Forklift Operator (Current Employee), Manassas, VA – June 22, 2014
Cons: hour's the pay slow support to fix issues
Its a decent Job to grow at and find great benefits but I believe the branch I was in just wasn't were I fit in. Cintas biggest flaw is the time they take to do anything from getting something as equipment fixed too finding employees.
Garment Sorter (Former Employee), Indianapolis, IN – August 11, 2014
Pros: free lunch, holiday dinners, & company education
Cons: income for the labor
A typical workday consisted of Sorts and updates. Seal and label press. Also manual hang line sort. I learned a lot about different cultures and that this company prides themselves in diversity. Management was very understanding and always open for questioning and any work related assistance. The most enjoyable part of this job was the diversity and – more... unity. – less
pretty business, ongoing calls coming in. i love the workers and environment , its a pretty laid back company and always have someone around to listen and help you when you need help. We always have recognition and they acknowledge your work.
Great Experience, Training was OK, and Office Culture was AWFUL
Outside Sales Rep (Former Employee), Richmond, VA – August 3, 2014
Pros: great sales experience, training, and pay is good not great.
Cons: work culture, micromanagement, micromanagement!
A typical day at work as an outside sales rep. at Cintas is tons of cold calling and presenting. The Monday/Wednesday phone blocks are AWFUL and not needed to be successful in sales in any industry! The work culture at the Chester, VA Cintas location sucks at best. The GM has been there for ever so its his way or the highway. Overall you learn on the – more... fly as you go because the sales manager that hired me was young and not a great trainer. Sales and Operations don't get along and there is always inter-department fighting. Field time is great for experience, but overall I have not hated a job so much as this one! – less
Sales Service Rep (Current Employee), Houston, TX – July 31, 2014
Every morning I get up at around 4:30, get to work around 5, do my paper work, run my route and I'm usually home at 1:30. I'm off! . . . . That is until I get bombarded with phone call after phone call after phone call. Complaints complaints and complaints. Not from the customer but from management themselves. They are really big on saying "Its YOUR – more... route" that is true as long as they get to dictate how you run it. The plant partners are lazy and will sometimes not wash your clothes nor load it on your truck. The pay is good but not worth the headache management gives you. – less
Field Sales (Former Employee), charlotte, nc – July 22, 2014
Pros: guaranteed pay
Cons: little opportunity for job growth
The position was a outside sales route position and the routes were sometimes two hours drive from office. The manager persisted on having a hour meeting every morning and a hour meeting in the afternoon, which left very little time to complete route and ultimately effected commissions.

Service Sales Representative (Current Employee), Strongsville, OH – July 15, 2014
Pros: no micro-managing
Cons: advancement opportunities are almost non-existent
As a route driver, I don't have a boss with me on a daily basis. This means that I am not being micro-managed. I go about my business and get my job done, then go home. As long as I am taking care of duties, I don't hear much from my boss at all. If I do need my boss's help, he is always available.
