    I worked at Ambassador College Bookstores full-time

    Pros

    This company is excellent to work for and cares a lot about their employees. They are very supportive and have excellent communication. The pay is good for the hours that you work.

    Cons

    You basically work by your self all day so you have to be self motivated but I was OK with that.

  2.  

    Alot of hard work for the salary.

    I have been working at Ambassador College Bookstores full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The age difference of the employees. Most of them are good responsible workers and do a good job.

    Cons

    Alot of employees are not contributing to the overall work atmosphere. They do only what they have to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start treating the new employees better. Start getting rid of or disciplining the dead weight of some of the employees who have been there for awhile. Start training newer employees to be able to do all functions of the work areas.

    great coworkers, easy commute, job was easy

    rampant nepotism, expensive medical, antiquated computers, mandatory unpaid overtime

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiding in the office and observe what happens in the trenches. Some presence and appreciation goes a long way.
