    Scholar Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Whittier, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Cintas (Whittier, CA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    There are 4 interviews. You must pass one to move to the next. They don't tell you until your second interview which is with HR. Online the job description sounds amazing. When I went to the third interview, it started to make sense why the last Intern only lasted a month. (HR told me during my second interview; bad move). Outside sales, cold calling, and delivering and picking up uniforms are a few of the required duties. The Scholar Intern position is supposed to "transition" you to their Management Trainee program which is average 2-3 years. However, you must apply to be apart of the Trainee program; it's not guaranteed.
    Also, the third person I interviewed with did not have a welcoming demeanor the entire interview. My major is something else but I felt as if the interviewer was attacking me "because it's not this field". There are many college students that go into fields that are opposite of their major. I was not given a fourth interview but I am delighted that I was not. Word of advice to Cintas: Please careful in who you choose to conduct interviews because they represent your company.

    Management Trainee Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Cintas (Atlanta, GA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I approached them at a career fair and I was offered an on-campus interview the next day. After that, I was selected to move forward to Round Robin interviews at their local warehouse and office. This consisted of a grueling process of 7 interviews with their GMs and other executives, a warehouse tour, and lunch. While most of the interviewers were very nice and inviting, the process itself is really stressful and by the 4th or 5th interview, you are extremely tired and most likely repeating things you've already said. Dress extremely professional and do not wear any jewelry such as nose rings. Even though this mentality is extremely outdated, I could tell Cintas definitely did not like that I wore my nose ring, even though it was for a religious purpose! Also, after the round robin interviews, we were told we would get contacted within 5 business days, but I did not get an email for almost 2-3 weeks. At one point, I stopped expecting it too. When I finally did get an email, it was a concise paragraph with the usual "we regret to inform you" stuff. Nothing about what went wrong at all, so that was discouraging.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Cintas (Puyallup, WA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    6 interviews, long vetting process. S.T.A.R. method used during interview. Easy interviews, just have to meet everyone on the sales team. Signed offer letter and got the job, just waited for HR to give me my day 1. Three weeks later was told position was not going to be filled, and thank you for my time. So, 2 months of interviews and waiting, for nothing.
