Mail Sorter (Seasonal) (Former Employee) – Tecumseh, ON – 23 January 2019
I worked in mail/sort and I loved it. Made many friendships and the job was simple. Heavy lifting might be the only rough part about the job. Supervisors/management were super friendly and very approachable.
Past minion (Former Employee) – Lakeshore – 16 January 2019
Starting from plant HR manager to some supervisors this work environment is mismanaged. Most of the best supervisors left or were let go. From the floor rumors suggest unjustly. Most of the people on floor are genuine and willing to help however some are on their way to more responsibilities and have no issue being underhanded like their peers and supervisors.
Cafeteria and support staff is very friendly. Would not suggest putting in any real effort and using this place for no more than a stepping stone.
Production Associate (Current Employee) – Windsor, ON – 16 December 2018
The pay is great considering it is a factory job.
I was hired through the Job Shoppe as a temp worker. My shifts are cancelled frequently. At the end of the "blackout", I was cancelled for 5 consecutive days.
The job duties themselves aren't very difficult, but do require that you meet targets. Certain aspects make meeting your targets difficult such as technical issues with PDA device which happens quite a bit.
Vista Print PC's nor the Supervisor give constructive feed back. You're trained for 2 hours on shipping and expected to meet targets right away.
There is also a lot of favouritism from the PC's.
Free coffee, Good pay, Co-workers
Shift cancellations, Lack of constructive criticism, Favouritism
Material handler for Logistics department (Former Employee) – Lakeshore, ON – 22 October 2018
I really enjoyed working here. I had high hopes of being hired on, with two sick days used over 7 months. Despite going through the interview process, I was terminated without explanation 3 weeks after. Payed breaks, great benefits from what I've heard, and I can say the people I worked with in the Logistics department were friendly.
If given the opportunity, I'd work here again in hopes of getting hired on. **Just know that this company is known to lay people off without explanation.**

General Labourer (Former Employee) – Windsor, ON – 25 April 2018
The management are fat headed trolls who listen to gossip, favor nepotism, and spy on innocent hard working people just to make trouble in their lives. Management needs to be revamped and only then will vistaprint be a nice place to work.
Temporary Team Member - Production (Former Employee) – Lakeshore, ON – 18 January 2018
A typical day at work includes your Shift Rotation Days-Afternoons. Arrive at Vistaprint early, wait for bell that indicated shift is in 5 mins, punch in, second bell goes off indicating start of shift. Employee's are given 2 breaks and one lunch, during shift. Depending on different areas in building, different tasks will be performed. Management is very resourceful and respectful and willingness to assist you when you need help. Workplace culture mirrors the manners the management portrays; helpful and respectful. The hardest part of the job is the swing shift, but you grow a custom, the most enjoyable part of the job is the other employee's you work with daily.
General Labourer (Current Employee) – Lakeshore, ON – 17 January 2018
Working for Vistaprint has been a very good experience. The staff and workers adhere to a very strict acceptance/no harassment policy: making it a very enjoyable job. The pay is fair and benefits are amazing. I am constantly learning new things and get encouraged by management often. It is very physical but accommodations are made to help a worker ergonomically
General Labourer - Seasonal Temporary Employee (Current Employee) – Windsor, ON – 18 December 2017
Vistaprint was definitely an interesting place to work at. I loved the worked environment and the people I worked with. It wasn't a traditional factor. Its clean and quiet. The downfall is working for a temp agency. Nobody knew what was going on at all. Its like pulling teeth to get the correct information out of everyone. They also would hide things like you work 44 hours before getting paid time and half for overtime which there wasn't much overtime nor was there much work at all. This leads to having a shift called off every week. I would get my 40 hours cut short and not get paid over time on my Saturday.
Production Operator (Former Employee) – Windsor, ON – 5 June 2017
I really enjoyed my time with Vistaprint on the midnight shift. The work was physically demanding but rewarding. There was exceptional teamwork, the production coordinators and supervisors were friendly and helpful.My coworkers were fun and great to work with and several have become good friends. The factory is huge but clean, the atmosphere is welcoming and the pay and bonuses are more than fair. There was quite a bit of overtime, but the pay makes it worth it. Highly recommend this job for anyone starting on.
Manufacturing Engineer (Current Employee) – Windsor, ON – 23 April 2017
The Vistaprint plant in Windsor is indeed a great place to work however the engineering and operations positions are quite demanding and can prove challenging when it comes to work and life balance. Although not an automotive plant, the vast majority of the management group comes from that environment and they bring with them the same management philosophies and styles.
Material Handler and Binning (Former Employee) – Tecumseh, ON – 28 March 2017
Had two stints at Vistaprint - The first was as a material handler and I thoroughly enjoyed the role. Got a great physical workout for 8 hours a day and lost weight :-)
The second stint was as a "Binner" The shift always went quick but you are moving non-stop and don't even have the opportunity take a drink from your water bottle due to the expectations of 440 scans per hour.
Too many glitches with the scanning gun and wasted scans because of missing items in the bins.
For the wage, certainly is not worth it in binning and they evidently need you to be a robot or a speed demon.
Nice clean environment but management does a poor job in monitoring to improve performance. All they look as is the number of scans . . . .
