    I worked at Cintas full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Cintas is an amazing place to work! I was fortunate enough to work for this great company for over 4 years in a Director of Sales position. The corporate culture is like no other company, leadership actually cares about their "partners", and as long as you are a results-oriented person then the sky is the limit for you. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Cintas to anyone who's interested in working for a large, publically traded company with a GREAT CULTURE!

    Cons

    The only area Cintas could improve in is by having the ability to make quicker decisions and eliminating some of the "Red Tape". With that said, some of this is absolutely necessary since the organization is so large, but by giving more decision making ability to the "FIELD LEADERSHIP TEAM" will allow the company to take their business to the next level. Other than that IT IS ONE OF THE BEST COMPANY'S THAT I HAVE EVER OR WILL EVER WORK FOR!

    Advice to Management

    Trust in your field leaders and know that they will make the best decisions for the Client, Partner & Corporation as a whole.

    I have been working at Cintas full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are great, opportunity for advancement, multiple locations to relocate, guaranteed full time hours, steady work, co-workers are great.

    Cons

    Politics, management isn't great, not the same Cintas at each location, everything depends on who the GM is and what division you're in. Then it trickles down from there.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest, treat your "partners" with respect, train the ones who want it/need it, get rid of the ones who don't care. Without the partners, you don't exist and your position means nothing.

    I worked at Cintas full-time

    Pros

    1. Great Company!!
    2. Cintas has very good Benefits

    Cons

    1. Can be very long days/hours.
    2. If you do not have a College Degree they will NOT promote you to be a Service Manager or go into Sales.

    Advice to Management

    If you want new hires and employess/partners to stay you need to Promote from within the Company more. I'm not saying hiring from the outside is a bad thing, but when it becomes the norm and some of those hires have zero experience, your employees don't feel valued. I worked for Cintas for 15 Years and left because of that reason.

    I worked at Cintas full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Big company, great benefits, they promote a lot from within. They have a really good Management Trainee program, and really good sales training.

    Cons

    You always have to do better. They won't accept that you did a good job, it's never ever, ever, ever good enough.

    Advice to Management

    Give credit when credit is due. Understand that positive discontent makes the company better, but celebrate the wins a bit longer.

    I have been working at Cintas full-time

    Pros

    Great culture, decent base pay

    Cons

    Expected to do a significant amount of work outside of business hours. 8-5 in the field then all paperwork and additional training after initial hire date is to be done before or after business hours. If you have a family or value your free time this may not be the company for you.

    Advice to Management

    Money isn't everything, expectations of using out dated, non-efficient systems to submit new accounts outside of business hours is too high.

    I worked at Cintas full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent benefits, mostly friendly coworkers, 4 days a week for SSRs, lots of room to grow and be promoted. Safe place to work. If you are very competitive and don't mind blue collar work, this is good spot to land.

    Cons

    Cold corporate mentality, yet lots of KoolAid. Service management is a boy's club, can be unprofessional. Most managers worked their way up with no college education, some see ambitious young people as job threats. Inner-circle is visible - the GM and 2 or 3 service managers. Politics in the workplace. Lots of aggressive alpha-dog types, prevents cohesion and diversity.

    Advice to Management

    Crack down on unprofessional people. Don't let people slide just because they hit the number. If you want to keep millennial managers, loosen up and provide better work-life. Ensure your MTs get trained and not forced out by jealous managers.

    Pros

    It's a good place to launch your career and learn how to sell.

    Cons

    The company has significantly changed over the last couple of years. Management lives in a box, drinks the kool-aid and does not care about the front line people.

    Advice to Management

    Start listening to your people! You only care about your stock price and what benefits your number.
