I worked at Follett full-time (More than a year)

Pros

It's incredibly easy and it's a bookstore so the clientele isn't that bad. They work around your school schedule so it's a great job if you're a student. Employees get 10% off text books.

Cons

It's incredibly easy. When it's not Rush or Buyback season your hours will get cut. Also the books are much more expensive than if you bought them online. So be prepared to listen to some complaining.

Advice to Management

Train the temps better. Don't over hire. Don't try and rip off customers. If they can buy a MyMathLab for $30 cheaper at Walmart there's a problem.

    I have been working at Follett part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people that work there are nice. The goals of the company are in the right direction. Their integrity is very good. Their "follett values" are a very smart marketing technique to employees.

    Cons

    I don't like the prices that they charge. They are very steep and the value that people get is not very high. I do not like their buyback system because they do not give you enough back for what you spent.
