Manufacturing Technology Director (Former Employee) – Redwood City, California – November 15, 2012
For years, everyday, I strove to design the most productive / cost effective product manufacturing systems Shutterfly could deploy; systems which could deliver Shutterfly customers the finest personalized, printed products available.
I learned that a small company, operated by people who love both the company and the company's products, can be a very, very satisfying place to work.

Customer Care Representative/Technical Support (Current Employee) – Shakopee, MN – August 11, 2016
I enjoyed working at Shutterfly. The company is great, the people are amazing. I learned a lot and was able to polish up my computer and technical skills while with them. I worked there for about a year and didnt receive any benefits and was promised promotions and raises that never happened - leadership was great but sometimes unprofessional and had a lack of passion. over the christmas season, you work 70+ hr weeks but the rest of the year youre lucky to get 30 hrs a week because of how slow it is.
Machine Operator (Former Employee) – Tempe, AZ – August 10, 2016
This job isn't hard, but it will test your patience... Between machines in constant disrepair, management forcing unneccesary work flow changes, and the general miscommunication between managers/leads/payroll, you'll be in the sorry spot of being held accountable for events out of your control.
that said: you can meet lots of new people, get paid weekly, and learn cool machinery
Get a comfortable pair of shoes, lower your expectations for raise/promotion, and you'll be set for easy 12 hour shifts, 3-4 days a week.
3-4 day weekends, with chance of overtime. Paid weekly. Loose dress code
Slim-to-none chance of raise or promotion, employees are highly expendable, management out of touch with limits of machinery/employees
Management has different requirements for employees
Machine operator II (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – August 7, 2016
VP of operation and plant manager are all about quality, but the leads and managers are all about numbers and quality does not matter to them. this is due to the managers bonus is tied to production numbers and labor tracking. Managers lack the understanding that the machines need downtime and proper cleaning to maintain there high work flow. 1 - 5 hrs downtime a week saves the machine from being down weeks at a time. on feet for 12 hours a day with no sitting allowed walk 6 - 8 miles per shift hours change on volume making you burn your PTO to maintain a livable wage
free soda and water, good discounts and free items if you like shutterfly swag.
long distance to break room with short breaks, Spend most you time walking to the break room and back than you do on your breaks, office staff is treated way better than production employees
I enjoyed my job responsibilities and enjoyed being a part of a good team.
Commercial-UHG lead/Machine Operator (Current Employee) – Fort Mill, SC – June 9, 2016
I enjoyed the various duties I preformed in producing commercial books for shipping. A typical day would begin with distributing work that was all ready to bind. Next I would make covers for the text being printed, then match with the text with the covers and distribute that as well. I would then take the bound books and cut them, personalize them if needed and ship them. It is fast paced and time always passes quickly. I am a part of a team that works well together and does whatever it takes to get the job done, together.
RECEPTIONIST (Former Employee) – Fort Mill, SC – April 29, 2016
Shutterfly was absolutely the most professional, fun and family orientated company to work for. Very relaxing environment, whether in the HR department or on the customer service floor its an awesome place to call your work place. From the wonderful management team to the awesome employees they choose to hire. You just cant go wrong when working here. From employee kickball games, the cool break room with a pool table, Xbox, Tv, Beanie bags, etc and we cant forget the snacks are only 25 and 50 cents. Plenty of room to grow and most importantly there is balance. You never feel out of place here. EVERYONE that works here is AWESOME!!!
Machine Operator (Former Employee) – Fort Mill, SC – April 20, 2016
This company showed me how to operate a machine while i were required to cut a specific amount before my shift was over. The hardest part about the job was actually working 12 hours until my body got adjusted to the schedule i was on. A typical day at work basically was just work until relieved from your shift. This job was an excellent experience and was the first job I have operated a machine
