    Great for a student worker, but a dead end for a career.

    I have been working at Follett part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Flexible hours that tailor to student classes, fast friendly environment, discounts on books, clothes and graduation items.

    Cons

    90% temp work - expect short hours and only for 2 weeks. If you become a regular hourly worker get ready to work twice as hard for the bare minimum in wage and hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be proactive in what students want. Also books are the thing of the past and technology needs to be a priority.

    Disorganized and siloed company that lacks a long-term strategy

    I worked at Follett full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Depends on the department and division you work for. Some have good experiences, most do not. Chuck is a good CEO, but there's a lot of work to be done

    Cons

    Low pay, uncooperative environment, favorites are played
