    I worked at Minuteman Press full-time (more than 10 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    They are a well established company with tons of resources available to their franchisees.

    Cons

    Though they have tons of resources available, you'd never know because the advisors will never tell you unless it involves their commission.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide vital information because it's vital. Don't wait for the people to need it. By then it may be too late.

    I have been working at Minuteman Press full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Certainly it's a good place to get experience in the printing and graphics fields. Minimal supervision allows for creativity needed when working on projects.

    Cons

    The pay is about what I would expect from a franchise company and the benefits are about the same. Marketing hasn't been used effectively in some time so the work is somewhat slim.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase marketing and be willing to pay top dollar to the right person to do your marketing.

    I worked at Minuteman Press full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    NONE. THERE IS NOTING POSITIVE I CAN SAY ABOUT THIS HORRIBLE BUSINESS. NEVER USE THEM UNLESS YOU WANT TO BE OVER CHARGED FOR A HORRIBLE PRODUCT.

    Cons

    I was treated like GARBAGE, my time sheets were tampered with, I was not paid for hours and hours that I worked. I even brought in business, which was NOT part of my job description and they kicked me to the curb right after x-mas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give a new hire more than ONE chance to complete an assignment.

    Pros

    Stable workplace, job is easy and good working environment. They may offer bonus based on sales.

    Cons

    Not much room for advancement. Small individually owned franchises so owner likes to keep profit and pay employees as little as possible.

    Pros

    This company had a fantastic team of dedicated professionals. Our on-time delivery was nearly 100%, and our returns were less than 1%.

    Cons

    The owner went head-to-head with Xerox and lost, forcing the closure of the company.

    I worked at Minuteman Press as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great explanation of procedures, policies, job duties, and company overview by management. Quality training provided on the job. Feedback on job performance is provided on a regular basis. Management was readily available to answer questions.

    Cons

    Not much variety was offered in job duties. The corporate culture was such that it was difficult at times to keep a positive attitude while on the job.

    Pros

    Wonderful coworkers, fast paced, good variety of work.

    Cons

    Very poor salary with no raises or bonus. Was promised one week of vacation after almost two years but never received it. They offer no health benefits. The female owner is very stubborn and hard to work with. She spoke down and degraded me. She even insulted my car and clothing (I was always dressed well). The male owner (husband) has a great personality but no backbone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees better. They always said we were family but were so self-centered, they could not see what was really going on with the team.

    Former Employee - Graphic Designer and Customer Service in Arlington Heights, IL

    I worked at Minuteman Press full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The days are varied. You could get up from your computer and work on other projects. You got to determine what you did each day. The structure was not overly rigid. The people that worked there were easy to get a long with and did their jobs well. They would take time out to help or teach. When mistakes occurred, we just had to fix them.

    Cons

    Raises were hard to come by. Since there where only a few employees, there was not room for promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow the business more.
