    I have been working at CafePress full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great People to work with. The vending machines are discounted a lot. They feed you lunch more than 20X per year. Good Vacation Policy.

    Cons

    4th quarter is dedicated to CP. You have to be dedicated to them from Thanksgiving to Christmas.
    Other than that, they are very flexible.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing, make Cafepress great again. You can't make everyone happy and don't believe all of this negative feedback on this site.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at CafePress (Louisville, KY) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and quickly received a response within a couple of days. An HR coordinator reached out to me via phone and setup a time to meet with one of their leaders. After that phone interview, follow-up interviews were scheduled a day later with various team members onsite. I had two interviews, each lasting an hour, and each included 2 to 3 people at a time. The interview was pretty informal in nature, with the occasional "canned-interview" style questions, which I despise. All seemed well and I enjoyed meeting the team, although I never received a follow-up email, phone call or any communication indicating if they were or were not interested. Pretty Busch league, and unprofessional.

    Overall, the people seemed nice. I would have rated this as a positive experience if one of the guys wasn't being disrespectful playing with his phone the whole interview, and if I received some sort of follow-up. I was on the fence about the culture anyway, but I feel I at least deserved some sort of call back letting me know they weren't interested. Made the decision easier for me ;-)
