    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at Consolidated Graphics in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    First Interview: Questions were situational & behavioral. Very laid back and not too stressful. One question "How would you handle or approach working in an industry that is not glamorous with well known brands?" "Give me an example of a time when you had to make a big decision without the guidance of a supervisor."

    Turnover his constant at this company, and they have hiring quotas, but they won't hire someone who seems unintelligent. They look for sharp people who LIKE overtime - lots of it.

    Leadership Development Program Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Durham, NC
    Anonymous Employee in Durham, NC
    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Consolidated Graphics in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed first through my university, then was flown out to the Durham location after I expressed interest in relocating to North Carolina. The associates were very nice and when they picked me up from the airport and made me feel very comfortable and seemed excited that I was there. During the interview, the hiring managers seemed very disorganized in their questions and didn't have a clear path as to where the interview was supposed to go. They seemed very pleasant but had a hard time answering my questions about the company.

    Leadership Development Program Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Dallas, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Consolidated Graphics in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    The two recruiters I spoke with were very nice and helpful in the interview process. They were both still within the LDP phase themselves, but were very knowledgeable about the company, which conveyed to me the effectiveness of the LDP. The organizational culture seems relaxed and centered around teamwork, and made me feel valuable with the time and training they were willing to invest in me. Relevant work experience should be your most important consideration when it comes to working for consolidated graphics. Experience and hard work is definitely what i plan to get out of this job in order to be competitive in the future.

    Negotiation Details
    From what I've heard they don't negotiate on salary. The recruiter told me that they are basically paying for you to learn all about the commercial printing business from the ground up the first 3 years. I believe that once they feel like you've learned everything that is required in order to start making contributions to their company, thats when you should expect to realize some kind of raise and/or promotion.

    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Consolidated Graphics in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    I saw the CGX recruiters at a College Jobs Fair and wasn't at first interested because they seemed to be looking for hard labor. The next day I received a text message from them saying they were impressed and wanted to schedule an interview. I didn't reply then I received an email prompting me to go online and schedule an interview. I still didn't do that so a couple of weeks latter I got call from a recruiter asking me to come in for a 1:1 interview with a president and I said sure why not, got nothing to lose. The interview was pretty standard, just asked to tell a little bit about myself and mainly wanted to make sure that I understood that the first year of the program would be manual labor and that I wasn't intimidated by that. Halfway through the interview he invited me to come in for an on site interview at their plant next week.
