Management Trainee Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

Average Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Cintas in January 2016.

Interview

Whole process was a huge waste of time for both myself and the employees who interviewed me. Was interviewed by 4 different people one of which gave me a tour of their facility. As soon as I interviewed with the first person i could tell this was a waste of time. All 4 people just asked me their questions in their interview guide then wrote down my answers and then politely told me to leave. It was pretty rude and very pointless for me to go back three times. I never heard back after about two months of waiting so I finally decided to call just to see why no one contacted me telling me i was rejected. The entire process really left a bad taste in my mouth about the company and i hope I just caught this branch at a bad time.

Interview Questions

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Cintas (Sacramento, CA) in November 2015.

    Interview

    My first interview was with the HR Director and it was phenomenal. I was invited back about a month later with other students to do a site tour and round-robin interviews with several general managers from the area. They spent more time asking about my hobbies, personal life, and interests rather than my work ethic. After a group lunch, each general manager took an applicant to an office to either offer/decline employment. I was surprised that the general managers decided so quickly as to who they wanted working for them.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cintas (Bedford Park, IL) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Introduction and greetings were conversational and relaxed. I felt welcomed and comfortable. The interview structure was much more formal and included a lot of STAR based questions. The interview process is lengthy but they are looking for people who fit with their culture. The people at Cintas have been great throughout the process.
