    Pros

    Flexibility and endless opportunity to earn commission. The car package is great too. Free car, free gas, free insurance. The flexibility ensures a healthy work/life balance. Recognition is a plus for Cintas. They post results daily/weekly/monthly/quarterly so you know where you stand vs. your peers.

    Cons

    Salary is very low compared to other sales organizations. Another downside to Cintas is that there is very little room to grow if you are not a white male. Our organizations leaders above my role are all white males. This is discouraging. There is also no focus on growing an individuals strengths or improving their weaknesses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on improving your sales force on an individual level.

    Pros

    Cintas offers all partners the opportunity to advance in the company. Cintas offers training in virtually every area of the business through online programs and seminars. Management at this company has an open door policy and respects the ideas of their partners. Cintas offers great benefits and fronts the cost for the majority of these. Work hard with this company and good things will come to you.

    Cons

    Management can sometimes be slow to move on important iniatives. Goals are often very lofty and can sometimes be seen as unachievable. The 401K match is subpar to other companies of this size and bonuses are very hard to reach.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go to partners in the field before and major decision is made and get their opinions.

    Pros

    The best reason to work for Cintas Document is the atmosphere of a smaller company with the backing of a corporation. Every day my immediate supervisor give constructive feedback to help me succeed. They are always available, knowledgeable, and eager to keep their employees happy. In fact, keeping their employees happy is their goal. Every review I do is centered around the mantra of keeping their employees happy.

    Cons

    A downside is also the atmosphere of a smaller company. If you aren't the type that craves constant contact with your boss than Cintas Document is not for you. I find it o.k. but at times it can feel like overkill. I wonder, at times, why he's in my business... but I guess that's his job....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be consistent so we can help you out.

    Pros

    Good Benefits, and compensation package.

    Cons

    Awful operations, complain about the budget and now how customers are being taken care of. Sales are expected to sell with lack of inventory. Have to sign 5 year contract.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care more about customers and not budgets and maybe the budget will fix itself.

    Pros

    You get back what you put in. If you care about your performance and desire the responsibility that may greatly affect many aspects of the business Cintas is for you. You are your own manger in many respects & with that comes the expectation that you will achieve the goals necessary to grow your business and greatly increase the long term value of the company. Working with the customers & helping your partners achieve their goals is a hallmark of what is great about being a manager @ Cintas.

    Cons

    Work/life balance but to be great many hours have to be put in & hard work is necessary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay true to the foundations of our business. Niche markets should not comprise the foundation for the years business plan. We're great at floor mats, towels, the rental & purchase of uniforms. Stay committed to this and our long term value will be sure to grow.

    Pros

    Career Advancement opportunities for those that want to work hard.

    Cons

    You have to pay the price to be great, which means sometimes way more than 40+ a week. Have to adapt to situations on the fly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to invest in R&D and technology.

    Pros

    Career development and growth potential they provide a great platform for you to hone your skills. Cintas is a strong company that rewards partners based on performance and not tenure. The future is bright despite the slow economy, that will eventually turn around. Cintas is a cash company and will always be driven by its customers and its ability to make profits by exceeding customers expectations. When Cintas took over our company we saw a dramatic improvement and structure that helped all the partners excel beyond what they thought was possible I could not be happier about my choice to work for Cintas.

    Cons

    The amount of hours you will put in. If you are a non stop go getter you will never take time off unless you are made to by management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great place to work and grow.

    Pros

    The benefits are one of the best features of employment at Cintas. My health insurance is second to none. The support for a balance between my professional life and personal life is outstanding, even though long hours are sometimes needed to get my work done. The people at my location are awesome to work with. Opportunity for advancement is great!

    Cons

    Salary partners sometimes work long, long hours. The dental insurance is nothing to write home about, but still good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good job overall, but could use a little more people skills.
