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

    Pros

    Zero supervision, zero goals to meet, zero productivity

    Cons

    Zero management, Zero talent, Zero motivation within Cintas Southeastern safety and ppe division. The company has a horrible reputation.

    Advice to Management

    Cintas needs to clean house in this region's safety division. The potential for the market is HUGE. They don't have any employees willing to work to develop it.

    Pros

    Benefits, bonuses, coworkers, multiple locations to transfer to

    Cons

    4 day work week does not mean it's just 4 10hour days, 5'30am meetings, everything is about numbers here

    Advice to Management

    Be open to change, overstaff and cut the bad employees, don't make excuses for your failures, everything starts at the top.

    Pros

    Global, Huge Growth Potential, Amazing job security, very flexible with outside issues and working with personal schedules (location specific), cross training in different departments.

    Average pay, not amazingly high or low

    We do extremely well keeping current with the market and paying our hourly partners competitively. We do a terrible job with ensuring the same thing happens with middle management.
