unproductive and unstable
Accountant (Former Employee), Lincoln, NEApril 30, 2015
Pros: some of the people
Cons: Upper management, money management, no process, poor health insurance, and the bills don't get paid on time.
The culture is unknown. Management is extremely disconnected with what is happening, or their teams are unaware of what the goals are. In either case, communication is very lacking.

Run away as fast as you can
Accountant (Former Employee), Lincoln, NEAugust 21, 2014
Pros: the warehouse employees are super nice, along with closer co-workers
Cons: management, micromanaged, stability is scary
The management at this company are in place because upper management liked them. It doesn't matter if they should be managers or are good with people. The management puts you down and nit picks everything. This was such a horrible experience for me that I couldn't even make it to my goal of a year to build my resume. My manager micromanaged by email. Denied my vacation requests. Very Do as I say not as I do mentality. Managers are not on the same page. You feel like you are running around in circles and getting nothing accomplished and are always behind.

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 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.

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 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.

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 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.
