    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Vistaprint.

    Interview

    They give you a case that involves targeting a new market, and want to see how you think. It's not very difficult, simply involves doing some simple math and taking the interviewer through your thought process. Once you finish the case, you are free to ask questions and the first round is over.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Vistaprint (Boston, MA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Applied on LinkedIn, talked to recruiter for the 1st round phone screen, then the hiring manager for the 2nd round. if pass, they bring you onsite. But the reason for me writing this review is please avoid this position or at least the Customer & Competitive Insights team. The recruiter didnt send me the interview confirmation till the interview date. The hiring manager YAWNed 3 times through the interview. If you are tired, please reschedule the interview. If you think I am boring, please end the interview fast rather than keeping yawning and throwing tons of boring and tedious questions.

    From the JD, the position requires statistics, maths or engineering background, but in real work none of the knowledge is needed.

    It is a large organization. but please be more professional in the interview.

    One day with two back to back, hour long interviews. Both were extremely hands-on. The first asked how you would solve a problem and you had to explain in words and draw on a whiteboard.

    Interview

    I was brought in for several days of interviews and met with people from across the organization. It was well-coordinated and a pleasant experience.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Vistaprint.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume during a career fair, then was contacted for a first round interview on campus. It was a one hour case study. I was then contacted for a second round interview - it would be all day at the Vistaprint office. The first half of the day was a tour of the office and presentations by various employees. Lunch was provided and I ate with other candidates and employees. The afternoon consisted of three consecutive hour long interviews, two of which were case studies and the last was a behavioral interview. At the end of the interviews, we were invited to a reception with the marketing department. The whole process was very positive and the recruiters were very friendly. Transportation and food was provided which was a huge plus. They also responded right away with decisions through phone calls.

    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.
