    Pros

    A moajority of Cintas employees at the corp office have more than 10-15 years with the company. You don't often see a majority of employees with a ten-year that high. The corprate culture places family values higher than professional requirements.

    Cintas is also growing and approaching a new level of expansion into Europe and Asia. The company has the personal culture of a smaller company, but the size and benefits of a 4+ Billion dollar company.

    Cons

    There is normally a corporate policy on everything, including eating at your desk. Although this helps make the rules very clear, it is sometimes overkill.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, and let's get into Europe and Asia!

    Pros

    Career development and growth potential they provide a great platform for you to hone your skills. Cintas is a strong company that rewards partners based on performance and not tenure. The future is bright despite the slow economy, that will eventually turn around. Cintas is a cash company and will always be driven by its customers and its ability to make profits by exceeding customers expectations. When Cintas took over our company we saw a dramatic improvement and structure that helped all the partners excel beyond what they thought was possible I could not be happier about my choice to work for Cintas.

    Cons

    The amount of hours you will put in. If you are a non stop go getter you will never take time off unless you are made to by management.

    Advice to Management

    Great place to work and grow.

    Pros

    Career Advancement opportunities for those that want to work hard.

    Cons

    You have to pay the price to be great, which means sometimes way more than 40+ a week. Have to adapt to situations on the fly.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in R&D and technology.

    Pros

    You get back what you put in. If you care about your performance and desire the responsibility that may greatly affect many aspects of the business Cintas is for you. You are your own manger in many respects & with that comes the expectation that you will achieve the goals necessary to grow your business and greatly increase the long term value of the company. Working with the customers & helping your partners achieve their goals is a hallmark of what is great about being a manager @ Cintas.

    Cons

    Work/life balance but to be great many hours have to be put in & hard work is necessary.

    Advice to Management

    Stay true to the foundations of our business. Niche markets should not comprise the foundation for the years business plan. We're great at floor mats, towels, the rental & purchase of uniforms. Stay committed to this and our long term value will be sure to grow.

    Pros

    Cintas has great career advancement opportunities. Competitive compensation, especially for management is a very strong appeal to joining this company. perks, such as car packages, cell phone allowances, and company credit cards for expense accounts are a definite plus. Strong history of growth(38+years). Positive environment and high morale are a consistent feature at each location. Promotions and recognition are given based on proven performance. There is no weight placed on seniority, or other potential limitations. If you a motivated and hard-working, this is the career company for you.

    Cons

    Tough work/life balance: long hours necessary/expected from managers(average 55+hrs/week). Work days begin no later than 7am and close of business at 5pm. Relatively low PTO, must be employed 5yrs to earn over 2 weeks vacation.

    Advice to Management

    Consider reviewing benefits package to include some additional PTO opportunities or the inclusion of more nationally-recognized holidays.

    Pros

    Cintas is not only an employer, but a home for me. Everyday, I talk to a partner, I feel like I'm talking to famiily. We are depended on by so many types of industries and have had 38 years of un-interuppted growth! How awesome is that for business and for ourselves? I started with Cintas as an intern my senior year of college, and Cintas has became my true passion due to the experience I have received an the overall quality management that has helped to form me by teaching me and building the skills I had already acquired. Someone would be crazy not to join Cintas. Cintas is an OPPORTUNITY, and I work for the best CORPORATION in the world. People may say as posted earlier, Cintas is cheap, blah blah, but you know what, we are SPARTAN, and we concentrate on acting with competitive urgency for our customers rathar than exceeding funds for trips and gifts for those that we can simply make so happy by providing them our convenient and excellent product and service. That's what Cintas is about. They take care of their partners 110% and it's obvious that we have been succeeding this long for all the right reasons :)

    Cons

    I do not have any con's, but advice would be that at Cintas, it can be very time consuming because our goal is to act with competitive urgency with everything. You have to be able to have excellent time management skills so that you can seperate the difference and have a work and life balance. This will make you happy with your career and life.

    Advice to Management

    I would say thank you because you have constantly kept providing with us younger professionals and others with the quality information and education to help us always succeed above any other company!
