    Interview process took 3 weeks. First interview was a ride along with one of their reps, followed by a series of interviews from different managers and levels. All in all, the interview process was very thorough. They want to get the best candidates.

    Sales Representative Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cintas (Savannah, GA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    First there was a phone interview. It was very pleasant and lasted about half an hour. Two weeks later I received a call to set up an in person interview with the hiring manager. I met with him and he asked me several questions about my background, then did two role plays. He then folded his hands and asked if I had any questions. Well, 1 hour and 15 minutes went by and we finished the interview. I though I did very well and engaged my "client" and asked all the pertinent questions. He then said I would hear from him the following week for a "ride with" and then an interview with his boss and finally an interview with the VP of sales. I never heard from him again until I emailed a week later to ask what the timeline will be. Two days later I received a thanks but no thanks letter. I sent all the necessary correspondence and thank you emails throughout the process. Not quite sure what happened.

    Interview Questions

    • The role play was how to get the gate keeper to the decision maker. Then how to get the decision maker to talk to you after they said they are satisfied with their current vendor. Basic stuff.....   Answer Question

    Sales Representative - Uniform Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Cintas (Dallas, TX) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I had 5 interviews that lasted 4-5 weeks. 1 face to face with the hiring Manager, 2 ride along with the Sales Team Captain, 1 with the Director and the final interview was with the Vice President. The final interview was in Houston, TX the position was for Dallas, where I reside. I was told by the hiring manager that he would reimburse me for the trip. That never happened I reached out to the hiring manager via phone and email, about being reimbursed, (I have receipts) he never answered either. It's been over 30 days and I haven't heard from them. My warning for those that are interviewing at the Dallas, TX location, if your final interview is outside of Dallas, opt for a video conference interview or get compensated before leaving.

    Had basic phone interview with Human Resources manager. Was scheduled for an in person interview. Was not given address or the name of the person I was interviewing with. Had to look up address.
    Had three more in person interviews. None of the managers were prompt. Each one made me wait at least twenty minutes in the dark and drafty lobby.

    Management Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Cintas (Chicago, IL) in March 2017.

    Interview

    The first interview was a standard one on one interview that wasn't very difficult. The questions asked were ones you'd expect from any interview. The second interview was much more extensive, I was called into their office and spent 6 hours doing 3 interviews, meeting employees, touring the office, and participating in a fun competition although I'm not sure how closely evaluated it was. The interviews were pretty laid back with the same type of questions in the first interview. Everyone was very friendly and I didn't feel stressed at all.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cintas (Union City, NJ).

    Interview

    5 separate interviews for no apparent reason. Was a giant waste of time. They seem disorganized, no one knew what the other was doing. I don't think they had my intention of ever hiring me. I don't know why they put me through all that. However, the guy I did a ride along with was a great guy.
