This was an internship that I needed to complete my degree. However, I am glad I was able to be a part of it. My boss made sure I was able to learn every new skill so that I could do it on my own if need be!
Temp warehouse (Former Employee) – Nebraska – May 12, 2016
I was a warehouse temp working for NBC awhile ago but my coworkers were the most entitled group I had to deal with. Management does a great job of communicating and reaching out to employees and trying to promote a good culture but it falls on deaf ears. The new senior management does a great job and it's unfortunate how unappreciative people are.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Godfrey, IL – February 21, 2016
Working with college students and textbooks was very interesting. There are many great customers and a few really bad apples, but overall the people are great. There isn't really any room for advancement because they only offer temporary work for college workers. Also they are paid tri-weekly which made a huge paycheck because they gave you perfect hours right around your school schedule. They were located on campus, so you can work before and after class.
Software QA Analyst (Former Employee) – Lincoln, NE – February 2, 2016
Great coworkers and friendly work environment.
Lots of VP and Directors that make poor decisions. Pay is low compare to the market. I get pay 2x as much for the same job after I left for a different company. It's not bad if you just get out of school and need a starter job.
Store Manager (Former Employee) – Monroe, LA – December 15, 2015
Being able to have worked for this company was a very skilled experience. Sale books to student as well as stock inventory, file documents. Setup temporary locations stores for smaller schools. The most part of the job that was enjoyable setting up the computer software for different schools as well as being able to experience the difference of people.
Assistant Branch Manager/TEAM LEADER (Former Employee) – WC3, Detroit Michigan – October 8, 2015
Good work place with good co-workers. Limited amount of problems with new hires, expected in large business. Enjoyed working with my co-workers and helping them succeed. Management changed things little different but manageable. Enjoyed everyday meeting and assisting new customers in the school. Love helping in every way I could.
Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee) – Norfolk, VA – September 21, 2015
I could not have enough good things to say about my time at the Dominion Bookstore. I worked with a lot of my friends, the hours I worked were a nice balance to my academic schedule, and I was even promoted to assistant manager my senior year. There's a lot of turnover like any other college job but pretty much unpacking/shipping textbooks + customer service is the bulk of most job duties.
Manager, Maryville College Bookstore (Former Employee) – Maryville, TN – August 18, 2015
The company no longer exists. It was purchased and assimilated by Follett Corporation. Bad management led to poor business practices, making the company a good candidate for being purchased by a bigger company.
It was a great pleasure to work on a college campus among the Staff, Faculty, and students
Long hours(11+) with no breaks. No support from chain of command.
responsibe for my on day, traveling and setting calendar.
Sales Representative/ Territory Manager (Former Employee) – Ky., Tn., W. Virginia, Virginia, S. IL. – July 23, 2015
Making phone call to set up appointments, using e-mail to set appointment and keep in touch with other things that needed attention, traveling to different customer locations and making sales calls , going over up coming events and what was need to follow up from last time I made call on that account. Traveling on to other accounts and making phone call to take care of service issues along with providing information as needed. working on CMR to keep everyone up to date on what was going on with each customer. Getting to know customers and building long term relationships was one of more fond memories of this time in my working life.
IT Support Representative (Current Employee) – Lincoln, NE – July 13, 2015
This was a good place to work, years ago, raises, bonus' company Holiday parties, summer picnics great benefits. Stayed with the company during the bankruptcy even though there was a pay raise freeze placed on all employees, for 3 years. Once out of bankruptcy, small raises were given and thank you for sticking with them. Then things began to change, work classifications from salaried to Salary plus, with the plus being the more you worked the less you made. Health insurance rates went up and then went to major medical. All holiday parties and picnics were cut. Small department ones took their place. New and more work handed down, no advancement options, no raises again. Last couple of years have seen the company walk employees out in a single day, as job positions or divisions were cut. Company has so many Directors and VP's that they are beginning to outnumber the number of workers. It is sad, it really is!!
