Cintas Corporation Named to Victory Media’s 2017 Military Friendly® Employers List

(NASDAQ: CTAS) announced today that it has earned the
2017 Military Friendly® Employer designation by Victory Media, publisher
of G.I. Jobs®, STEM JobsSM, and Military Spouse. First
published in 2003, Military Friendly® Employers is the most
comprehensive, powerful resource for veterans today. Each year, the list
of Military Friendly® Employers is provided to service members and their
families, helping them discover the best post-military career
opportunities available.

Cintas is committed to hiring military talent, knowing first-hand that
recruiting veterans and military spouses is not only the “right thing to
do,” but the right thing for business. “We’re proud to be recognized as
a Military Friendly Employer for the 12th consecutive year.
Our internal military program dates back to the early 90s when Cintas
founder, Dick Farmer (a US Marine Veteran), ordered the creation of a
program that sourced talent from the ranks of the Armed Forces,” said
Matt Disher, Cintas Military Recruiting Program Manager and Marine
Veteran. “Today, we’ve expanded these recruitment programs to include
post-hire development and mentorship among other things, but the value
of utilizing military-experienced men and women is still as important as
it was decades ago when we the program started.”

“Companies that have earned the 2017 Military Friendly® Employer
designation have exceptionally strong hiring programs and meaningful
jobs for transitioning service members, veterans and spouses,” said
Daniel Nichols, a Navy Reserve veteran and Chief Product Officer at
Victory Media. “Our Military Friendly® Employers have moved beyond
answering ‘why hire military?’ They are truly aligning their jobs and
recruiting efforts with Military Friendly® Schools to translate military
competencies into civilian careers.”

Cintas will be showcased along with other 2017 Military Friendly®
Employers in the December issue of G.I. Jobs® magazine, the January 2017
issue of Military Spouse Magazine, and on

Companies and organizations earning the Military Friendly® Employer
designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses
from Victory Media’s proprietary survey. More than 200 companies
participated in the Military Friendly® Employers portion of the 2017
Military Friendly® Companies survey. For more on the assessment process,
