Amazing place to Volunteer
Volunteer (Current Employee), Auburn, WAJuly 3, 2014
Pros: free books for volunteering
Cons: time drags when business is slow
A typical day would involve helping people who work with and enjoy books. The majority of the customers are usually teachers, librarians, parents, and students. You will learn bookfair setup, marketing, how to run a point of sale machine, popular book titles, and book reading levels. There will be a scholastic representative on site to answer questions, – more... but the majority of your peers are also volunteers. You will see familiar faces because most volunteers come back year after year, they are treated well. – less

I enjoyed working with the schools and parent organizations, believed in the mission, but management style is awful. You never feel appreciated.
Field Sales Representative and Sales Consultant (Former Employee), Olympia, WAJune 15, 2014
Pros: working with customers, co-workers and being home in the evenings and weekends.
Cons: lack of respect, constant pressure and stress, lack of appreciation
Originally began as inside sales and had a wonderful Sales Manager who cared about his people. Then he was let go and it was never the same. Management style from the top down only cares about the numbers and you never feel appreciated, whether you're hitting your numbers or not. I enjoyed my co-workers and enjoyed working with my schools. After almost – more... 2 years, I moved to a field position and it was better than being in the little cubicle in the office, but again, you never really felt appreciated. – less

It was high school, what more needs to be said?
Data Entry & Basic Electronics (Former Employee), Spencerport, NYJune 12, 2014
As with any school there are cliques, teachers who do & do not really teach, lunches are horrid, mass produced food items.
All in all it was no better, nor worse then any expectations or others experiences.

Great company, Leader in the publishing industry
Territory Sales (Current Employee), Misssissippi/Louisiana/AlabamaJune 12, 2014
Pros: work with some great people and get to make a difference in the lives of kids.
Cons: poor management
My day starts by with my territory plan; calling on schools and district offices and various outside agencies throughout my territory. I have learned how to manage my time and work effectively with very little supervision. I have had 18 bosses over the years. The management structure is very broken. I have some great co - workers the are my friends – more... as well as colleagues. The hardest part of my job is spending so much time away from my family. The best part of my job is providing solutions to a school or school district and seeing the impact it has on the children..... and that's what really matters!!! – less

Overall good company to work for. If you are ok with doing the same thing everyday this company is great. No room for real advancement. Summers off if your a Sales Consultant. Great group of co-workers. Not a lot of men employed.
