    I worked at Cintas full-time

    Pros

    Great compensation, lots of potential for advancement, promotes from within in most cases

    Cons

    overworks the employees to no end, expects long long hours, limited support from management, acts like a typical old-school big corporation in how it treats their employees (anti-union, does not value seniority and experience, micromanages to the nth degree)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    hire more employees so that each one isn't so over worked. this would reduce turnover and create more stability. this would increase job performance, which would increase customer satisfaction. this would increase new business and revenue. this would improve customer perception and lead to more customers. this would truly set cintas as the leader in their market as opposed to trying to maintain this status barely.

    I have been working at Cintas full-time

    Pros

    Great learning experience, and decent work atmosphere

    Cons

    They work you into the ground and it created a high turnover for the company. The pay is very poor for how much they expect out of you. An average work week is 55+ hours and that is usually on the low end of the spectrum.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a better work to life balance as well as divide up the workload between all partners.

    Pros

    4 day work week with the chance to work less than 8 hours a day if you finish early.

    Cons

    Pay is good on certain routes, but other than that it come be better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I only see an issue with the GM at my location. She can be an impractical decision maker at times and lack social skills with the lower level team members.

    I have been working at Cintas full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Stable company with strong culture, above average benefits and good compensation plan. Company offers great initial training programs and encourages professionalism and high ethics. Good company with a strong foundation and values at a corporate level but sometimes gets lost at the local level.

    Cons

    Company sells itself on diversity and internal growth throughout the hiring process. Both are superficial promises. Limited opportunity for advancement. Most leadership positions are held by white males. Upper management makes false promises and lacks follow through. Follow through creates distrust and disengaged employees. Employee morale is low and most are just going through the motions. Upper management does not appreciate the value diverse employees have to offer. Most promotions are given to 'yes men" without initiative or proactive problem solving skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees feedback. Follow through on your commitments. Stop making false promises to avoid difficult conversations.

    They tend to over work you and they really stress safety but in all honesty the most dangerous place on earth

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure you have enough help during peak times like around the holiday's. Get Bigger trash Cans to deal with all the waste that comes out of the building at night.
