    I have been working at ScholarBuys full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone works well as a team and we always bounce ideas off each other. The office is an open environment and the team is fun to work with. Every day is different and it is great to have the ability to be creative in my work. Your daily tasks are your responsibility to work on independently with guidance from management. The office is a bonus too with views of the river and a beautiful interior with lots of windows. The windows help if you aren't someone who likes being inside all day. You will continue to progress with pay, time off, and responsibilities if you prove yourself.

    Cons

    Not too many cons besides sitting majority of day, but that's expected. Sometimes the office is quiet, but we play music which is nice.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to provide feedback and communicate new developments in the office.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ScholarBuys (Carpentersville, IL) in December 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was in two parts. The first I interviewed with the cofounders and operations manager separately and the last interview was a group interview. Questions weren't too difficult. Most were about my experiences, how I handle situations/tasks, and why I am interested in the position.
