Completely unstable workforce, even the permanent employees. Management was a revolving door too. If Scholastic fixed this issue, and paid the permanent employees better than minimum wage, it would have been nearly perfect. I worked there for three years in customer service and shipiing and love the job itself.

Urine test. Im an order clerk and started through a temp service almost 4 yrs ago. The temp sevice did a U. A. And then when i got hired full time permanently 4 months later, then scholastics did a U.A.
Have been there almost 4 years and haven't had to do another since. Different positions though, have different requirements i believe. And also if you somehow get injured on the job to where a report needs filed, then a U.A. is required then too.
