Thirty three years ago, John Whitaker, son of an RJ Reynolds Tobacco Company executive, founded Inmar and started the first company called Carolina Coupon Clearing, a business for clearing coupons for retailers. At the time, the advanced technology of the coupon industry involved weighing coupons by the pound. John and his team of former IBM associates had a novel ideal. They decided to apply technology to the practice of coupon settlement.
That was really the start of a philosophy at Inmar that continues today – applying technology to live at the heart of complex transactions, where ultimately billions of dollars are exchanged every year. Our start in coupon processing remains an important part of who we are. But, it's been an amazing journey over these past three decades.
Today Inmar has taken that philosophy of applying technology to complex transactions and operates intelligent commerce networks that improve the quality, efficiency and collaboration among retailers, manufacturers and other trading partners.

I have been working at Inmar full-time
Stretches your knowledge. Be prepared for a big learning curve, which is good.
Clique-like atmosphere. Have to be "popular" with the right people. Tons of favoritism.
Advice to Management
Tell your managers to not get involved in the clique-like behavior.
I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Inmar (Winston-Salem, NC) in July 2017.
Completed one phone screen and one in-person interview for the position. The phone screen was relaxed, with general questions, and lasted 30 minutes. Types of questions included why I wanted to work for Inmar, what interested me about the position applied to, what skills from current job could translate over. Was also asked what is my biggest weakness, conflict management, experience with Excel and reporting, and greatest accomplishment in my current role.
The in-person interview went OK. Everyone was very friendly and professional. The environment at Inmar is very roomy and open. There is clear glass everywhere and you can see pretty much what everyone else is doing. It feels a little intimidating, honestly. People are dressed in a range from casual to business casual, some of them even wearing jeans.
A young man interviewed me - very professional and well spoken. The vibe of the interview was one of "get-to-know-you", but he gave me plenty of time to ask questions as well, as he said an interview was a two-way street. The manner in which he presented his questions were eloquent yet firm and intentional, and I think this ended up intimidating me. I choked halfway through the interview because I just didn't feel like we had any chemistry. Overall I had a good learning experience, but I was right when I didn't think he would call me back for a second interview.
Bottom line: prepare a good spiel and rehearse your responses!
