Hardest part of the job is the heat no ac in one of the locations. I had a shift that I was finished mid afternoon so that was nice. I was a garment loader so I would load trucks and cages as well as mat rolling.

Productive and fun workplace with a great team and high moral standards.

What is the best part of working at the company?Cintas is an excellent company to work for. Their core values are what set them apart from other employers. You will feel secure in your job and safe to be yourself. Cintas has so many unbelievable perks and their benefits and RRSP programs are fantastic.What is the most stressful part about working at the company?Some of the partners more specifically management team do not follow the core values set out and that can cause unwanted conflict and stress.What is the work environment and culture like at the company?the work environment is amazing for the most part. The partners all work together and get rewarded for hard work with plenty of incentives. The culture is wonderful as well for the most part they have high moral standards and truly believe in team work.What is a typical day like for you at the company?A typical day at the company for me was pretty good. Greeted by everyone usually with a smile and good morning. Work load is fairly busy so the days go by fast.

Absolutely horrible

What is the best part of working at the company?The benefits do not over weigh the downside. You are expected to do multiple jobs besides the one you signed a contract todo, because they are always short staffed. There is no accountability for employees who have been there a couple of years. Management also changes way too frequently. What is the most stressful part about working at the company?Having to work multiple positions that you weren’t contracted todo. What is a typical day like for you at the company?Repetitive, constantly having to make up for the lack of work other employees aren’t doing

Never got paid for the try out day.

Seemed like a good opportunity, I just decided to take another job instead. The people were friendly, the managers were all a pleasure to meet, my only upset is that I did the try out work day and it’s been 2 months and I still haven’t been paid for it.


Nice people, good pay


Never got paid for my try out day

Revolving door

Cintas values its shareholders over everything. There is constant turnover. Their price structure for products is absurd and they will raise prices annually. Constantly putting out fires. The pay isn't worth the stress that comes along with the job.

Great training good people

Uniform outside sales high expectations for high results. Opportunity to do well as comp plan lends itself to achievers. High turn over in sales team. Training program fantastic and will arm you for future sales jobs.

Stressful, fast-paced, and uncared for.

This is a physically demanding job. Expect overtime because the work load is unrealistic for any human being. The warehouse is understaffed but they do not hire any more people, then increase work loads expecting them to be done in the same manner of time. The warehouse is extremely disorganized and messy making it much harder to work efficiently. As well as all the broken tools and machinery you will be using. Express your concerns and be prepared to blown off, made to feel that these are not important matters, or made to feel that your concerns are heard but then do nothing about it. Working 2pm-1230am Monday - Thursday makes it hard to balance life outside of work. Especially when they turn your 10.5h shift into 13-14h without the proper breaks given. This company will tell you that it cares about you but their actions do not match their words. It’s a large corporate company who only cares about money. Simple as that. You will be another cog in the machine.

Amazing environment

This is a great place to work. Every day I feel like I am a part of something and they really know how to make us feed appreciated.Management is great- they GM give great feedback and listen to/deal with employee concerns.


Friendly coworkers, great management, good hours


Piece rate can be competitive, but if you have a strong work ethic it’s not an issue

Culture d’entreprise malsaine

Compagnie axé seulement sur le succès, tout en négligeant le bien-être des employés.


Pas grand chose de positif


Pause courte, environnement toxique

Environnement stressant où on ne tiens pas compte du bien être des employés

Le manque d’empathie de la part des cadres supérieurs et le manque de professionnalisme, ainsi que de respect.


Le tout de la job est negatif

Weird cult-like growth culture. It's all about sell, sell, sell.Even if the customer doesn't need the product or can even afford a little bump in they're invoice. Just get more sakes, more volume, more products out there.

Rules not apply for everyone lots of favouritism

You need to be fast at hanging clothes they spect you to hang 1756 shirts or coats and 1363 pants or heavy coveralls in an 8 hour shift very frustrating Not fun to work at all, if you don’t get your numbers they will let you go this job sounds very easy but is not is more stressful than fun

Not worth the time.

Completely undervalued as an employee. Not worth the time. Management is extremely poor and Human Resources is no help at all. Hours weren’t bad and the team lead was extraordinary.


10 hour shifts


Poor management

Terrible management

One of worst jobs I have ever hard where management is always contradicting themself and never being accountable often passing the buck. During covid management stayed in their office while staff were on the front line forced to work trying to get a sale just to make a pay cheque to pay bills wondering if it was good enough to have a job the next day.One thing I've learned is mental health and family means nothing to them as many of my coworkers suffered from it during the same time period with lack of support and communication from upper management who again had no heart but greed on their mind. Pure example of how the mighty dollar and greed can change people. As a safety company they should provide body armor for all the back stabbing that's done on a daily bases.




No support

Challenging but Rewarding

After a full year in sales it’s clear that it is what you make of it. I made a 23k bonus in my 4th quarter then let my foot off the gas and made half that. No excuse mentality and strong company culture has helped me grow as a person. It can be stressful at times but it’s all how you manage your work

Decent short term job

Unethical company. Pays decent enough, take the job while you find another. Constantly short on products you are supposed to deliver, everyone will pretend to be surprised about this even though it happens every week.

Decent work place. Bad hours and raise system is broken in companies favour

This job is great for people that enjoy factory work. Raises are not much of thing. Recognition isnt the best by management but other employees around the building will notice your work and appreciate you. Often asked to due multiple jobs at once. Problem solving is your best tool because often the people you may ask wont have the right answers.


Fun people. Exercise. Benefits. HR is great.


Pay. Lack of communication. Evening shift. Double up. Limited overtime unless way behind.

Great company overall

This is not an easy job. However, there are many who are willing to put in the work and follow what management instructs to do and be wildly successful.

Productive and great place to work

I have the best manager, she is understanding and is always there to help. I love my job and it is very satisfying work. My coworkers are like a second family to me. Amazing to work with. The only downside I can say is raises are very small. The most you can get is 50 cents nothing more than that. I wish they would bring the yearly raises up to at least a dollar.
