Long relationship, little payoff

Course Materials Manager (Former Employee) Chicago, IL

ProsExcellent health care packages
Home office communicates regularly with stores to achieve a baseline knowledge of the industry

ConsSince textbooks are a dying industry, there is little financial growth and consequently little room for advancement
Plethora of part-time positions available sporadically about 4 months of the year during busy seasons after which you're unlikely to be scheduled more than 10 hours a week
Excessive micromanagement
Home office communicates entirely too much
The store management's outlook ranged from average to frustrated

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Pros: Pay is average for the position however the work load is much higher. As sales decline company is eliminating positions so workload is shifting… Cons: Although the company indicates they care about the education of college students, they are only focused on their bottom line. They want to implement… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
