    Pros

    Paycheck and OK benefits. I need a 20 word minimum but don't have anything else positive to say.

    Cons

    Work/life balance: Virtually non existent most of the time. Forget having a personal life and overtime is mandatory. If you have to leave to go handle personal business, expect a guilt trip.
    Advancement opportunity: Unless you are friends with the managers or don't lick their boots, forget it. I have watched the hardest working and most reliable people get denied advancement while they promote/train their cronies, friends, and family. They don't want to promote from within usually unless you fit into one of the previous categories I just mentioned. They don't offer incentive to keep working your butt off because it is dead end.
    Management: They say that they want "partners"(servants) to mention safety issues but when you do be prepared to be looked at as though you are a criminal. Safety issues are selectively chosen and even if you have a valid safety concern, it probabaly will not be listened to. Management doesn't know how to communicate effectively and planning is non existent. They are anti worker in almost every way. Turn over reflects how poorly workers are treated.
    Pay and benefits: The annual "raises" are an insult to anyone who hasn't been brainwashed by this laughable company. You get a certain percentage every year. The problem lies with the fact that everyone gets the same percentage regardless of how hard someone works. The lazy guy gets the same percentage as the diligent worker. This isn't a way to motivate people. In fact, it is quite the contrary. The "annual reviews" are pointless because a great review doesn't get you a better raise. Health insurance is very good and it isn't too expensive.
    Culture/values: Promote friends and family even if they are lazy and incompetent. Screw the hard working internal "partners." Work people long and hard without any real reward. This sums up the "culture and values" section.
    Additional comment: If you are working for Cintas, just remember that if they are planning on moving their location, that you may have to use your own vehicle to help. Cintas usually leases their buildings so moving to another building can and does happen. Just remember though that you will be told to use your own vehicle to help them move their STUFF!! You pay for your own gas and you will not be reimbursed! This company makes big bucks but they are going to make their "partners" move their equipment, Cintas should have to pay for their own move. People don't go to work to pay you but come to work to get paid. This really says what Cintas thinks of their employees.

    Pros

    health benefits. Not more to say about that company.
    Oh and maybe it's better than not having a job but that's about it.

    Cons

    Management favors and will only promote those
    If you put in your notice they will immediately throw you off the premises
    They allow their favorite customer service reps to bully others
    if you are a favorite you will get away with murder. if not you better follow all the rules closely
    people that quit are being called names and threatened

    Advice to Management

    get rid from everyone that is the top management. Just because the branch is making great income, doesn't mean they treat their employees right.

    Pros

    Hours was good
    Pay was descent
    Culture was ok
    Gained some sales experience.
    They do practice safety

    Cons

    There was no growth at the company. Management is unfair, they purposely did not allow me to grow. They didn't issue any raises. Somehow when I transferred in the company I had to take a pay cut

    Advice to Management

    Be fair

    Pros

    hours, if you are an SSR then you have a chance at a good job...i have nothing else but im forced to put min 20 words so just writing stuff to fill in the blank

    Cons

    pay is horrible, management is worse, raises are a joke, turn over never stopped, job title means nothing (they will stick you wherever they feel like), if you show initiative, prepare that to be abused like none other!

    Advice to Management

    start over, stop pulling random people in from random places and actually know they qualify for said position, when a problem occurs, actually try to fix it instead of tossing it under the rug, thats how you lose employees

    Pros

    Good people, established corporate culture, diversity of customer base

    Cons

    lack of technology (MS-DOS and bar code scanning based systems are the norm), 'cheap' is disguised as 'spartan attitude' at Cintas, slow speed at which change occurs...

    Advice to Management

    your workforce is not getting any younger - the company should rethink its strategy for talent development...a crisis is looming.
