Former Employee - Course Materials Manager in Chicago, IL
Former Employee - Course Materials Manager in Chicago, IL

I worked at Follett full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

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

Cons

Since 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

Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO
