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

    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.

    Pros

    Flexible working schedule, good starting wages.

    Cons

    Poor opportunity to move up even with heavy management turnover. Management turnover creates problem with day to day business. Unnecessary meetings and micromanagement. AR department is completely useless which hurts commission ability.

    Pros

    The work hours are reasonable

    Cons

    They just bought G &K services out. Salary is the same but the benefits SUCK! No sick days 401K match is 20 cents to the dollar, company provided life insurance is only$10000. Health insurance premium is HIGH and has HIGH deductibles. This has been a BIG step backward for me!! Also hours were cut back to 32/week

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees and treat them better.

    Pros

    There are none, really. I wish I could say that it was a good job.

    Cons

    Management. Point System. PTO. No respect for partners. They pay some managers to do nothing, while shafting the partners that work hard.

    Advice to Management

    Too many chiefs and not enough indians. No respect for the welfare of partners. Managers stand around and talk all day. It's a modern-day plantation. Should be paid more for the conditions you work in.

    Pros

    4 day work week, Major Holidays off, Stock/401k options.

    Cons

    Great people in the wrong positions, lack of collaboration and communication between departments.

    Training could be improved, technology is lacking, turnover, lack of integrity with customers/partners!

    Not open to suggestions to improve the workplace and lack of team building with all departments.

    Sales could be awesome with the right training and insight from actual SSR's.

    Old plant a new plant is needed asap! Meetings are a joke. Pay tactics are disappointing.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the basics, train in a creative and efficient way, embrace technology to improve the workplace, have integrity with your partners/customers, etc.
