Office Manager (Former Employee) –  Fort Worth, TXDecember 10, 2018
Horrible- too many hours, not enough support, training or development. People would sell you out just to get ahead. Worst experience unfortunately. Which it could have been better.

the company was not good to work for. The management plays favorites and doesn't follow the rules for certain employees. I would not recommend working here.

Hard work with opportunities to grow
Various Roles (Former Employee) –  Minneapolis, MNDecember 9, 2018
When a Service Sales representative you have a great opportunity to grow a business within the work. Career advancement is not as great. You work out of a truck, and you service customers. Good for people starting out and can drive a truck.
Pros
On your own, able to construct your own business
Cons
Traffic and customer changes can make days long.

Barley paid the bills
Utility Worker (Former Employee) –  Westland, MIDecember 8, 2018
Worked there for 2 years. No job advancement, unless you suck up to management. Poor management skills, lack of communication between you and supervisors. 1st shift supervisor always hid away with production manager. They play favorites and make work harder for you if you have some type of disability. Small raises even if you work your hardest. Everything is disorganized.
Pros
Some nice people
Cons

Deep Cleaner (Former Employee) –  Everett, WADecember 7, 2018
I spent a month in the hiring process, went on a ride along, went in for multiple interviews, got uniform sizes, And got my CDL printed out and sent a picture of it, and for no reason I was dropped from the Hunter in process for no reason and not told why after asking multiple times. Seems like it would’ve been a good job too bad management sucks

Great If you can Sell
Service Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Westminster, CODecember 6, 2018
There is a serious break down in communication form upper management to SSR's. When i worked there my direct manager had never preformed my task. They hire people right out of college to become managers threw there programs that normal folks can't join. They recently have been hire folks form out side to fill these manager positions and do not promote form with in. Several 5 plus year employees have left due to poor management.
Pros
Good money if you can push and drive sales
Cons
very little trainning or support from higher ups

It was fast paced, competitive, and incentive. The management was overall good and the benefits were great.
Linen Bulk Folder (Former Employee) –  Clinton, NCDecember 5, 2018
A typical workday was fast paced and competitive. There was no time for slacking, it was hard work. The managers were good at their jobs and made sure things got done. I learned how to work in a more fast paced environment. The workplace was hot and everyone stood the majority of the day. Most employees were nice. The hardest part of the job was working against the clock. The most enjoyable part of the job was the friendly environment.

Conformance out ranks productivity and quality. Local inequity runs unchecked.
Industrial Maintenance Technician (Current Employee) –  Everett, WADecember 5, 2018
Tremendious turn over. 150%+ turn over of production management, supervisors, crew leads in 2 years. Strong "anti-union" and retaliation to employee discussions re: inequity and random altered policies. Good place to be in sales... terrible place to be on production crew. Even worse if you are stuck on second or third shift. Payroll errors are common and very slow at resolve. Self- insured and claim to be above state regulation and human rights. Many English challenged production workers are stuck at low pay with minimal increase and their potential of promotion is non-existent... even demotion and pay cuts regardless to fact many of these are very productive, long term, and loyal employees. Jobs and special classifications are made for those that best conform as local upper management appoints best paying jobs with addition (special) benefits. Sales and office seemingly has unlimited budget (annual office remodel for "professional appearance") where as production and maintenance is on tight budget causing needed repairs to be frequently held off from mid month to after next month's budget is released... Still unrealistic pressure from sales and service for expedited product turn over (frequently leading to high turn over of hard working production, receiving, and repair staff).
Pros
Decent benefit package, frequent meals/treats provided (varing greatly by department and shift), distant corporate support, strong safety and ergonomic commitment
Cons
Inequity and favoritism displayed continually throughout all levels of management and supervisors

Terrible work/Life balance
Health and Safety Specialist (Former Employee) –  Knoxville, TNDecember 5, 2018
Pushed to work every weekend. More than one person can schedule you. Because of this you were doing good to get a full 4 hours of sleep at night before you had to be on the road again. Terrible management. They don’t care that you work 60+ hours in a salary position. You can’t get approved to take time off to go to the doctor. Just terrible all around.

The company is very dedicated to its spartan approach. There is nothing exciting about the office but the people are great and the benefits are good. Great place to get experience!

Good beginning place - great training
Outside Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Pittsburgh, PADecember 4, 2018
Cintas was a great first company to work for. The sales training they put you through is top notch. However, as a facility service rep, we are kind of pushed to the side. Uniform Reps and MDR get better treatment. The company tries to make you feel special with the "car package", which is where they pay for your car, insurance and gas. This, however, doesn't kick in until you get a territory (and they don't tell you that right away). It also doesn't make up for the very low base salary they start you at. The commissions don't pay out that much money because it is all based on multipliers and the things people buy the most are the lowest multipliers. The only real way to make decent money is by hitting the bonuses but they set the bar extremely high and most reps don't hit the bonus levels.
Pros
Car Package. Salary +Commission + Bonuses
Cons
No work life balance, unrealistic goals, forgotten

Poor managed cut throat employer
Fire Service Technician (Former Employee) –  Lenexa, KSDecember 3, 2018
I've never been surrounded by more unorganized, dishonest, immoral group of office people in my life. Over worked and underpaid with impossible financial incentives. Communication is awful, there's never clarity on anything. 50% of the time you're trying to get ahold of costumers by just showing up at their door or calling/ harassing them because they don't want to use Cintas. You never know what you're getting paid for and why your checks are always different and inconsistent. They play both sides of the fence, whichever serves them necessary in the moment. Probably one of the most frustrating jobs I've ever had because if people knew what they were actually doing and did their jobs it would probably be a great job. But this location couldn't be further from that.
Pros
Great benefits
