It was a chaotic experience as the company was going through a bankruptcy and a lot of turn-over at the C-Suite level.

I have been working at School Specialty full-time for more than a year

Pros

Very nice and dedicated employees, a relaxed work environment, great products, very positive atmosphere, good salary and lots of benefit options.

Cons

Lack of strong corporate leadership and a lot of employee turnover especially at the senior leader level, lack of current research to drive decision making, unclear driving goals and objectives, lack of accountability.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to provide clear direction and stick to that direction.

    I worked at School Specialty as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Great, relaxed place to work (at least in the Art Prep department). There are deadlines, but it isn't difficult to meet the quotas needed. The first job I've had where I've genuinely enjoyed the company of everyone that I worked with at every level.

    Cons

    Vast majority of positions are seasonal, as the bulk of their business happens in the summer. Full time positions are few.

    I have been working at School Specialty full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The company provides paid time off to volunteer at schools. Flexible with you as much as possible.

    Cons

    There are a lot of changes happening. You never know what is going to happen next and makes you uncomfortable in planning your future
