    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Scholastic Book Fairs full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Supportive and caring atmosphere. Everyone shares the common goal to get more kids reading! Employees are also encouraged to read and the company gives everyone an extra 15 minute break specifically to read.

    Cons

    For sales, the commission plan gets changed occasionally when we start to hits goals easier and make more money. Opportunities for career advancement are limited unless one works for the corporate office in Florida.

    Advice to Management

    None. They do a great job of supporting employees, communicating and keeping it fun (for the most part).

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Scholastic Book Fairs (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    Phone and in person local interview. Both interviews were pretty straight forward. Discussed my experience with Book Fairs and gave me more information as to the job expectations. The interviews happened rather quickly after I applied. The salary was discussed up front. Both interviewers were knowledgeable and friendly.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    No salary negotiation, it was set. Hours are somewhat flexible since you set your own appointments so no negotiation was needed.
