    I worked at Excelligence Learning full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's a good "starter" job for someone straight out of school looking for experience.

    They sell a lot of arts and crafts supplies, and they usually give you reasons to play with them a few times a year.

    Cons

    Management is pretty settled in their ways and aren't truly open to new ideas. Oh, they say they are, but everything always stays as it was. If you're not a manager, your ideas are worthless. They also tend to make excuses for the poor performance of some long-time employees.

    Longterm potential is pretty much zero. The company has no intention of ever giving anyone a raise. Although rumor has it that the managers are fed bonuses regularly. The rest of the employees are just lucky to have jobs. It's true that a lot of people have been there for 10+ years, but most of the new employees that come into the company leave within two years or so after seeing that it's a complete dead end for a career.

    Despite a recent facelift, the backend of their websites are all stuck in about 2003, which severely limits online growth potential.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe put some effort into retaining talent instead of driving it away.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Excelligence Learning in March 2008.

    Interview Details

    FIrst I received a phone screening where we discussed the position and to see if I were a fit and to see if the position was what I expected. I then got called in for a 1 on 1 interview with the Art Director, he reviewed my portfolio and proceeded to ask questions about my career and asked me to come back for a final interview. The final interview was with the Editor, again we reviewed my portfolio and questions where asked.

    Finally I was asked to take a skills assessment for photoshop and a personality test.

    The people in the art department are awesome. Probably the best group to work for in the whole company.
