Solution Tree – Why Work For Us?


For Solution Tree employees, the job isn’t just a job—it’s a commitment to help others. Our business model features three distinct elements: educational publishing, events, and professional development, all designed to help teachers, principals, school boards, and administrators do their very best. This passion for our purpose inspires everyone at Solution Tree to give their maximum effort every day. But we know that work-life balance is important. When the workday is done, employees head home satisfied that they’ve made a difference.

“Do what you love, and you’ll never work a day in your life,” the saying goes. At Solution Tree, doing what you love is part of every day. Our Press uses a double-blind review process and meticulous editorial standards to ensure that our books are of the highest quality. Our professional development team works with authors and consultants, booking more than 4,000 speaker engagements a year. Our events team organizes dozens of high-quality institutes and workshops for educators across the country and around the world. Supported by sales, marketing, finance, customer service, and technology specialists, team members find plenty to love in each day’s activities.

Stability is important in an uncertain economy. In a time when more and more employers are making do with less and less, Solution Tree is committed to profitable growth. For our employees, this means competitive salaries, raises, employer-subsidized insurance, a strong 401(k) program, family benefits, paid holidays and vacations, and generous bonuses. Company retreats and departmental lunches with the CEO add to the benefits.

Solution Tree employees are part of a community. We frequently offer our time to worthwhile causes like Habitat for Humanity, and all employees are invited to spend one workday each year as a paid day of service for a qualifying local organization. Our internship program gives high school and college students the experience of working side by side with staff—and pays them for their efforts. Employees are invited to attend our professional events and encouraged to apply for positions throughout the company, to keep them challenged and engaged.

Our Bloomington, Indiana headquarters is a beautiful place to work, located in the historic Showers Brothers Furniture administration building. This two-story glass-and-brick structure once housed the manufacturer that made more than 60% of all the furniture in the United States. Today, the property is in the center of an expanding tech park, walking distance to downtown stores and restaurants, the B-Line hiking trail, and Indiana University. Employees enjoy free parking next to the building, and on pleasant days, team members can be found on the building’s rooftop patio, enjoying an outdoor lunch or a department gathering.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Solution Tree (Bloomington, IN) in September 2015.

    Interview

    My whole interviewing experience was wonderful from HR to the hiring managers. The company has a very transparent and open culture and I love what they are doing to help educators.
    The HR manager was very pleasant and easy to talk to. The time frame was a little long, but I understand when there are multiple people interviewing, schedules don't always allow for a tight time frame.
    Although I didn't get the position I applied for, I understand they are looking for the right person with the best attributes to fulfill the role. It will help me to polish my attributes so I may have the opportunity to be a part of their company.
