    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

    Good advancement opportunities in company following completion of program. Generally positive environment. Large company with good upper management.

    Cons

    Challenging hours, duties, and pay. No job is guarenteed upon completion of program. MTs must be university graduates however many leaders in the company do not have degrees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Could better match sklls and qualities of the individuals with their work. A lot of pulling in different directions

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

    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
    Former Employee - Marketing Intern in Cincinnati, OH

    I worked at Cintas as an intern (less than a 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

    Flexible hours, decent benefits, good support and follow-up from manager.

    Cons

    Little to no training for my position, low pay for stress if you care about your job, good ol' boys club, if you aren't in sales, you feel like a peon. Demanding deadlines of which you get no compensatory benefit from. No team-building environment even though I am in sales.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Needs to show real value towards office staff, don't over promise on the little things that have been said to make work life easier/more enjoyable.
