    Pros

    Culture is great at Jostens, the dress code is very laid back and revolves around dress for you day.
    The Management at Jostens is willing to help individuals that need assistance, but not over-bearing or try and micro management everything that you do.

    Cons

    Communication is sometimes lacking between departments and emails are left unanswered for important projects or incidents.
    Job descriptions are changed on the fly sometimes for people, depending on the work required and no form of compensation is provided or discussed for additional roles and responsibilities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Providing a better picture for employees for a roadmap to their career and better year-end reviews. Give supportive and useful feedback for what can be done to help an employee progress in their career.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Jostens in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    The process was very quick. I got a call from a recruiter on a Tuesday, had an interview at 10am on Wednesday, and a job offer by Thursday afternoon. Interview was very thorough to ensure I had knowledge of the area, especially considering my degree does not match my field. Actual start date was pushed back quite a long time, but this was partially due to a mid-week holiday, which would have given us a strange, inefficient training schedule.

    Interview Questions
    • The toughest part was just the "pop quiz" he put me through. Asking basic technical and troubleshooting questions, how to start/stop services, how to troubleshoot network issues, what to do if a customer is unable to reach a webpage, etc.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I could have negotiated, but, being my first job, the salary and benefits exceeded what I had expected to get and I happily accepted without any negotiation. They paid me above what my experience and schooling should have granted me.
