I worked in the prortland branch as an order picker, other than a very hectic summer, the schedule is swing shift select orders for the next days production, hard work but relaxed atmosphere. Would definitely recommend those looking for work.
Packer (Former Employee) – Jefferson City, MO – January 2, 2018
A typical day at work could be stressful but when you fin a groove it becomes much easier. I learned different technics to find books faster to put inside the box , which increased my speed tremendously. the work place culture was pretty clean, and the mangers took pride and making sure we kept are work area clean. the hardest part at first was searching for what area the particular book is in. the hardest part of the job became the most enjoyable after I got the technics down.

Planning Clerk II (Former Employee) – Jefferson City, MO – December 14, 2017
I was very well paid while working for this company however I feel discriminated against because when new management took over me and other employees jobs were eliminated for no reason given to us. I still have not found a job that paid as well or has had the same benefits.
Packer (Current Employee) – Nebraska – December 8, 2017
A typical day would be filling the cases with books for the school book fairs. It can be stressful at time because you have to go look for different books and you have to go fast to meet your fairs. The people are nice to be with
They have fun activites and somethimes free lunches
Book fair coordinator assistant/ warehouse (Former Employee) – Auburn, WA – November 27, 2017
Start early but they were very understanding if you had to leave for family reasons. I learned shipping receiving there how to pack orders and a lot of customer service there. My boss before I left was very nice and understand and a great listener. It was a great place to work but the pay wasn't so goo.
A great workplace, especially for seasonal or temp work!
Editor (Former Employee) – 557 Broadway – November 25, 2017
As a consultant for the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards, it was my duty to critically read hundreds of pieces of creative writing, which I would then select from, concise, & organize into an anthology. Scholastic had given me opportunities to speak at major events before but even moreso as I was the editor of their 2017 anthology. The staff and young writers I corresponded with created a very respectful, organized, and easy-going work environment. One of the most enjoyable parts of working with Scholastic is being able to meet and sit with the creative legacy of people who still make contributions the Alliance.

Business Manager (Former Employee) – New York, NY – November 8, 2017
New York Office is very cut throat, No training or mentoring provided. I need to learn everything on my own. New Jersey office is laid back no real possibilty of losing your job. There in no real job growth.
