Technical Manager | Lake Mary, FL | Apr 14, 2021
You don't matter
The NYC people don't care about anything but their image, they don't care if what they do is better for Scholastic or anything. If you join accept to be laid off if you have more than 7 years of experience or a life-altering medical condition.
Prosa good purpose to what you do
Consbad management

A family atmosphere with plenty of opportunity for growth
Simply stated, Scholastic is an amazing company to work for. The CEO is approachable and works as hard as ever. This company is on the rise relative to competitors and I'm happy to be a part of it.

Fun but with no commitment
I only did tempt work here. Met some great people here but again no opportunities for permanent employment. I would recommend for young people looking to begin a career.

Digital Designer | New York, NY | Jun 5, 2017
Fast Paced, Stressful
Enjoy the design part of working there and also leaning different parts of the job. The disliked at work was the fast pace and the amount of work to turn around.
ProsFun people.
ConsNo vacations paid days.

Data Specialist | Manhattan, NY | Aug 15, 2014
Children literacy put first
While my day to day work revolved around image licensing and procedural compliance, in the office it was always apparent that we were striving towards one goal: children's literacy. The mission was to create products that were first and foremost educational. It was assumed that once a product reached a desired level of character all the rest would naturally fall into place. For this reason creativity and innovation were embraced and fostered. This is not to say Scholastic did not have its fair share of hiccups and blindspots (as a $2 billion a year company it is impossible not to) but at the end of the day you always knew you were fighting the good fight and the company was there to support that.
ProsAtmosphere, employees, products, facilities
Conspublishing industry in decline, trying to embrace the future of publshing

Field Sales Representative | Olympia, WA | Jun 15, 2014
I enjoyed working with the schools and parent organizations, believed in the mission, but management style is awful. You never feel appreciated.
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 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.
ProsWorking with customers, co-workers and being home in the evenings and weekends.
ConsLack of respect, constant pressure and stress, lack of appreciation

Im bias
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.

Field Sales Representative | Cranbury, NJ | Apr 26, 2018
Only good for flexible schedule
Unprofessional management. Decisions based on county wide initiatives instead of local regions. Great flexibility in schedule but pay is not conducive with hours worked.
ProsFlexibility
ConsManagement, no advancement

If you were in charge, what would you do to make Scholastic a better place to work?
Asked Apr 27, 2017
I would hire a warehouse supervisor who can put his or her pride aside and be open to listening to the workers issues. A warehouse supervisor who is able to strategize and have his or her team leads strategize. As simple as the job seems there still needs to be strategy…a plan. A warehouse supervisor who can put the puzzle piece together at all odds. One who will ask the workers who have been there for 15-20 years "What would make your job better?" or “What areas do we need to improve in?"

Why did you leave your job at Scholastic?
Asked Mar 17, 2017
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.
Answered Oct 3, 2018
Supervisor had a horrible temper... Not a stable job. Seasonal only... Huge turnover rate... A lot of hard work for minimal pay.. Should be paid more for all the work they put you through.. No chance of advancing in the company.
