Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Cintas (Kennesaw, GA) in May 2016.

Interview

The process took a bit longer than expected, but is understandable. The company is in the business of partnering with their new hires so they want to insure that they are bringing on the right people at any cost.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Cintas (West Chester, OH) in December 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a Cintas recruiter who saw my resume online and asked me if I would be interested in the position. She was very nice and informative about the position. After our phone interview she scheduled an interview with what would be my direct manager. Also a great experience. The interview was very laid back and the manager was very nice and informative. From there a ride-along was scheduled with one of the top reps she was great to ride with for the day. Then another interview was scheduled with the manager for the other team they work side by side with. He was also great! He had recently been promoted to a director role but they wanted me to meet with him since his replacement had not yet been decided. From there I had an interview with the VP of sales who was wonderful. Then I waited almost a week before I heard anything. They scheduled another interview with the person who had taken over for the director. He was awesome as well and told me he wanted to hire me. So 5 actual interviews and a ride-along and I was offered the job. Overall a great experience (but yes a long process) and everyone I met just made me feel more confident about going to work for Cintas! What a great culture and great people!!

    • Tell me about a time that you had to negotiate a contract with a new account   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I negotiated a bridge to cover me until I start making commission because I am coming from a position that offers a much higher base. I also negotiated the car allowance to start day one since I would be returning my company car and purchasing a car

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cintas (Cincinnati, OH).

    Interview

    Overall process was thorough; didn't make it all of the way through. Interviews tended to be on the brief side, managers were hard to read, not personable, not very friendly. Possibly done intentionally, although in all likeliness did not seem like a company I would want to work for. Interviewers had a sense of urgency, seeming to desire to breeze through the interview and get it over with. One went so far as to say "luckily we don't have to ask all of the questions, just a few" and the entire thing lasted 10-15 minutes. Very disheartening experience.

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Cintas in November 2015.

    Interview

    Phone screening, in person, field ride, second interview with hiring manager, director interview, interview with VP. The field ride is highly beneficial. If you don't enjoy the field ride and don't see yourself doing what they are doing, then the job is not for you.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Cintas (Minneapolis, MN) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Total of 5 interviews. Recruiter, Hiring Manager (Sales Manager), GM, Sales Director and VP. There is a ride day (they pay you for) after the Sales Manager interview. First half of the ride day was "phone block" where they all sit in a room and dial for appointments. They try to make it fun and play games during breaks. It was pretty corny, and I could tell this is part of their process which they are very committed to. The people were very nice, but I know before they even started dialing this probably wouldn't be a great fit for me. I convinced myself to see it through the entire process and was trying to talk myself into a good company fit, but in the end I couldn't see myself doing it. I probably should have pulled out earlier instead of wasting my time going through the process. Cintas looks like a solid company with good growth plans. That being said, it's not a complicated sale and I didn't see a high level of sales acumen needed. Probably a great fit for someone with a few years of sales experience and not a seasoned sales veteran.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Cintas (Lawrenceville, GA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    The process was not a difficult panel interview, but was an individual that primarily asked situational questions. There were some "get acquainted" questions so that the interviewer could get to know you. Rather relaxed towards the end as he told me about his career with the company and his respect for the company.

    Sales Representative - Facility Services Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Greenville, SC

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cintas (Greenville, SC) in April 2015.

    Interview

    30 minute phone interview was pleasant and had typical STAR/behavioral type questions as well as reviewing and clarifying my resume. One question included, "Give me a time you you had a setback and at work and turned it into something positive in the same week." Interviewer was nice and quite helpful in terms of suggesting things to focus on during my 1 on 1 interview.

    1 on 1 interview was pretty typical and was only about 20-30 minutes long. I found the interview questions to be easier in this interview than in the phone interview. Questions were fair, but not hard. No gotcha questions. Pretty basic questions.
