    I have been working at Follett Educational Services as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    As a contract employee, wages were good for summer work, management seemed to listen to suggestions, but took a long time to implement recommendations. During summer, provided Gatorade during hot days in warehouse, and for safety rewards, lunches were given to employees.

    Cons

    Impossible to be hired on into management by company as a contract employee, could, possibly be hired as regular employee if opening occurred (rarely the case). Positions are unionized, busy season (summer) is HOT within warehouse, overtime is required, providing little work/life balance in summer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take advice of contract managers in the removal and hiring of personnel quicker.
