    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.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cintas (San Jose, CA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through a recruiter. Called me and I answered a few basic interview questions and scheduled a face to face interview with the District Manager. The face to face interview went very quick. The problem is that they had already identified their candidate before I even interviewed. The interview was rushed and I was not asked any serious questions. It felt like they interviewed me just to say they interviewed a veteran for the job.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at Cintas (Dallas, TX) in April 2016.

    Interview

    The process began with a short phone interview with HR. First in-person interview with the Sales Manager went well, I went on a half-day ride along the next week where we cold-called and he told me about the day to day, then two more interviews in the following weeks. I was called and told that I was being offered the position at the end of the 4th week contingent on a reference check, background check and drug screening. I completed my references via an online form. Now I'm just waiting... The ball is in their court. It's now been almost 7 weeks since my first phone interview and HR and the manager has not responded to my calls or emails for the next steps. Very unprofessional and I'm hesitatant to accept the offer if they decide to hire me.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Cintas (Tampa, FL) in February 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was a pleasure to participate in. Their recruiter was very helpful and provided a ton of insight into both the position and the history of the company. The process itself consisted of a few phone interviews to pre-qualify whether or not I was a good fit as a candidate, and concluded with an in-person meeting with the area sales manager.

    Application

    Interview

    Recruiter reached out to me on Linkedin. The whole process was mismanaged from the beginning to the end. I e-mailed to let me know I am no longer interested then their sales manager drives down(2 hours) to meet with me. The next step was an interview with his boss the next day(never happened). I text him and then he ask if he can set up a time to talk. He calls to let me know they have now found other candidates they are interested in. If this is how they treat applicants they recruit for I cannot imagine working for this organization.
