Easy Interview

Application

I applied through college or university – interviewed at Cintas.

Interview

Interview process was fairly easy, have two more lined up next week. Recruiter told me, if you make through all the interviews, you're probably a great fit. Reall conversational during the interview and it was easy going for the most part. They also got back in a timely matter, in regards to if you were moving on to the next interviews. Nice people. Dont have offer yet because I'm still going through the process.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at Cintas in February 2015.

    Interview

    Interview was somewhat informal which was good. Recruiter was very laid back, young and happy to be at my school recruiting. There were two recruiters interviewing but each had a candidate to interview in separate rooms.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Cintas in February 2015.

    Interview

    I spoke with a recruiter at my school's career fair. I was scheduled for an interview about 2 weeks later. The interview lasted about 30 minutes. I was expecting more questions. It was mostly me telling the interviewer what kinds of things I had been involved in. Then he talked about the job and asked me if I had any questions. I am still waiting to hear back.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Cintas (Mason, OH) in January 2015.

    Interview

    The HR I spoke to was very good with communication and made it very easy to understand what was going on. The interview process was like any other. More behavioral questions than anything. I had to go through a phone screening and then a face to face. I had to meet with multiple directors. I heard back relatively fast with an offer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 8 weeksinterviewed at Cintas (Vandalia, OH) in January 2015.

    Interview

    3 interviews total. 2 with current Management Trainees and the final one with the GM.
    Questions in all the interviews follow a sheet and they are all pretty standard management questions. They care a lot about safety so a handful of questions were about when you enforced a safety protocol. I had management experience at a fast food store so I pulled a lot of stories and experiences from that to answer the questions.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Cintas.

    Interview

    Had an on campus interview with basics questions about my resume, what I know about the company and why I want to work with Cintas. They want to know that you did your research so look up the company and learn. Then, got offered to do an interview at the Worburn, MA location. They payed for my hotel. The candidates had dinner the first day at an Italian restaurant with about 10 managers. Then, we got back to the hotel and the HR manager explained what was happening the next day. The next day, we had a round robin style interview. They put all of us in a room, a manager would come into the room and tell us we are next. We'd have about a 15 -20 min. interview per manager. I had 3 interviews. They really emphasize on relocation and each manager asked me to name my top 3 choices. All of their questions were based off of teamwork, projects and leadership positions (obviously). Also, make sure to ask a lot of questions to stand out. This requires a lot of research.

    Interview Questions

    • Mostly situational questions. Describe a time where you had to lead a team. Describe a time where you to give a presentation. Describe a time where someone disagreed with you. etc.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at Cintas.

    Interview

    I met the Cintas recruiters at the Career Fair on my campus. I was not interested in Cintas but as I was walking out of the Career Fair I thought of stopping by to see what they were about. One of the male recruiters had told me "I was watching you walk around the Career Fair hoping you would come over here." Inappropriate to say the least but I was new at this process. I applied online to a Managment Trainee position and they called me back to have an interview on campus. I met with two recruiters, one who had only been working with Cintas for a couple months. After the interview, I felt I did great, and they told me I had to meet with their manager next store. This manager asked me about 20 situational questions that were hard to answer. I pulled it together and felt I did okay. I followed up with all three interviewees after the interview and never heard back from either one of them.
