I have been working at Metropolitan Printing Service full-time (More than 8 years)
It's a job and other co-workers are cool
Management sucks...no raises in 10+ years....moral of employees is very low
Advice to Management
Hope you get yours someday!!
I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Metropolitan Printing Service (Bloomington, IN) in February 2013.
This interview process began at a job fair at my University. I talked to the people running the Consolidated Graphics table and signed up for an on-campus interview the very next day.
The on-campus interview was one-on-one. The interview went well and I did not hear from my interviewer until I emailed her two weeks later. She sent a recommendation to Consolidated Graphics HQ in Texas so that I could interview with any branch that I wanted. I chose Metropolitan Printing because I was interested in the Technology Career Track. My interview was scheduled for the next week.
My interview with Metropolitan was unexpectedly rigorous. There were four rounds of interviews, each consisting of two different employees with an exception for the final round, which was one-on-one with the president.
The questions that I was asked were generic and typical of any job interview. The employees were very welcoming and nice. However, when I finally interviewed with the president, I immediately got the impression that he wasn't interested in me. He didn't want to ask me any questions because he "has his employees ask the hard questions for him." I told him about my skill set and that I was interested in the Technology career track (which the Consolidated Graphics website said they wanted), but he told me that they were looking for somebody in Sales.
At that point, I knew I didn't have a chance to get that position.
I would not recommend applying to this branch if you're interested in a Technology position. During the interview, I was told that they don't do much with the technology career track at that branch. Consolidated Graphics needs to update their website.
