    Kennedy Bookstore Review

    Textbook Department Associate (Current Employee)

    ProsManagement is extremely flexible with your work hours. The type of work done is not all that demanding.

    ConsThey pay is minimum wage. Some managers have very poor attitudes toward the associates. Sometimes the job can be boring.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe manager in charge has great leadership abilities and is very effective at her job. Some of the middle management needs to do a better job at treating others with respect.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
