Shipping and Receiving (Former Employee) – Kentucky – April 10, 2018
A typical work day would be clock in then go to our work station then start working. I learn to always stay humble and work hard everyday. The most thing I enjoyed about working at Cafe Press was being around my friends I grow up with everyday.
Once an Industry Leader, Now Struggling to Catch Up
Manager (Current Employee) – Louisville, KY – March 7, 2018
This company literally invented the idea of selling custom-printed t-shirts via the Internet. Now, the stock is only a few cents away from being de-listed from NASDAQ. The main issue is that upper management keep rushing from short-term strategy to short-term strategy. This may bring cash right away, but in the long term, the company ends up crippled by years of failed legacy projects and spaghetti code that hinders development and makes the website difficult for customers to use. The CEO is also currently serving as the head of technology AND the head of merchandising. That's fine for a startup, but not for a company that's been in business nearly 20 years.
Dedicated people, close-knit culture, free snacks at headquarters
lack of long-term vision, falling stock/profits, no funds for improvement, decades of bad legacy code/apps
Easy climate controlled envirement no set annual pay increase
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – February 26, 2018
Easy climate controlled job but needs help in the payroll department has healthcare including dental,vision, and life insurance. 401k, 2 paid weeks off a year. 3 out of 5 stars. Hardest part of the job is standing on the concrete floors the whole shift.

This is one of the best places I have ever worked. Management really cares about you and your family life. They will work with you to make sure you have all the training you need to complete daily task.

Special Orders Coordinator/Expeditor (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – April 12, 2017
If you love working a lot a days in a row without a day off then this is the place for you, but only during peak season.There are lot of perks to working here like discounted and free merchandise from time to time. When its not peak season you may not get 40 hours a week so make sure you put up some of that overtime money you will make between November and February.
free lunch during peak season, frequent breaks, and free merchandise
Production Worker (Current Employee) – Louisville, KY – March 22, 2017
cafe press is long hours and great pay and you will have alot of motavated people around you so it makes those long hours not feel so bad and it makes time fly before you know it you look at the clock and you just worked 10 hours
Production Associate (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – March 21, 2017
I did like this job in the beginning we would get free lunches and gift cards for getting big orders out on time, there was no room for advancement if you were a lead don't depend on that position,most likely you would be demoted back. The people were ok to work with didn't have too many issues with that. The pay is what I have a problem with, I worked there for almost nine years started out as a temp making nine an hour got hire in three months went up to eleven per hour, after nine years I was making twelve an hour!! Every time I asked for a raise they would have an excuse, I do feel stupid for staying so long with little pay. I know they are not doing too good now but have money to build a new multi million dollar headquarters in Louisville. And I do believe if they can afford a new headquarters , they can afford to increase their employees pay!!

Manufacturing/Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – March 2, 2017
My only regret was not taking their full-time offer after ending the seasonal position! All of management were incredible and you could tell everyone cared about their job, making the work place safe and fun, and truly wanted to help and take care of company customers.
Fraud Analyst (Former Employee) – San Mateo, CA – January 20, 2017
I loved the print on demand idea that started this company. I felt good about my roll in this company stopping as much fraud as possible. When I caught a fraudsters, especially a really tricky one, well that was very exciting. Hardest part was trying not to bother customers with good/legitimate orders. The culture was fun with a lot of highly intelligent people. I was proud to be part of it. The Human Resources team was one of the best I had ever worked with. I will miss CafePress.
