    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    I applied online and got a call from recruiter for an initial 45-minute google hangout interview in which I was required to share my code. The interview was good and the interviewer made me feel comfortable.

    Interview Questions
    • Two coding questions were asked:
      1. Given an array, write a function to return true if the sum of any two numbers in the array is zero.
      2. Implement Bubble Sort

      Test cases and complexity were asked for the first coding question.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a day - interviewed at Minted.

    Interview Details

    Got referred by an employee. Had a phone screen and technical interview, then an on-site with 5 of their software engineers. They asked about two questions each, ranging from the usual coding questions to brain teasers to language trivia. All in all very pleasant. Their space is very nice.

    User Experience Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Minted.

    Interview Details

    After a brief & pleasant standard screening call, I was brought in for 3 45-minute 1:1 interviews with representatives from design, product management and engineering. The final round of interviews included a 15-minute presentation of a design challenge to a panel of executives and others. As I progressed, too many red flags surfaced (messy & chaotic environment, over-reaching CEO, odd personalities, and a mandatory 'design challenge' that could be mistaken for unpaid consulting) so I dropped out before moving to the final round.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oakland, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Minted in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    When I was interviewed, I had to take a test with questions about my knowledge of design and the Adobe software, and I had to write about how I would deal with certain work situations (like if I had a problem with a coworker for example.) Another part of the interview process was reviewing their cards and point out what the mistakes were and what I would fix.

    Interview Questions
    • The most unexpected question was having to write about my past job experiences and how I dealt with difficult customers and problems with colleagues. And it was difficult because I couldn't think of any, I usually get along with most people   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Minted in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was reached out by their in house recruiter, told that there were two slightly different roles that I may try out for. I had a phone interview soon after, then I've never heard back again. There was not even a rejection email. I understand that they chose not to proceed forward with me, but complete silence was unexpected, unprofessional and rude.

    Management Position Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  San Francisco, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Minted.

    Interview Details

    My main beef during Minted's interview process was around communication with their recruiter Yuichi. To inform me that Minted chose another candidate, he emailed me 2 sentences essentially saying they chose someone else and good luck. I have no issue with that email.

    What would keep me from working at Minted in the future, or working with this particular recruiter, is that I wrote him back asking for super brief feedback from someone at Minted. Am I wrong to ask for this after spending over 5 hours and an afternoon off from work to let them interview me as a potential solution to their needs? I was very curious for feedback as one interviewer told me in the interview he/she'd give me the job right then if it were up to him/her. After a week I sent another email requesting basic feedback. No response. Oh well.

    The actual interviews at Minted were run well enough. Interviewers asked intelligent questions, allowing me to demonstrate my strengths and weaknesses through example. Interview questions heavily targeted the position in question. Fit questions only filled the first 5 minute small talk. Also, they did a nice job of filling in holes in the position description.

    I applied online - interviewed at Minted.

    Interview Details

    Nice HR staff, but don't expect long friendships. Seemed like it was a high turnover job when I came in for the interview, and I was looking at 30+ trainee hires prior to my hire. Great job for getting quick at design, production auditing, etc. Design associates need to understand typography at its most basic (don't worry if you don't know what "humanist fonts" are). You are mostly making high end luxury goods for people that can afford fancy envelopes.
