    I have been working at Cintas full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Compensation and upward mobility are two components that make Cintas a great company to work for in this day and age.

    Cons

    Very long hiring process for sales roles that sometimes require extensive travel to meet with leadership. This can be daunting, but it's so worth it if you can actually get hired. Cintas sales reps earn very handsome wages.

    I have been working at Cintas full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great but expensive benefits, 4 day workweek, you are left alone if you do your job, depending on the route pretty easy hours

    Cons

    High pressure sales tactics. Most management out for there own bonuses. Always feel like I have to protect customers from the company. Sales reps will pull sketchy stuff and leave you to clean up the mess.

    Advice to Management

    More restrictions on sales reps. Less focus on shoving new products on customers and more concentration on having current products to service correctly. More accountability from management. Do not ask me to do something that you would never do

    I have been working at Cintas full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You get what you put in. Good pay if you are willing to work hard, a lot of different career paths within Cintas for those that excel. Management wants you to climb the ladder and will Work with you to reach those goals.

    Cons

    Large companies tend to make policies and procedures that cater to the least common denominator. If one person on the team struggles, even those that are surpassing goals have meetings about meetings to ensure the weakest link doesn’t break. Reminiscent of no child left behind. Those that work hard and consistently surpass goals can lose productivity.

    Advice to Management

    Have more individualized plans for struggling partners (employees). More time in the field and less time in the office will dramatically improve pipeline development and sales.

    Pros

    Solid and stable company, decent culture, always busy

    Cons

    Company leans hard on hourly employees, asks them to do more with less. The employees that want to do more are discouraged by strict overtime policy enforcement.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in the future, increase staff at entry level before the needs of the business dictate it as a necessity, which practically forces you to hire the less than optimal candidate.
