- RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
I have been working at Baker & Taylor full-time (More than a year)
Flexible work hours. You can buy books, DVD's and CD's at a discount. The people are great to work with and there are some people in key positions that are very good
Cut hours during the slow season. Mostly summer time. They tell you one hour before if you're working overtime.
Advice to Management
Leadership should be better examples and mentors. But that could only happen with a complete wipe out and replace with new faces & better management skills. Focus on the employee. Create activities to engage us and it doesn't take money; it takes real concern and creativity! But, hopefully I'm not around much longer to see if this happens or not

I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Baker & Taylor (Sacramento, CA) in July 2015.
The District Manager contacted me soon after I filled out my application - within 2 days. We met at the location where the job would be. She was very professional. After discussing my work experiences, and discussing the job details, including wage, we walked around the store so I could have a better understanding of operations. After, we spoke a little on a personal level about our families, and said our goodbyes. She said she would contact me that afternoon after she conducted more interviews.
