    Pros

    Relatively good salary and benefits.

    Cons

    Incredibly inflexible. No work from home even in IT. Business formal for everyone. Ties and jackets in the HQ for men. Women must wear hosiery. No eating lunch at your desk. Company policies were 100 pages.

    Advice to Management

    Get with the times. Trust your employees.

    Pros

    4 day work week, reasonable salary if you work hard to make good commissions, mostly friendly co-workers

    Cons

    Horrible managers, below average hourly rates before factoring in commissions, not great working conditions, favoritism when promoting

    Advice to Management

    Stop micromanaging everyone. Get a mechanic on site so the drivers don't have to check their own fluid levels and refill as necessary.

    Pros

    Outstanding technicians. Good amount of autonomy for day-to-day work. You make your own schedule for the most part. I really enjoyed interacting with customers and seeing some very interesting places & businesses.

    Cons

    The main issue with Cintas is that they hire their managers straight from college or other industries as managers, not from their technicians. As such, their service managers have little to no industry knowledge. In other words, they don't hire managers from the technician ranks unless you have a college degree. These managers have little to no idea what they're talking about compared to the technicians who actually complete the tasks and understand exactly how long certain tasks take and what is required.

    Additionally, I have found that many managers have little to no integrity. They'll say & do whatever they need to in order to meet their sales/service quotas, please their supervisors, and advance their careers. It is very demoralizing to the technicians who actually care about the fire protection industry & customer service.

    Advice to Management

    Hire service managers from the technician pool and I promise your profits & efficiency will increase. Also, focus more on real customer service over profits and again, your profits will increase due to repeat customers and additional services rendered.

    Pros

    Good benefits and car package for managers.

    Cons

    They work you like a dog for lower range salary. In my location at least 50 but usually 60 hours a week. Poor morale.

    Advice to Management

    You get more with honey than you do with vinegar.
