    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Scholastic full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I will give them this; we got our summers off and I had good coworkers for the most part.

    Cons

    Where to even start. Yes, summers off are good and nice people are a plus but the pros of the job will never come close to the cons. This is in no way a job for a young professional. The work place environment is in no way progressive and no matter what they say in the interview there’s hardly any room for growth or advancement in pay. The company itself needs to take a hard look at what they are doing to solve issues that are arising instead of turning everything on the employees. Corporate/ management will try to put a bandaid on some big company issues and frankly some things that go on are a little sketchy. Turn over is very high. I’ll give them that they can do bookfairs decent but other than that it’s a negative work place environment no matter how much you yourself are a positive person. Not worth the time and energy the job takes up because pay is not competitive at all.
