Management Trainee Interview

Management Trainee

I applied through college or university and interviewed at Cintas.

Interview Details – Went on countless interviews through my University with several men who were the heads of their department. They are intimidated by someone who wants to further their education and not want to be stuck in one position for however long they decide to keep you around. Also, you will be relocating with no assistance & idea until the last minute.

Interview Question – Pretty standard questions.   Answer Question

Easy Interview

Management Trainee Interview

Management Trainee
Gainesville, FL

I applied through college or university and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Cintas in January 2014.

Interview Details – Interview conducted on campus. Straightforward. Younger man I had met during the career fair, older HR lady. She read questions off a clipboard, he talked to me more casually. After running through standard questions like "what's your greatest achievement?" and her writing things down, I tried to steer to a more conversational interview, asking about their opinions on the company. Once I did this I felt I couldn't get a word in edgewise and they just talked until no one could remember the original question.

Interview Question – All pretty standard interview questions.   Answer Question

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Cintas in April 2014.

Interview Details – Was first contacted by the company via phone where a phone interview took place. After I passed that I was brought in for a interview that was an all day event. I first took a test on the computer where the first part was simple questions of how you would react in certain situations and the second part involving some math problems. Next I met with 5 different managers where they asked the standard questions in a STAR format.
