When Kenneth F. Merrill founded the K.F. Merrill Company, in St. Paul, in 1968, he created a culture based on fairness, honesty and respect. That tradition continues today as Merrill has evolved into a global organization with more than 5,000 employees.

Merrill led the industry when it computerized its operations and began building a nationwide network of typesetting and printing facilities to provide faster, more responsive service. Leading this national strategy was John Castro, who joined Merrill in 1978 and retired as Merrill's Chief Executive Officer in July 2014. Between 1982 and 1985, the company opened offices throughout the country. In 1986, the company went public. In 1999, the company was taken private again.

In the late ‘80s, Merrill began to diversify its services, which helped the company weather the 1987 stock-market crash that threatened the financial services industry. In 1986, Merrill established a Document Reproduction Group to offer litigation copying. In the late ‘80s and early ‘90s, Merrill continued to open new offices and acquire regional printers to strengthen its national network. Merrill also established relationships with financial printers in London, Tokyo, Melbourne, Toronto and Montreal to create a global network of service.

Through both organic growth and strategic acquisitions, Merrill has become a leading provider of outsourced document management, branded marketing services and other information management solutions to targeted vertical markets. Our solutions enable clients to create, access, control, analyze and communicate critical information for strategy, marketing and regulatory compliance business initiatives. Delivered through a mix of proprietary technologies, industry specific processes and outsourced services, our solutions maximize both value and ease of use for our customers.

    Good first job for liberal arts majors

    Current Employee - Mailroom Clerk in Chicago, IL
    Current Employee - Mailroom Clerk in Chicago, IL

    I have been working at Merrill Corporation full-time (more than an year)


    As an outsourcer, they are pretty hands-off, which I found to be good.


    Little opportunity for advancement. They also won't respond to inquiries about re-hiring.

    Corporate Position Within Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Paul, MN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Paul, MN
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Merrill Corporation.

    Interview Details

    Submitted resume through their website and heard back within a week to set up preliminary interviews with a recruiter. The interview was set quickly, and once I "passed" that interview, meeting in person was arranged quickly. The whole process was fast -- under a month from initial contact to offer -- and involved many of the people I am now working with on a regular basis. There wasn't a lot of superfluous stuff like tests, which I've run into with most other companies. The interviews focused on relevant experience, past roles and how I might add value quickly to the role. I had a clear idea of expectations and any timelines communicated during the interview process were adhered to closely. The interview style was largely simply conversational and everyone I met with (6 or 7 in total) seemed engaged in the process.

    Interview Questions
    • Because I have a slightly unorthodox career path, we talked about that. It wasn't a difficult discussion -- it just involved talking about things on my resume that I hadn't talked about in an interview situation in ages.   Answer Question
