Above average warehouse job
Stocker/Picker (Former Employee), Lincoln, NEApril 1, 2014
Pros: minimal supervision, no customers to deal with
Cons: physical job, can get very hectic
I worked at NBC a few times as a temp worker. The pay wasn't great, and I was on my feet all day, but I didn't have to interact with customers, and as long as you get your job done, no one really bothers you. This is a good summer or winter break job for students, although I'm not sure it's something most people would want to do long-term. The floor – more... is really hard on your feet, plus there is a lot of climbing up and down ladders and bookshelves. During the busy seasons, things can get extremely hectic, and there are lots of opportunities for overtime. For stockers, overtime is typically mandatory, but it's optional for pickers. Everyone there is very nice, and the supervisors don't micromanage. I'd say this is an above average warehouse-type job and great if you don't like interacting with customers, but bad if you don't like being on your feet. – less

Great managerial experience.
Store Manager (Former Employee), Stillwater, OKMarch 23, 2014
Pros: located next to oklahoma state university's football stadium and basketball arena.
Cons: student employee pool afforded limited availability
This position really opened my eyes to the way business on a corporate level is done.This was also my first job after I graduated from college, so I had a limited perspective on how things worked.

This position helped to improve my knowledge of the business world and sharpened my leadership and client-service skills.

The hardest part of the job was – more... that I had few human resources to work with, as only students applied for my open positions because they were min. wage. and they had limited availability. There was not enough payroll for an assistant so a lot of responsibility was on me - and I had no problem with that.

My management was very hands-off,

The part of the job I most enjoyed was interacting with my employees and my customers while holding down a business. – less

An Amazing collection of staff
Operations Supervisor (Former Employee), Berkeley, CANovember 17, 2013
A typical day at Ned's revolved around the students, the teachers, and the publishers of maintaining a balance for a well run bookstore. I learned how to balance a safe, how to post sales and run reconciliation and how starting off opening morning could affect the rest of the staff's day. Every one of our staff was experienced and hardworking and versed – more... in front of house and back of house duties and were always willing to help each other out. The hardest part of the job was always rush when 32,000 students flooded the store for their school supplies and we juggled maintaining the store to keep up professional and helpful place for our customers. – less

Team Member (Current Employee), Swainsboro, GAJune 26, 2013
Pros: great work environment, great staff, working at a college, customers always love us
Cons: during the off season our hours get cut dramtically
Working with Neebo has been great over the years. The company treats us well I can say I will miss working here. Everyday I help students with problems they may be having whether it be related to our store or not, they know they can come here to get the facts straight and get the info they need. I've learned so much about customer service here and it – more... has really prepared me for my future working life. My co-workers were always fun to work with and we have been through much together.

Some of the hardest times here are also some of the funnest. During the financial aid periods we are super busy. The line never stops from 8am to 6pm for two weeks straight. Its great meeting all the new students and seeing all the returning students coming back to say hi. Its really demanding during these times though, we are working constantly with almost no breaks. It is both fun but hard. – less

Buying and selling wholesale college textbooks
House Representative (Former Employee), Lincoln, NEMay 28, 2013
Pros: healthcare, co-workers
Cons: pay, time away from families
Various job duties consisted of warehouse work to evaluate and price incoming purchased textbooks, enter and process book orders, pull textbook orders and set up for shipping. Non-warehouse duties were to primarily travel to various college/university bookstore locations to assist in purchasing textbooks from bookstore staff, students and faculty.

The – more... hardest part of this job was the possibility of long hours involved with traveling and the amount of time spent away from family. The most enjoyable part was getting to travel and meeting people around the country and developing friendships with co-workers. – less

Great company to work for in a declining industry
Textbook Manager/Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Norfolk, VAMarch 4, 2013
Nebraska Book Company has a lot of good things to offer as a company; however, the textbook industry is in a decline. With Nebraska, you will earn the bulk of your money as a annual bonus. This bonus is directly related to sales and to profit margin. With the online textbook sellers, it is very hard to compete; and profit margins are difficult to meet.

This company offers space to work up, but being a student, I felt like they should have been more open as far as working around school schedules. However, they tried to make the time there fun.
