I have been working at Better World Books full-time (More than 3 years)
Pay increase finally! Lots of new hires is helping. Good management. New hires seem to be better than before. HR is not hiring just anyone anymore.
Dirty books coming down the line. Working on holidays. I would like to learn more than just scanning. Need longer breaks.
Advice to Management
Tell us what’s going on. We see people in the building and lots of meetings happening.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Better World Books (Mishawaka, IN) in August 2016.
Typical interview - phone interview with HR, then phone interview with upper management, then an in person with upper management. Lots of time commitment for the interviews so be prepared for that. It was very clear during the group interview that management was not in sync on what they were looking for in the role. One person had needs that were clearly not in the plans for another person. I pulled my application from consideration based on the inconsistencies I saw with the people I would be reporting to and working with. If you want to work for a company with a conscience for social responsibility, this could be your dream workplace. However, if you want to work in an environment where plans and ideas are clearly being communicated and enacted upon from the top down, I would not recommend this company based on my experience.
