    I have been working at Scholastic full-time

    Pros

    Inspiring mission, and some great people if you get to work with them.

    Cons

    When people say the work/life balance is great, what they mean is that people with kids are allowed to work from home a lot and everyone else has to pick up the slack.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people who are motivated and give them room to advance. Don't dole out work-from-home privileges instead of giving people actual raises.

    Anonymous Employee in Robbinsville, NJ
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Scholastic (Robbinsville, NJ).

    Interview

    Operations Manager did not ask me one question. I told him about myself and then he quickly escorted me to the door. He thought I was a dumb truck driver.
