    Pros

    Great Partners, Common Culture and Proud Professionalism are three things you can come to expect as a great experience working at Cintas Corporation.

    Cons

    Part of the company culture is to spend the companies money as if it were yours is designed to be frugal, but it is sometimes frugal to a fault at times!

    I worked at Cintas full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great company. I was a SSR, defiantly a lot of hard work but the pay was good for the work

    Cons

    Pushes a lot of sales. Constant meetings, weekly store meetings and with managers usually have the goals of increasing penetration with customers. Not a great job if you don't like to sell

    Pros

    Growing company. Promotes from within. National name recognition. Competitive pay and great benefits. Best in the industry.

    Cons

    Must be able to adapt to changing initiatives. Bar continues to raise every year on all key performance indicators.

    Pros

    Great training and support. Promote from within so opportunity to advance.

    Cons

    Typical corporate structure. Lots of policies and top down initiatives as well as dinosaur age technology and computer systems. can feel like a drone at times. Also have to get dirty and do some of the tough jobs out on the trucks/in plant if you want to advance. Pay could be more.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to promote from within. Consider a higher pay structure. A lot of hours and work put in for somewhat lower than average pay sometimes.

    I worked at Cintas full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great training, nice car package, rapid promotion if your in the right crowd. Very rewarding when you hit your numbers. Great leaping pad to bigger and better career moves.

    Cons

    Only way for rapid promotion is to be in the right crowd. Lots of looking out for friends instead of the best person.

    Advice to Management

    Stop squeezing the sales force to the point of making the same money, less or just a little bit more than previous year. When I started we could earn a ton. After 08' the raises sank too!
