    Pros

    Sounded really promising in the orientation that we would be working more that what we got paid.

    Didn't pay us well under the extreme working conditions we had to underdo.

    Keep an eye out for the ones working hard and hardly working.

    Great company to work with as long as your keep you customers.

    They tell you to do whatever it takes to grow and maintain your route, but then they don't back you up when you lose an account.

    I worked at Cintas (More than a year)

    Pros

    Safe company to work for. Good benefits. 4 day work week.

    Cons

    There is always "potential". Too large of a disconnect from corporate and its employees. Pay is terrible. Overtime pay is a joke. You can work your hardest to try to succeed but it is all for nothing because your pay is based off your route which changes with the economy.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees for their time.

    Pros

    The hours are real good. Get paid weekly.

    Cons

    Co workers do not work together. A lot of coworkers talk about one another.

    I worked at Cintas full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Big company with a positive outlook. Has stood the test of time and a down economy. Competitive pay but you'll have to work hard for it.

    Cons

    High corporate earnings growth expectations lead to some very poor, shortsighted decisions being made by middle management. Many locations fail because of bad General Managers and department managers. Avoid Denver, CO location at all costs.

    Advice to Management

    Mountain Group needs a major overhaul. I worked in 3 different groups and the Mountain was the only one that I truly felt that they were not acting in the best interests of partners or the company as a whole.

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

    Pros

    I enjoyed the work I did. It was challenging and rewarding. I enjoyed my co workers a lot and made for a great working environment.

    Cons

    The pay scale is crazy low! Not enough woman being promoted into management positions. It's more of a "boys club". Where I was there was no real room for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Start promoting more women and offer more ways for advancement outside of having to become a route sales representative.

    Treat your employees as humans. Give bonuses and rewards for employees who consistently exceed standards
