I worked at Scholastic full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Talented colleagues, a product you can feel good about, very competitive benefits.

Cons

Grossly mismanaged from the top down. HR completely non-supportive. Communication from upper management was disorganized and infrequent.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to the talented people in the middle ranks.

    I worked at Scholastic part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Decent hours, part time work, seasonal work. Its a job.

    Cons

    Management at all level never listen to their employees, ideas or complaints. If your a favorite you keep a job, if not your out the door. If you have any complaints, your out the door. Workplace violence is a problem here in the Charlotte warehouse location but when taken to management 2 days later I had no job. The troubled employee has intimidated employees to the point they quit, threatened the lives of employees, physically fought with an employee and threatened me. All I wanted to do was to work hard for the company and have a job. I think this company should not be allowed in our school systems. Stop wasting tax payor money fighting the courts over the 3.8 million dollars you owed in taxes and pay up. It's in the news, read about it. Company is going down hill fast.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come down from your upper management positions away from your desk. Look and listen to employees. Re-organize your company from the ground up. Start with your management, then the CEO.
