    Pros

    The management staff really do look out for you. My first week my manager gave me his 2 year plan for my career into management. Amazing company. Anna is the best HR manager I have ever met, she is super knowledgeable and always has time for you.

    Cons

    No cons as of now. Warehouse gets a little hot a few solar panels on the roof and the could A/C the place a little better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.

    I have been working at Cintas full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Cintas has very good benefits, so far I have experienced good support from management. If I see something is not working out I suggest a solution and so far they have worked on it. Room for advancement, they have a lot of opportunities but you really have to earn them, you have to work your tail off but your hard work will pay off. Promotions are based on how hard you work and not how long you have been working here. So for the hard working individuals this is a rewarding career.

    Cons

    Pay could be a little better. You will work with lazy people who complain and won't do what they are supposed to do because the job is hard. Long hours, hard back breaking work, not meant for work-shy individuals. Old trucks that break down a lot.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider replacing all the old vehicles that break down nearly every week, it will pay off right away considering newer trucks have better gas mileage and less money will be spent on parts and repairs.

    I have been working at Cintas for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great training, great culture. Company is focused on developing leaders and has figured out how to do it. Great place to work if you're looking to grow your career

    Cons

    Tough work-life balance in certain roles. Sales organization is demanding and requires high activity but most reps and managers are well compensated for their efforts. Highly respected company.

  7.

    Pros

    Best reason to work here is the people that you work with. Cintas will only hire people that fall into their corporate culture and that makes it a good place to work.

    Cons

    I believe the front line partners are a little underpaid for the amount of work and hours they do. However, management is good about doing Partner Appreciation events and making the work environment a good one.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would compensate the people that are doing your day-to-day operations more. They are the real reason for the company's successes and work very hard.

    I worked at Cintas full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The culture is very good. There is never a lack of training, (sometimes too much), but overall it is beneficial to the division. There was never a lack of opportunity to advance (as long as you are willing to relocate).

    Cons

    You have to be careful what you say and to whom. You have to know who your friends are. When it comes to partner engagement, it's a laughing matter. If you are on the corporate side, which I was, there is zero partner engagement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The location management is great, it's the corporate management that needs to practice what they preach.

    I worked at Cintas full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good starting pay, chances to advance in the company, innovative products and a well established profitable company, great benefits and good talented people, great corporate culture.

    Cons

    Hard to balance family/work life, stressful job, always changing KPIs so they are out of reach, will restructure pay plans if a SSR is performing well so they are less compensated, once they identify someone is not meeting expectations - they become a target instead of trying to work with the partner.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Run a route if you didn't come up that way into management...and if you did, remember how difficult and demanding it was.

    Pros

    Managers CARE about your success because it reflects their success.

    Cons

    When routes get too big, they cut the routes down to create a new route. This directly affects your pay because if your route is the one that is too big you lose more customers than other routes and sort of "start over" with a smaller territory, making less commission. You then start building it again over the years until they cut it down again. Cycle continues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire management from within- hire managers who have been a service sales rep in first aid & safety division for at least a year. Dont hire outside people; it takes too long for them to figure out how we do our jobs. Some never get it.

    Pros

    Cintas is an amazing company. I LOVE the Corporate Culture that runs through the veins of Cintas! There is so much opportunity to advance. So many bonus money opportunities! I've never made so much money in my whole life!

    Cons

    Overall, there really are no cons. There are an awful lot of little details in the pay plan that make it not so easy to understand fully. But management there is very patient and will explain every detail until you understand.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't ever forget about Competitive Urgency! Attention to detail!
