    Marketing Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lexington, MA

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at Vistaprint (Lexington, MA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    First there was a 1 hour long interview that involved 1 case question. It was challenging but they just want to know your thought process. Then we were invited to the office for a day long interview. I was there 10 hours from start to finish. The morning involved 3 one hour long interviews, two were cases and one was behavioral. Then the rest of the day involved a tour, panel and mixer to get to know the other employees. They gave you a very good sense of the company but it was 2-3 hours too long.

    Product Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Barcelona (Spain)

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Vistaprint (Barcelona (Spain)) in September 2014.

    Interview

    This was for a non-entry-level posisition. You are contacted first by email, then by phone with the recruiter; if all good, you get another phone interview with a manager; if all good, you get a in-office interview which normally last around 4 hours, which is the last step.

    In this last step, I was given a real case-study, with literally just pen, paper and a simple calculator. After an hour, I had to present my findings to a couple of subject-matter experts. After that I had a 1:1 with a marketing manager, then another 1:1 with the team leader, and lastly a quick wrap up and office tour with someone from HR.

    I had never been in such a detailed hiring process, so I kinda liked it; BUT it was painfully long. The whole thing lasted almost 4 months. Between the last step and the final decision was made, they took 1.5 months!! In all honesty, after waiting so long for a decision, you loose interest. At the end I think I didn't even want to be elected for the job... although Vistaprint has among the highest salaries in Barcelona, so... probably I would have accepted anyway hehe.

    My background is on ecommerce, and the position needed a stronger business analytics background, so I didn't get the offer.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Vistaprint (Lexington, MA) in March 2014.

    Interview

    I started with an on campus interview. It was pretty relaxed with standard behavioral questions. I then was invited to their Lexington office for a final round interview that went from 8 A.M. to 4 P.M.. It consisted of 3 interviews. One behavioral and 2 case studies. The rest of the time was filled with information sessions, a tour of the office, and an office happy hour at the end of the day. It was very informative, but it was a LONG day. They made their decisions quickly and even took the time to call me to tell me that I did not receive an offer. Overall I was impressed with the thought they put into the whole process.
