    I have been working at Cintas full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    4 Day work weeks. Never weekends. Avg. of 38 hrs a week. You control how much $$ you want to make with the commissions and bonus / direct sales package. Awesome benefits that are cheap due to the company being so big.

    Cons

    There is a lot of physical and dirty labor involved. You are working with dirty laundry and soiled towels and mats. It is hot and can get very tiring in the summer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't micro manage so much. Leadership needs to go out on route more often with the drivers to see what is happening out there in the field. Also; take the time to get to know the drivers and see what makes them tick. Don't forget to goodwill the huge accts; so when renewal time comes up they know who you are!!

    Pros

    Cintas takes it's culture very serious along with safety priority number one, while being a very ethical company. We all are very supportive of each other. There's so many opportunities to make money in the SSR position.

    Cons

    All service management partners should run a route for at least six months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support awesome... Pay awesome... Training awesome...The negative is, don't let new partners come aboard and try and manage us without experience. Its degrading

    Former Employee - Marketing Intern in Cincinnati, OH

    I worked at Cintas as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Learned a lot as an intern at the huge main headquarters. There were a ton of well-known businesses/companies that were clients/partners of Cintas. Cintas is more than just a cleaning business and there are many divisions including, First-Aid, textile and uniform manufacturing, Global Supply Chain Management, Graphic Design, Marketing and more. For full-time employees, there were many perks including excellent benefits and other unexpected bonuses, like tickets to the nearby King's Island Theme Park. Their focus is on corporate culture and creating an atmosphere of trust and high morale.

    Cons

    The hours were a typical, around 9AM-5PM and a half hour/hr break depending on workload. The job could become stressful if you have a lot to take on as a full-time employee and a few directors stayed beyond their usual hours to get the job done. As a summer intern I received $10/hour. If you're not into a cubicle atmosphere, then the marketing, global supply chain, or any other office is not for you. A bulk of the office time is spent at your cubicle or in a meeting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the positivity and emphasis on corporate culture. There isn't enough emphasis on positive office morale or positivity and it's refreshing that this is a primary focus for Cintas.

    Pros

    Good training is offered for employees. Pays well for certain positions

    Cons

    Big corporation that does not care about it's employees on an individual basis. They certainly do not value loyalty. Morale is low. Employees feel replaceable and under appreciated. Almost impossible to get promoted

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees like people and not just like names in a database

    I worked at Cintas

    Pros

    Fair pay, good benefits. Many chances to earn commissions on product sales. There is a lot of freedom to do things your way.

    Cons

    Horrible hours if you haven't paid your dues and worked up to a good route. Long days; mine were usually 12-14hrs. I had incompetent managers at the location I worked, but that will vary from place to place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand that if you fire a route driver, that route gets split between other drivers. When this happens, not every stop will get done at the same time it was done previously. Just an FYI
