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.

Data Entry (Former Employee), Langley, BC – March 31, 2014
Cons: low pay, bad management, don't care for well-being of employees just that their job gets done
The management is horrible and unable to deal with in-house issues. I worked above and beyond what was asked for me and when given a promotion they waited two months and I never saw the 'promotion'. Was being bullied and walked all over and HR and management did nothing. They lost a good worker who loved their job even though the pay was bad.
SERVICE SALES MANAGER (Former Employee), Calgary, AB – January 13, 2014
Pros: training available, excellent people in general
Cons: lack of work/life balance. middle management questionable ethics.
Cintas was very good to me on a variety of levels, with the opportunity at times to learn valuable skills from a talented pool of leaders and colleagues. Unfortunately over time, this talent pool was eroded and replaced with individuals who did not embody the spirit of how Cintas says they want to do business, or treat their employees.
There is an – more... arrogance to middle management, in that they are unable or unwilling to adapt to market conditions. They also project a bonus cheque first, people second attitude.
Hardest part of the job is the complete disregard for work-life balance of middle management. They model and impose this on everyone.
Greatest part of the job is the quality of people that Cintas attracts via strong recruiting and an excellent track record in other markets. I only hope that things improve locally before more of these great folks move on to companies that value them beyond tools to improve middle managements bonus cheques. – less

Procurement & Inventory / Production Supervisor (Former Employee), Calgary, AB – January 18, 2013
Cons: low pay
Each day was a series of supervised employee functions, payroll, inventory, vendor relations, and daily problem solving.
Learning to be available at all times for any type of situation to arise, and be quick to resolve the situation long term was the most challenging part of the position.
Meeting daily deadlines while maintaining a positive employee – more... moral was a daily challenge. Although, when we did succeed in meeting the heavy production deadlines and I still saw smiling faces at the end of the day - this was the most rewarding part of the position. – less
