Data entry, customer service (Current Employee) – Neosho, MO – September 24, 2016
Great place to work but need more permanent position that is full time. Typical day I take orders over the phone. Management and co-workers are very helpful and kind. Enjoy the pay and the way they work from home opportunity.
They don't appear to be big on team work or cross training. Felt like a very silo environment. People are slow to respond to emails and manager didn't read his emails. Moving more towards a cloud based environment. Best part of the job was the location and hours. The New Jersey office shares space with the NBA who set up a ping pong table, a foosball table and basketball games in the atrium of the building.
Warehouse (Current Employee) – Denver, CO – August 10, 2016
This place is an amazing place to work. The supervisors are awesome and friendly. The work is easy once you get to understand the process. And the rest of the staff are all like family: very welcoming and open.
Order picker (Former Employee) – Connecticut – August 10, 2016
I've worked for this company in the past and to be honest it was not that great. The pay is minimum wage and they overwork you for cr***y pay. They don't utilize the skills and experience that you may have working in a warehouse. You basically are stuck picking orders even if you have more experience doing other things. It is a temporary job. You only get one 15 min. break that's it. Management yells at you and treats you like dirt. This job is good for a college student or someone who needs a little extra cash from a temporary job. If you have a current job and are looking for a temporary second job. Forget it. They will not work with you or accommodate your other job. You would be better off driving for uber or something. Dry and dusty environment so be prepared to get dirty.
Good for someone in between jobs.
Cra**y pay, do not utilize your skills, only one 15 min. break, will not work around another job.
Great job for the money but not for the stress level.
Implementation Specialist (Current Employee) – St. Charles, IL – August 6, 2016
This company is a good one to work for if you need a good paying job and benefits but your daily stress level will sky rocket with the amount of micro-management that is allowed to happen in this branch of scholastic. Not my best 'corporate' experience.
Driver (Former Employee) – Syracuse, NY – July 30, 2016
The "boss" at the Syracuse branch will call you multiple times during the day, call you at home, call you on the weekends. Micromanaging every single aspect of everything. It's a great job other than the boss.
When you interview you dont know this is a hard core sales job. Your performance is based on uncontrollable circumstances. Salary in interview is promised to be more than make, and it takes approximately a year to get the hang of the job.
The work is terrible. The management team is horrible. It's all about who you know, you can work for ten years and still be looked at like a kid coming outta high shool working his first job. I wouldn't recommend anyone to work here unless you bout to be homeless!! It's that bad. They don't care about you at all. To be honest it's modern day slavery.
General Labor Clerk (Temporary) (Former Employee) – Fresno, CA – July 13, 2016
I worked with them as a temp for about 2 months. They said they would try to hire me and never got back in contact with me after calling me in to fill out an application in person. I was sent a generated email that the position was filled on April Fools Day. Most of the co-workers also seemed negative. And the manager for some reason thought it was okay to tell me he disliked most of his team.
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) – Jefferson City, MO – July 7, 2016
Needs air conditioning. Needs to work on management. Other than that a decent place to work. Work can get repetitive. And they move you around alot. Mangment doesn't always inform the employees of changes going on.
Good hours, pay, benifits
No Air Conditioning and lots of walking, Strict and Managament
Warehouse Employee (Current Employee) – Caledonia, MI – June 6, 2016
A typical day of work might consist of packing and assigning fairs. Ability to stand for 8 hours and lift 25+ pounds repetitively each day is required. Fun work atmosphere with flexible schedule options. Pay and average work hours are minimal, usually just a seasonal position for about 8 months of the year.
Merchandiser (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – June 6, 2016
I love working for Scholastic Book Fairs! I visit the schools that are assigned to me and teach them how to run, set up, merchandise, and restock their book fairs, it is a perpetual book party for 9 months.
Technology Manager (Current Employee) – New York, NY – June 4, 2016
The executives in the technology team instill a horrible culture. Working in other parts of Scholastic may be different but if you work for Technology, you will be challenged by values instilled in those above you. Individuals remain because of long-term commitment from previous management that existed. Sadly, the organization i no longer a great place to work with continued outsourcing, a CIO that not approachable and top technology Executives that amust be highly paid to tolerate this behavior and push down onto their staff members.
