Went through 5 interviews and a ride along. Everyone seemed great and I thought I had the job. I'm more than qualified for the position but if they don't like the way you look or your personality you won't get an offer. They never even responded to me after after getting together to make decision. They said they would contact me in 2 days. 2 weeks later and 2 emails and I received an email saying I wasn't getting a job offer. Really bummed.

Cintas has a policy of meticulous interview process. It is designed to weed out those who slip between the cracks. Interview for a sales representative usually consist of: phone interview with recruiter, face to face interview with Sales Manager, ride along with sales rep, face to face interview with General Manager, face to face interview with Sales Director, and lastly a face to face interview with the Vice President of Sales. Once all interviews are complete the leadership team will make a decision as to whether you get hired or not. You will only get the job if every individual in the interview process can agree that you would be a good fit for the organization, region, and the team. Typical process can take anyone from 3-6 months. Internal candidates/employee referrals may move through quicker and are usually considered over external applicants.

Report answer

There are 5 interviews. First you'll be contacted through email for a phone interview. He will either schedule you for an interview then or email you when he knows their availability at the office. Then you'll go interview with a supervisor at a home location. If he likes you he will schedule you for a route ride. Yes you will be in a uniform riding with someone from the company an entire shift, when you get back you will see the supervisor you interviewed with, if the person you rode with likes you, they will tell him &he will schedule you to meet with his manager. If he likes you you'll meet the general manager &if she likes you they will send you a link for your references, if all your references (preferably mangers) give you good reviews they will call &offer you a job. Took me a month but I got it.
