    Merchandising Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Fairfax, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at CustomInk (Fairfax, VA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of one preliminary phone screen with the recruiter, followed by a videoconference with the hiring manager. The questions were about my interest in the position, the company, and related work experience. I was then asked to complete an exercise to test my skills and expertise in merchandising. A week later, I was asked to come in for a half day of in-person interviews, which included four one-hour interviews with various team members and an office tour. Everyone I spoke with was very passionate about the company and the culture. They were genuinely interested in understanding my previous experience, work-style, and how I would respond to various situations to ensure I was a good fit for the team and the company. This was one of the best interview experiences I’ve had, which is why I was excited to receive and accept the offer!

    Production Associate Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at CustomInk (Charlottesville, VA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I applied for a job at CustomInk in Charlottesville, Va. I was encouraged to apply by some friends and was very glad I did. The initial offline overview was great, the woman very nice and asking general questions as well as answering any questions I had. After that interview I was asked to come in for an in person interview at the production facility. I was greeted by a nice young lady who got one of the Inkers to give me a tour. He knew his stuff and was very passionate about his work, very friendly. Gave advice and seemed generally invested in the company. The next interview was with the two Production managers who were great but about learning who I was and if I was a good fit. After a few specific questions about work ethic and flexibility, and responses from everybody it seemed like it was clearly a good fit. After thanks and handshakes I went home. I later received a call a few days later with an offer. Very straight forward.

    Expert Production Artist Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at CustomInk (Reno, NV).

    Interview

    It was good at first, but things went downhill fast with egos and superiority complexes.
    They expect you to be fast and accurate for little pay. "productivity and accuracy" meanwhile the supervisors and managers have never had to accomplish these "goals" they will give you a hard time if you dont reach the set goals. its very hypocritical.

    Interview Questions

    • most questions were normal, nothing memorable. maybe one question they asked that i can remember is how did you help solve a problem - which is kind of the norm in any interview. nothing special.   1 Answer

    Financial Analyst Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at CustomInk.

    Interview

    One of the most unpleasant interview experiences. The HR apparently didn't know what the job was about and had very limited knowledge in Finance. After I described my corporate finance role at my current employer, the HR asked me "What else do you do besides DATA ENTRY?" I didn't mention anything regarding the data entry during the description. All I said was my current role including some financial terms. I guess the reason she asked this question was because I told her the reason I was looking for new opportunities was I would like that my work could have more impact on the corporate and business. I am very glad she sent me a rejection letter a few days later.

    Production Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Charlottesville, VA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at CustomInk (Charlottesville, VA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I applied and received a response via email pretty quickly. A couple of days later I was doing a phone interview. The lady seemed nice and used the word "cool" a lot, as if trying to come off like a laid back progressive company. She was friendly and I thought the interview went great. I have a background in arts and crafts, customer service, and retail. But I guess I'm not what they're looking for. I thought it went great. But two days later. Nope. Don't get personal with them. They care about numbers and they want to make sure you can crank out the numbers on a daily basis. I thought I would've been a good fit but I got an email saying "due to the strong response for this job opening, we decided not to move forward as were considering better candidates for the role." Which really doesn't make sense in my opinion because they've been advertising that they're hiring ever since they day they moved into this place. If I'm not a good fit for the role, I don't know who is. Maybe if they actually hired some people they could simmer down with the radio ads, online ads, newspaper ads, magazine ads, recruiters etc who've bombarded Charlottesville on a daily basis ever since they moved here. Someone trying to justify their jobs maybe?

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CustomInk (Charlottesville, VA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I submitted my application and got a call 2 weeks later to come in for an interview the next day. I showed up and was greeted by the head of the hiring department. He was cool and we talked for about 30 monutes. It all seemed very relaxed and it seemed positive. I went on a tour and met some current employees who all seemed chipper and then for about an hour at the end i was put in a room with 2 people who thoroughly reviewed my resume. Like you need qualifications for an entry level manufacturong job. They practically attacked me verbally while scrutinizing my work history.

    Production Associate Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8+ weeks. I interviewed at CustomInk in June 2016.

    Interview

    Overall there were three interviews and a tour of the production floor. The first was a telephone interview and it was about 15 minutes long because they had just changed their screening process. So they went ahead and scheduled me in for an in-person interview.

    The company building is really nice and has a very warm and welcoming feel to it. My second interviewer was very informative and positive, she was the one I had spoken on the phone with. Overall I would have to say the first in-person interview was the easiest, nerve wise.

    After we spoke for about a half hour she handed me off to another Inker who gave me the tour. Again, really informative and he took me through each step of the process from picking the shirts to getting them ready for shipment.

    Finally I met with two of the hiring managers for my third interview. This one was the toughest and at one point I even had to admit that I was nervous, but they were super friendly and reassuring. They went over a series of questions that really got in depth about reliability, teamwork, and your overall work ethic.

    I was able to get all of my questions answered and I have to say that it was a really enjoyable interview process.

    Interview

    I was interviewed on site. She was really nice but the person in my position before me left suddenly so they needed to hire someone quickly. The interview was more intimate and trying to get to know me as a person and not as much a number.
