    Former Employee - Web Producer in New York, NY

    I worked at Scholastic full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    There were lots of complaints about management when I was there, but I honestly thought the management was fairly strong-- decent guidance without micromanaging, yearly performance reviews, etc. The opportunity to work on fun kid's content is a bonus. It's corporate, but there is room for creativity.

    Cons

    Constantly shifting priorities and strategies made it challenging-- although I wouldn't say it was any worse than most organizations.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Scholastic in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    Submitted application through my college's career website and came in for a group interview the following week. Was asked to submit a copy-editing test over the course of a few days. After mailing this in I was invited back for a one-on-one interview and received an offer in a few days.
