Inmar – Why Work For Us?

undefined

Do work and play really need to be separate? We don't think so.

 

Whether at our LEED platinum-certified headquarters or our locations across the U.S., Canada and Mexico, the Inmar associate experience nurtures the whole person through a flexible, high-energy work environment with opportunities to learn, network, socialize and serve our communities.

There’s no denying - we’re a big company: 4000+ associates strong, locations across North America and a client list that reads like a Who’s Who of both large international and boutique companies. But, we haven’t let go of the small-company agility that enables associates in any role to impact the business, take on new challenges and drive change in big ways.

Whatever your role, as an Inmar associate, you have access to leaders at the highest level and develop the camaraderie with teammates that results when there are no silos or barriers to influence.

Interaction with Leadership: Take advantage of myriad formal and impromptu opportunities to share ideas, socialize and collaborate with senior-level executives from all areas of the company.

  • Meet personally with our Chairman and CEO when you join at our headquarters location.
  • Chat and exchange ideas with Leadership during Affinity Group meetings, Coffees with Leadership and online CEO Chats, a great forum for idea exchange.
  • Stay up to date on important developments through Monday morning “10-4” sessions with Leadership.

Interaction like this often leads to special assignments that enable associates to contribute in new ways and uncover new passions and abilities. 

Learning Program: Innovation is our business and our culture. The Inmar Learning Program provides on-site opportunities to focus on your professional development, supporting an environment of continuous improvement and lifelong learning. 

Patent Incentive Program: Inmar offers an active and generous Patent Incentive Program that rewards creative-thinking associates in all areas of our company. The program’s phased structure offers rewards at every stage of the process.

Affinity Groups: Network and engage during and after work hours with team members who share your interests in associate-led groups that grow in number as new ideas emerge. Current groups include:

  • Empowering Inmar Women
  • Emerging Leaders
  • Culture and Wellness

Prefer something more informal? Join lunch-time card battle games or cycling, running, crochet, softball and kickball groups.

Inmar History

Thirty three years ago, John Whitaker, son of an RJ Reynolds Tobacco Company executive, founded Inmar and started the first company called Carolina Coupon Clearing, a business for clearing coupons for retailers. At the time, the advanced technology of the coupon industry involved weighing coupons by the pound. John and his team of former IBM associates had a novel ideal. They decided to apply technology to the practice of coupon settlement.

That was really the start of a philosophy at Inmar that continues today – applying technology to live at the heart of complex transactions, where ultimately billions of dollars are exchanged every year. Our start in coupon processing remains an important part of who we are. But, it's been an amazing journey over these past three decades.

Today Inmar has taken that philosophy of applying technology to complex transactions and operates intelligent commerce networks that improve the quality, efficiency and collaboration among retailers, manufacturers and other trading partners.

Inmar is a trusted third-party intermediary responsible for providing solutions in three unique commerce networks:

    Sales Operations Coordinator Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Inmar.

    Interview

    I applied online, for a different positions, and a recruiter emailed me about my interest in the sales ops coordinator position. I said I was interested and she requested I fill out a pretty basic pre-screen questionnaire before the phone interview. The phone interview went great, the recruiter was easy to talk to and made it easy to feel at ease. Have specific examples of projects you have done and know how they apply to the position you are applying for. Have multiple examples for each topic, always be prepared for the, "and what else?" question. After that I was called in for an on-site interview with a manager in the sales operations department. Once again, great experience, these seem like great people to work for. The third round was another on-site interview and presentation. I had to present to the team I would be working with so they could make sure I was a good fit (I appreciated that they have a say and the company cares about the chemistry of a work group). Then I had a 30 minute interview with the direct manager of the positions, then another with a higher up. Overall, a very challenging interview and invaluable experience.
