    Interview

    I was brought in for several days of interviews and met with people from across the organization. It was well-coordinated and a pleasant experience. When applying for analytics or engineering positions there are some exercises candidates are put through to test their problem solving approaches. I did the same with a creative exercise.

    Interview

    Since I was older than most of the folks I was going to be working with, the hiring manager had older software QA engineers from other groups interview me. It was a 6 hour in-person interview and prior to that several phone interviews with HR and the hiring manager.

    Interview Questions

    • Analysis of several case studies. What I would test, what assumptions I made, etc... They even took the scrap paper that I was writing to figure out the problems   Answer Question

    Software Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Vistaprint in March 2014.

    Interview

    I met campus recruiters through the career fair, and then applied through the Jobs and Internships Board for my university. Then they came to campus a week or two afterwards to do on campus interviews. The interview was divided into two parts: the first part was about OOP, and the second part was a simple coding problem. I got a call from them two days afterwards with an offer, and they gave me two weeks to think about it. After I accepted the offer, they offered an office visit. The campus recruiting people are awesome!

    Interview Questions

    • How would you design an elevator? (Create a UML diagram too)   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I didn't really negotiate, it was for an internship.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Interview

    I ended up applying late, but this process was still the best of all the internships I"ve interviewed for. I submitted my resume on a Tuesday, got a call back on Wednesday, set up interviews for Thursday morning, and had the offer by Thursday afternoon. The campus recruiting office is the BEST - very helpful, informative, nice, etc. I did the actual interviews via the phone, and did coding over a collaboration coding tool (via the internet) and over google docs. The interviewers were really nice and helpful, and I got a good vibe from them. Interview questions were unsurprising and kinda standard. 1.) OOP design question (Design an elevator system, and they gave me some scenarios to consider while building). Be prepped to do a UML diagram. 2.) Pretty simple geometry algorithm question that was sort of like your classic box-packing problem. You shouldn't need to prep too much for this one... it's really easy to overthink though, so be wary of that.

    Interview Questions

    • The elevator design was challenging just because there is no right answer. The most important thing there is to clearly explain why you're doing what you're doing.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I'm an intern. I was surprised at how high it was that I didn't think fast enough to start negotiating.

    Senior CopyWriter Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Vistaprint (Lexington, MA) in June 2010.

    Interview

    Vistaprint has an extensive interview process. By meeting with multiple people who you will be working with, the company builds consensus -- before you start -- about whether you have the skills and personality to be a good fit. Back-to-back interviews can be grueling, so be well rested and think through the many dimensions of your work and people skills before you arrive. The first day I interviewed (for about six hours), there was no offer of the bathroom or snacks. On the second day of interviews (another six hours), I spoke up and asked for quick breaks as I needed them. Now, when people come in for long interviews, they are given snack packs...which is great.

    Interview Questions

    • I don't remember any difficult or unexpected questions. Each interview was filled with expected questions from each stakeholder.   Answer Question
