Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Cintas.

Interview

They first had me complete a virtual interview, which I thought was pretty innovative and cool. After passing that step, they brought me in and had me interview first with the service manager and second with the branch manager. I was not expecting to do two interviews so I was a little drained by the end of it. It lasted a little over an hour and a half. They were very nice and accommodating to me however and I recommend applying here.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Cintas (Wilkes-Barre, PA).

    Interview

    I applied online after I met with them at a job fair. They called me the following day and did an on the spot short phone interview. These questions ranged from simple things like relocation, and if I can work in the US to a few behavioral based questions. However, they did also ask two uncomfortable questions over the phone. "What is your desired salary?" and "Are you doing any other interviews? and if so with who?" Personally I didn't think it was any of their business. After completing this interview, she invited me in for an interview on location two days later. I showed 15 minutes early and they started the interview 15 late. I went through three scripted behavioral based interviews, each lasting about 20 minutes, and asking about 5-6 questions. They seem to go really well, everyone was nice. Then for my 4th interview of the day I met with the branch manager. His interview style was not at all scripted, he was sarcastic in an inappropriate way. He covered my resume highlighting everything but my top accomplishments and asked questions about them. It was really more of a grilling session to see if I could handle it I think, but in a rude way. At that point I was turned off from the branch. They never called to say that I wasn't moving on, but frankly I'm glad they didn't.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Cintas.

    Interview

    Seemed unorganized, didn't know what the other hand was doing. I had a phone interview with one portion of the company and was told I would hear back within a week...nothing. When I called the HR manager I interviewed with, he never called back. Then I had more interviews with Cintas for the emerging business portion and they had no answer for the HR manager on the uniform side never contacting me again.

    Interview Questions

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cintas (Maryville, TN) in October 2012.

    Interview

    I met with them at my college job fair. I then met with a plant manager on my college campus. From there, I got a call back for a final interview at the plant site itself and met with two different floor managers, I lost all interest when I walked into the plant itself. This is a blue collar job with a white collar name.

    Reasons for Declining

    The plant I interviewed with was a "good-ole boys" kind of workplace. Most of the employees we're male and kind of goofy. In my interview, I was explained multiple times that I would be working with "god fearing country people" and that they embraced that idea. There was only so far you can rise with the company.
