Warehouse Worker (Current Employee), Lake Mary, FLFebruary 19, 2014
A typical day is go in pull packing list off board and pack cases for the packing list that you have. There is a first and second wave. You might have more cases to pack on one wave then the other, sometimes you might have to help somebody else and also you have to make sure books are not damage neither is the case or headers. Sometimes you have to – more... go and help ups out with book orders that needs to be pulled.I have learned a lot at Scholastic and the workers their are friendly and helpful. The hardest part is when a case is mess up with different books that isn't in you area no you have to take the time out to take all the books out of your case and put them in the box which now slows you down with the number of cases per hour. The most enjoyable part of the day is knowing that I have pack cases or pulled book orders for the kids and/or teachers to be able to purchase to read. – less

Stocker P1 (Former Employee), Nashville, TNFebruary 6, 2014
Pros: free lunch every now and again
Cons: two breaks a day
Scholastic Books Fairs gave me a wonderful chance to work. I have been there for three years. I would clock at 8am and leave at 3pm. I started attended T.S.U while I was on first shift. I asked to be moved to second shift and it work out perfectly. The hardest part about this job is picking up where other people left off. My co worker were all older – more... than me. I most enjoy when kids come to the store and i get to put smiles on their faces. – less

Scholastic Book Fairs was a good job. Woking from home really teaches you how to manage your time.
Inside Sales Consultant (Former Employee), Clinton, MAJanuary 29, 2014
Pros: working from home and ability to balance home life / work
Cons: short breaks and not great health care benefits
My day was filled with phones and tracking orders. But I worked from home and it was agood learning lesson to manage my time. I loved speaking with the techers and the mos that volunteered for the bbok fairs. helping them with the inventory and their school summer reading lists. I think the hardest aprt of my job was not disappointing the schools incase – more... Scholastic was sold out of a title or when I had been working to wi a school back and just when i thought they were going to book , they didn't. It was disappointing but I had great access to my co workers thought email or IM. It was easy to stay in touch with my co workers. They were a great resource.

I was in charge of over 400 book fairs in Middlesex County. I had the largest revenue increase in the country. I also still hold the record at Scholastic Book Fairs with the most winback at 50. – less

Order line Operator (Former Employee), Jefferson City, MODecember 11, 2013
Pros: they had a lot of health fairs and giveways and good health benefits.
Cons: the breaks and lunches for very strict, bathroom breaks were stict as well.
I would come in sign in to the computer and either start taking phone calls or typing in orders. I learned how to answer multiple phone calls, key in orders through the data base. Management was good, they had 2 to 3 managers on the floor during peak hours. Co-workers we nice and I think they were most helpful with any questions I had. The hardest part – more... of my job was I feel like I was not trained for the job I was hired for. When I would ask questions to the managers they would become irritated with me first before even hearing what my questions was. I enjoyed talking to the costumers and helping them with their orders. – less
