Scholastic Book Fairs-- Systematic, Physical, yet Non-Stressful
Temporary Worker (Former Employee) – Urbandale, IA – June 29, 2018
They are well organized, and each person can work autonomously once trained (great for introverts). The work is physical-- largely packing and unpacking mobile bookcases-- in a warehouse environment, which may get hot or cold depending on the weather. The prevailing atmosphere among employees is a cooperative one. Since book fairs are held primarily during the school year, the work is seasonal.
Inventory Control Specialist (ICS) (Former Employee) – Jefferson City, MO – June 24, 2018
This is a equal opportunity employer. They do hire felons as long as you are honest about what your felonies are when asked on your application. Good pay. Always get 40hrs a week and overtime if you want it. Great benefits for you and your family. Hardest part about the job is being on you feet for 8 to 12 hrs at a time. Other than that every position is fairly easy physical labor. There's also 3 different shifts. Ther factory is always running. Sometimes even on Sundays and holidays in the peak season. Digital books hasn't changed the companies place at all. Very g1od company to work for overall.
Field Representative (Current Employee) – Anaheim, CA – June 21, 2018
I love my job! Great management team. There are some areas that could use improvement - different branches sometimes conflict and make it difficult to meet customer's needs although they seem to be actively working on finding a solution for this.
great mission, great intentions, poor work/life balance
Marketing (Former Employee) – New York, NY – June 6, 2018
The mission is amazing and everyone at this company is devoted to bringing books and literacy to children nationwide. But a strong focus on aggressive revenue goals means that work/life balance suffers.
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) – Lake Mary, FL – May 31, 2018
I worked part time second shift at one of Scholastic's warehouses, pay was about $10/hour and the managment was good. Usually hours were in excess of 20 but less than 40. I have heard that it has gone downhill since I left though.

This is a bias review and should be read as such. My bad experiences may not be the norm. though, I had a number of them. This was a long time ago and things change. I hope they are doing well as a company.
General Manager (Former Employee) – Baton Rouge, LA – May 16, 2018
Scholastic has a very good motive to help more kids read. This was my reason to take the job. But due to travel time it did not work out for me. Upper management was not involved in day to day operations
