Perks and Programs

We asked 4imprint, Inc. to share a few programs they feel really capture what's unique about their workplace. Here is what they had to say.

  • One by One: Each business day 4imprint gives three worthy organizations $500 each in promotional products to spread the word, recruit volunteers, thank donors, or offer comfort to someone in need. In 2015, 4imprint awarded 893 promotional products in-kind grants and donated product samples to 1,933 organizations doing charitable work in the US and Canada and to troops overseas. One by one is 4imprint’s way of giving back to help make the world a better place. It’s a program that reflects 4imprint’s culture, philosophy, and ethical commitment.
  • Taking Care of Our Team: We have always seen ourselves as one big family where people take care of each other and help each other in any possible way. This is reflected in the number of programs we created over the years to make everyone’s professional and personal life a little bit easier. We offer bereavement, paid time off for those adopting a child, paid paternity leave, Veteran’s Day off as well as oil changes, food deliveries and in-house DVD and game rentals. Associates can also attend company blood drives, partner with local school reading programs and become involved in fund-raising efforts like hygiene drives for the homeless and making blankets and cards for our troops overseas and senior center agencies.
  • Health & Wellness: Our on-site health and wellness services include a Nurse Practitioner, Registered Nurse, Occupational Therapist, Nutritionist, Massage Therapist, and Wellness Specialist with regular office hours. We also offer a number of work-out classes like Yoga, Pilates, Butts and Guts, Zumba, Muscle Conditioning, and Fit Camp. Initially offered over the lunch hour, these exercise classes have become so popular with our associates that we started offering more classes and extended the work-out hours from 7:00-7:45am, 11:30-1:00pm and 5:00-6:00pm. Other wellness initiatives include reduced fees for healthy lunches, healthy vending machine snacks like grapes & cheese, free health risk assessments, wellness reimbursement for work-out classes and towards gym memberships.
  • Events & Celebrations: 4imprint loves to celebrate! Each year, we hold an associate appreciation party for all associates. 4imprint provides the food, DJ, casino-style gambling, hundreds of prizes, henna tattoos, a photo booth and for the first time, a comedy show in January of 2016 – selected by popular vote. Our Fun Committee organizes a variety of events throughout the year, such as benefits, volunteer and college fairs, pie eating and bubble gum blowing contests, Corporate Cup at the YMCA, pumpkin picking at a local petting zoo, holiday parade floats, company summer picnic, department pig-outs and the 4imprint Associate Night at Waterfest, a local outdoor music festival.
  • Training & Development: At 4imprint, we strongly support a lifetime of learning. The training team has such a passion for learning and tries to instill that passion in our associates by offering as many training opportunities and classes as possible. Throughout the year, we offer between 150-180 training classes in personal and professional development, business skills, world cultures, legal and financial topics. We also offer regular lunch’n learns led by team members, book discussions for the leadership team, leadership roundtable discussions, tuition reimbursement as well as job shadowing and paid internships.
  • Socialcast: In 2015, we introduced our company-wide social network called Socialcast. Similar to Facebook, our associates can now follow each other, post statuses and announcements, and join a number of different groups. With over 70 groups to choose from, associates can connect with other associates based on their personal and professional interests and stay up-to-date with what’s going on at 4imprint.
  • Donated PTO Time: Occasionally associates need to cope with unexpected catastrophic situations but lack enough paid time off to meet their needs. In order to assist associates suffering personal hardship, we have established a “Donate PTO Time” program that allows associates to donate a portion of their accumulated paid time off to assist an associate who is in need. The identity of all donors shall remain confidential and the recipient shall not be advised of the identity of the donors. The identity of those receiving the donated PTO will be held in confidence, except with those on a need-to-know basis strictly for business purposes.
  • Buddy Program: The purpose of 4imprint’s Buddy Program is to help welcome new team members and reaffirm their decision to join our team. This enables new team members to become knowledgeable about company and department practices in a shorter timeframe. A 4imprint Buddy is a more seasoned associate who helps a new team member during his/her first few months at 4imprint. They share their job knowledge, experiences and skills, and help new associates become familiar with the job and the 4imprint culture.
  • Associate Pictures & Videos: When you look at our printed catalogs and flyers, as well as the videos on our YouTube channel, you will see our own associates featured in all of our materials. Associates are paid a small stipend when they model for pictures or participate in a video or voice recordings. Since we rarely take ourselves too seriously, we would recommend you watch our blooper videos on YouTube for some good laughs and a chance to get to know our associates a little better.
  • PTO 3 Volunteer Time: 4imprint does offer all associates eight hours of paid time off to volunteer for organizations of their choice. Associates who volunteered or who were planning to volunteer receive various incentives (t-shirts, prizes, PTO time, etc.) to encourage more participation. In addition, from May through August, associates are encouraged to have another associate volunteer with them or refer a friend - the associate who does the actual referring will also be entered into a separate prize drawing for additional paid volunteer time off.

How to Get Hired

We asked 4imprint, Inc. for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.

What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?

Overall we are looking for a candidate who has some prior relevant experience, fits in our culture and that we are a good fit for them, and is friendly and enthusiastic about the position. Those characteristics go a long way in determining if there is a mutual interest in a position. We want potential associates to feel great and be excited about working at 4imprint! 4imprint’s process is to first scan the resume for qualifications that match the requirements of the job. The HR staff takes special note of anyone who seems to go above and beyond in their resume/cover letter. Above all, 4imprint looks for friendly, conscientious and caring employees who will be a great fit for the culture already present in our company. 

What can prospective employees do to get your attention?

We like to see candidates put a lot of effort into their application process. We love when we get a well-thought out cover letter followed by a nicely formatted resume! Once we have scheduled a phone interview, it’s always great when candidates know a little something about 4imprint and the position they are applying for as well. We have been known to call a candidate who may not be as qualified but has made an effort to stand out and show their enthusiasm! Also, at times candidates can make themselves stand out with their remarkable personality. There have been times that a candidate did not sell themselves on paper, but managed to get a call for an interview after the candidate called 4imprint to inquire about the status of their application, and they were able to convey their personality and passion for the job via that follow-up call. 

Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?

Our open positions are always changing, but our main areas of focus will tend to be customer service representatives, accountants, and embroidery operators. Most of our openings will be for full-time positions. Regardless of the position, 4imprint strives to find candidates who are a fitting match with the team that is currently in place, and individuals we feel would add something special and unique to our company. 

What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?

We would highly encourage you to check out our website and familiarize yourself with what we do to see if you think we would be a company you would like to work for! We encourage applicants to talk with someone who already works here to see what they think about our company. To learn more about 4imprint, we also encourage prospective new hires to check out our website at info.4imprint.com/employment/ and apply for one of our open positions.
