Absolutely ridiculous. You'd think they're preparing to hire on a $150k/year employee. FIVE INTERVIEWS before I got the job. Then they make your references fill out a survey about you and then there is a background check and drug test
Care more about your employees. I have never worked somewhere where every coworker I’ve interacted with truly hates their job, their boss, the company, their customers-how is that a formula to provide good customer service?! Also provide a safe place to bring up inner office conflicts or HR issues. If you go to your manager with a concern they blow it off and take absolutely no action to fix it. If you go to HR you immediately are considered a snitch by the entire company, and even though you were wronged by another you end up being the one in the wrong. Offer better compensation, or you will lose the best of your employees-ESPECIALLY since managers do not even ask about your career goals. If you’re good at your position they will do everything they can to keep you in that position, at that pay rate, for as long as possible. The selfishness of this company is staggering.
Long process, all FIVE INTERVIEWS consisting of cheesy "tell me about a time when" interview questions, reference check, background check, and drug screening
Besides the management the environment isn't bad. It's industrial you will get hot or cold depending on weather. Get used to it pull up the big boy pants and go to work.
How long does it take to get hired from start to finish at Cintas? What are the steps along the way?
I did my first interview over the phone. A week later I had my second interview, which was face to face. I was asked to come in the following week to do a job fit. After my 8 hour shift I had my 3rd interview. Three days later, I had my 4th interview. I was extended an offer for a job, pending my job references. I gave them 3 job references to contact. After a week, I was called to tell me that they could not get a hold of any of my references. They asked me to call later that day with 3 more job references. I called 15 times in 2 days before I got a live body on the phone. I proceeded to give them 3 more references to contact. Another week passed and I got another call, saying they could not contact my job references. I asked how that was even possible? They now had 6 job references to contact. It's beyond me how they could not reach at least 3 if the 6. I got a call again the next day, saying one of my job references needed my social security number to look up my job info. (This was for a very large company). They knew I had worked there, but didn't know my job specifics without my social security number. I gave them my number. Still feeling hopeful. I got a call 5 hours later saying they were going with another candidate. I asked about my references and again got the same answer as the previous weeks. I said you called for my social security number to get further details from a job reference. She said we got ahold of them for first time after trying for 3 weeks, but we didn't a response the second time we called. My job references are excellent. I still talk to all of the job references I gave for them to contact. After talking to all 6 of them. I was informed no one ever called them for job references. When I called to asked about my pay for working the 8 hour shift I was told it should be coming soon and that it is a long process to get paid. I got paid a month after I did my job fit. I put a lot of time into driving back and forth for interviews and to do a job fit. I feel the process is long and a total waste of time. To be honest I'm kind of glad I didn't get the job.The process was over a month and I still would have had to have a back ground check done, and God only knows how long that would have taken.
Do a mass hiring and maybe hire helpers for the more heavy routes but that's just for starters its alot that needs to be done to see a better outcome
