If you believe this I have a bridge in Brooklyn you might be interested in. They will close the Hanover facility by year-end. This is only a ploy to avoid paying unemployment benefits to anyone who chooses not to drive to York.

Not all of the information in this article is 100% true.
The employee were told durning a pre shift meeeting that the Hanover plant was not going to be a plant anymore & that while the changes were going to happen - only 10 - 12 production parnters would be working in hanover. The rest of them would either transfer to York or nolonger have jobs

Cintas always wants to come across as taking care of their employees (partners). Just the opposite is true - they build their company on the backs of the workers. Low pay, no raises, no supervision at all or, at best, unqualified supervision. All they care about is side stepping any unemployment responsibilities.

This explains why their service charge just went up over $4 a week! And they said it was because of fuel! I thought that kind of hike was a little ridiculous for fuel but now I see why! I hope they spend a little money on training the billing department too - these guys are a nightmare to work with!

Let's look at reality. The workers in Hanover are not being fired, they are simply moving. Ask a few thousand auto workers in Detroit or the 300-plus workers at Harley if they would rather move the job a few miles up the road or deal with the lay offs that thay had handed to them. What do you think the answer would be?

The information is this article is a lie. Production shut down at the Hanover Plant and most people were let go or should I say they found a way to get rid of them or intimidate them into signing resignations. The Plant Manager was given a promotion for no apparent reason to the York Plant in the mean time he found a way to get his pet, named Dennis, promoted to Plant Manager. This guy is an egotistical dooshbag. The man is so unprofessional that he curses at his employees and attempts to intimidate them all the time. He promotes an unprofessional environment when he downplays the contributions of women but pats guys on the back when they don't do anything at all just to make his pathetic point. He even goes as far as to shoot snot rockets out of his nose in front of employees. You kiss your mommy with that mouth? I think he abused small animals as a kid or mommy and daddy didn't love him enough or something that he feels the need to always take it out on others. Karma will come back on him for the unporfessional way he treats people. Why a company would promote someone who is clearly a liability waiting to happen is beyond me. It would seem that they only way you get any respect in this place is if you are a former military man, have the brain of a village idiot and the integrity of theif. Hard work does not pay off Cintas. Cintas = Corupt, Ignorant, Nonintelligent, Totalitarian, Arrogant, Simpltons. Stay away from this place, unless you like snot rockets and getting treated like dirty by an idiot who has no busniess being in charge.

Karma Coming for Doug

We were the unlucky s.o.b.'s who aquired Doug from Hanover and you hit the nail on the head. I worked with Dennis also and he almost lost me a 17 location account due to his laziness. I was a SM when he was the almighty GM of Hanover and our customer had to beg me not to allow Dennis to manage over his account. I couldn't do a thing about it due to Dennis being promoted to GM of Hanover and his "master" Doug could care less. You know how it is in the "Good Ole Boys Club".

Dennis is a flea on the dirty dog. Dirty dog being Doug. Sexist Much? EVERY single one of my peers discussed with me his harrassment. 2 of them urged me to aquire a lawyer because Doug all but drop-kicked me from my position. It took a REAL BIG man to bully and push around a single mom with very few options. He even took my job right from under me. As soon as I left his office from one of his abussive bashings, I went straight for Deb's office (HR Mngr) I knew what he said and was doing had to be wrong. But you know politics. He brought his HR Manager with him from Hanover to York. She simply said he was well in his right to get rid of me. She said he can get rid of anybody he wants for no reason at all. She then said that at least I could "maybe" collect unemployment compensation. I'm a single mom, I can't sue and feed my two kids hope. I NEEDED A JOB!!!

Boy, Doug really should watch out for Karma, having an unappreciated wife and two daughters.(You should hear the sexist, rude, and revolting comments he mades about his wife...poor woman) He may not feel the direct pain of having a man make him feel helpless, but I'm sure he's going to have to sit by and watch some "man" (I use that term loosely) do this to one of his daughters and wonder why...Well, Doug, what goes around comes around...and worse!!!
