It used to be a good place to work...

Color Services Specialist (Former Employee) Laguna Hills, CA

ProsNOTE: This review refers to one of the companies that was acquired by American Reprographics back in 2002.

If you are into Graphic Design, it is an excellent place to learn the next step, which is digital prepress and printing. And you learn new things every day. You get to work with the best commercial design and image manipulation software available - Illustrator, Photoshop, Quark, InDesign, etc.- and the best commercial printing equipment. (No offset, so there is no film, color separations or plates used here)
Coworkers and managers were mostly nice people. You could get time off whenever you asked, with few exceptions.

ConsLost that "big family" athmosphere, which it had when it was an independent, regional company.
Stress levels very high, due to tight deadlines, being shorthanded and layoff worries. But this may be true for the whole industry also.
Because of being understaffed, overtime could go crazy, especially on night shift. This may be good (overtime pay) and bad (less family life/ social life).
