    Pros

    Getting to work with the clients and helping them bring their jobs up to spec and ready for print.

    Cons

    Some downside of working at Minuteman Press were the fact that the clients did not understand what a deadline meant.

    Advice to Management

    Give more time to projects.

    Pros

    This review is solely for the Beaverton, OR franchise located near the intersection of Hall and Nimbus.

    • Getting time off is usually not much of a challenge.
    • Work is not challenging, assuming you're competent.
    • Work long enough and you'll probably get a raise by default.

    Cons

    • Loyalty to the company and time spent working there are of no importance here, only your cost to the company in wages paid.
    • Excelling at work or pushing to improve is of no importance. Any perceived negatives will outweigh any and all positive contributions.
    • Advancement opportunities are non-existent.
    • Below-average pay for the industry.
    • Owner is strongly anti-equal rights and will not hesitate to express political beliefs (Although this may be a pro - you'll be well-received by the owner if you're vocally conservative and/or Mormon).
    • Owner is dishonest, both in interactions with employees and customers.
    • Owner handles adversity poorly.
    • Equipment is dated and frequently barely or non-functional.

    Advice to Management

    • Respect your employees and their contributions.
    • Improve your sales staff instead of looking for discount employees.
    • Learn that sometimes investing money is necessary to make money.
    • Stop relying on dated print markets and sales techniques for generating income.
    • Leave personal agendas at home.
    • Let someone else run the business altogether.

    Pros

    Boss cared a lot for his customers.

    Cons

    Boss did not care about the well being of his employee. I was ignored when I brought up issues that were critical to a more productive workflow. I was held to a double standard. Pay was not consistent with workflow and or job standards.

    Advice to Management

    Please have patients in the beginning because there should be a learning curve. Also give your employee proper training. Please do not blame everything on him when you work in a team environment. You will only create stress within the work place which in turn I'm sure will lead to your employees resignation and or being fired.

    Pros

    So many opportunities to learn more about the business printing industry. A great environment to work in. Always felt encouraged to do my best and take on more responsibility.

    Cons

    Small company which does not allow for very much upward movement. Not a lot of variety was offered in job duties.

    Pros

    The people working here are pretty easy to get along with, as long as you work hard and don't slack.

    For an intern, compensation was great! I was paid more than minimum wage and was given the opportunity to work full-time.

    As an intern, I don't know if there would have been a better opportunity for learning. They were patient with my mistakes and did not hesitate to give me responsibilities, even as an intern. When I had questions, everyone took time to answer them completely.

    Cons

    As a designer, there is little to offer as far as career expansion goes. It's a pretty fast-paced, no-nonsense job with small tedious projects, but if getting relatively small jobs done quickly and efficiently is your thing – this place might be your thing. It's by no means a bad place to work, but it's not the most exciting job you could take.


  11. The experience was very rewarding and priceless

    Pros

    The opportunity to develop a region of individually owned businesses, and be a part of their success.

    Cons

    The experiences of the occasional individual franchise owner not choosing to follow our successful program to build their business to desired levels.

    Advice to Management

    Continue on each day with a positive attitude, willingness to help and never give up.
