    I have been working at Cintas

    Pros

    Very supportive management. In depth training. Excellent pay plan.

    Cons

    None so far. The only draw back is that you are learning a lot quickly in the beginning during training. But it is manageable.

    Former Employee - Route Skipper and SSR Trainee in Union, NJ

    I worked at Cintas

    Pros

    Four day work week and no set end time. When you finish your route or duties you are free to go.

    Cons

    Some leadership lacked accountability and left you out to dry at certain points. You had to fend for your self at different points to get by

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more involved instead behind a desk. Take pride in your workers who ultimately make you look good and contribute to your bonus. Worry more about respect and employees then numbers

    I worked at Cintas

    Pros

    The pay was pretty good at $85,000

    Cons

    You will be working 12 hour days. Everyone says family is a priority but it isn't. And do not believe them when they give you a timeline of when you will be promoted to GM or sales manager. It doesn't happen no matter how good your reviews are.
