    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience

    Interview

    1st had a phone screen then was emailed to have a
    2nd in person interview after was invited to do a
    3rd interview and ride along

    I did not go to the ride along as the base pay they offered after a certain amount of time would go from $18 and drop down to $311/week plus commission

    Interview Questions

    • Phone screen was easy they just went over the position with me and ask what I currently did for work.
      2nd in person interview was just situational questions "tell me about a time when you had to deal with a difficult customer" "tell me when you went above and beyond for a customer"

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    Very good process. Questions were straight forward. They treat you quite well and offer a nice benefits package. The interview will test your abilities but is not behavioral in nature. The company has a lot of opportunities and to move to a new location is very easy

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Cintas (Buffalo, NY) in February 2017.

    Interview

    A total of 6 interviews spanned over two weeks, followed by 2 weeks of silence. Seems to be management heavy, 3 of the interviews were conducted by middle management, 1 interview conducted by the GM, 1 phone interview and 1 ride along. Wasted a lot of time resulting in a form rejection letter.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Cintas in February 2017.

    Interview

    Very unique interview process, a Red Robin interview where you interview with three different managers. They were all very friendly and asked behavioral type questions. Involved a 60 second elevator pitch at the end. They tour you around the facility to show you what working there will be like. I appreciated the honesty and transparency the managers exhibited during the interview process.

    • Talk about a situation where you could not meet a specified goal and how you handled it.   Answer Question

    Management Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbia, SC

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Cintas (Columbia, SC) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I was approached by a Cintas representative at my school's career fair, after speaking briefly she signed me up for an on-campus interview for the next week. I was interviewed by another employee and it was a painful experience. She fired off questions at me while writing down my word-for-word responses on a worksheet like sheet of paper which listed all of the questions she was asking me along with blanks for her to write my answers. It felt like I was being interrogated rather than interviewed. At the end of the interview she informed me that I'd be receiving an email about a round robin style interview with the program managers, which she mentioned would be the final interview round. She made it very clear that I was making it to the next round. The day that I was supposed to receive the confirmation email, I instead got an email from the representative I met at the career fair thanking me for my time but saying I had not moved on to the next level of interviews. Very unprofessional to be told I've moved on to the next step and then days later receiving an email saying I wasn't the right fit.
