    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Cintas (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Company recruiter followed by 2 in person interviews. If you are a true sales professional you can tell from the interview process if the company is right for you. I could tell very quickly this is not a company that I would invest my time working at. Interview process was very amateur and so were the managers with whom I interviewed.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Cintas (Maywood, IL) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied a couple of weeks ago for several positions & your company can't even call me to chat about it or possibly set up a interview. I had a interview with one of your manager's at the Maywood IL location but the day of interview he called me & cancelled saying he had a emergency in the field but would call back to reschedule interview. well that never happened & even when I called him to leave a message he didn't return my call. doesn't seem very uprofessional to do something like this? Have a wonderful day.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Cintas (Piscataway, NJ).

    Interview

    Went for an interview where they told me they loved me and wanted to have me come in for another interview/field ride... Was not contacted when they said they would contact me so I reached out a total of 3 times and finally got my second interview AND field ride. Spent 6 hours of my day on a field ride to never receive a call or email after... It's been a month. I'd decline at this point now anyway. Unprofessional and awkward.

    Interview

    HR rep emailed to schedule a time to interview via phone. I called in because the rep forgot that she scheduled the interview with me. I was told I would receive a call back in 24 hours and did not. I emailed the rep and the rep did not respond. Very unprofessional!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Cintas (Westland, MI) in August 2016.

    Interview

    The hiring process is over a month long and they drag their feet the whole time. They constantly made me feel like they were too good of a company to hire certain types of people. The HR department was always really nice and so was the manager. I did a ride along with an employee and that was a little awkward, then I interviewed with the VP and he never looked at my resume nor did he come prepared.

    Interview Questions

    • Why should I hire you?
      Where you see yourself in 5 years?
      Why CINTAS?
      They ask a lot of questions regarding company history

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Cintas (Piscataway, NJ) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Pleasant interview with the sales manager. He appeared authentic and was engaging throughout the interview. He thoroughly explained the position I had applied for and went through your typical work week and the advantages of working at Cintas. The interview was semi-structured meaning that the hiring manager asked a bunch of questions and took notes; more conversation than interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Explain your resume?
      Why do you want to work at Cintas?
      Why do you want to work in sales?
      Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
      What makes a top sales rep?

      Pretty basic interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Cintas (San Jose, CA).

    Interview

    Long interview process over 3 weeks, I had 3 interviews and a field day for the first position. No offer but was told a manager at a different office liked my resume. So another 3 week process with 2 interviews and then "made it to the next step" by going on another field day. Field days took awhile to set up because the reps had to set appointments to go on first, a total joke. My first field day didn't have any meetings to try and sell we just went by current clients for a quick hello and no selling involved. Second field day was a little better by going on a whopping 1 appointment which he then realized they already used Cintas and cancelled their service in the past.

    Interview Questions

    • Standard interview questions that they actually have to read off a piece of paper and all the same questions with each manager   Answer Question
