    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Lexington, MA
    Anonymous Employee in Lexington, MA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Vistaprint in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    Recently worked with a corporate recruiter hiring in the very earliest phase of interviewing.

    The recruiter did his homework, was very thorough, and empathetically understood my position, current position, commute, and personality, like no other that I've ever communicated with in the last 22 years.

    I am looking but not ready technically to handle myself in a rigorous interviewing process so we both decided to wait some time for me to come up to speed.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Vistaprint.

    Interview Details

    Internal reference, but excessive interview process relative to the position and salary. I'm not sure the people interviewing really know what they want or at least don't seem to clearly articulate the context of their questions and concerns.

    Senior Systems Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lexington, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lexington, MA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Vistaprint in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Vistaprint has a fairly thorough yet quick interviewing process. First, you get a call from the recruiter to discuss which job opportunities are available. Next, you speak with the hiring manager in a phone interview. The last step is a onsite interview with the hiring manager and the few other people that you would be working with.

    Interview Questions
    • The technical questions are general sysadmin type questions. An admin with at least 2 years experience should be able to answer them no problem. The interviews are interactive so there is a lot of whiteboard demonstrations.   Answer Question

    2) DBMS definitions questions. Then he will give a printed database design and ask queries to write on board based on that DB model.
    Second round was QA methodologies kind of questions.
    Third round was problem solving
    Lunch
    4th round was with QA manager, he would ask behavioral and past experience questions
    HR will come back and do wrap up.

    Marketing Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Lexington, MA
    Anonymous Employee in Lexington, MA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Vistaprint in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I started with an on campus interview. It was pretty relaxed with standard behavioral questions. I then was invited to their Lexington office for a final round interview that went from 8 A.M. to 4 P.M.. It consisted of 3 interviews. One behavioral and 2 case studies. The rest of the time was filled with information sessions, a tour of the office, and an office happy hour at the end of the day. It was very informative, but it was a LONG day. They made their decisions quickly and even took the time to call me to tell me that I did not receive an offer. Overall I was impressed with the thought they put into the whole process.

    Senior QA Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Lexington, MA
    Anonymous Employee in Lexington, MA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Vistaprint in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Recruiter was really supportive from beginning till end but it all worth nothing. They have 1 phone interview then onsite round which would be like whole day activity. Interview consisted of behavioral, logical, just scenario based seeking leadership qualities and one technical. Basically they would engage your for whole day with various anonymous rounds)
    They have one developer to take your technical round who will usually ask database question and simple query and one simple coding question-level of question is too low. if you know more than developer then you are wrong because he did not understand what you tried to explain. He asked me to implement database and I designed database using one of most popular data model which helps improving performance for Big data. Since developer did not had any knowledge about big data, data modelling, star schema..so he kept asking me importance of fact table which was frustrating.
    I already had an offer which was way more than what Vistaprint could afford so they came back with silly feedback that developer didn't see what he was looking for which means my candidacy was totally dependent on single interviewer(that Developer who had shallow knowledge) and rest of the rounds were useless and just a waste of time. Out of 6 rounds which all went well from my side, I was told only technical round mattered .
    So Unprofessional..bad interview experience.They interview level is easy but its all adhoc and random. some of the interviewer might not show up so juts random unprepared employee would be send in to kill your time
