Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at Follett full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Excellent health care packages
Home office communicates regularly with stores to achieve a baseline knowledge of the industry

Cons

Since textbooks are a dying industry, there is little financial growth and consequently little room for advancement
Plethora of part-time positions available sporadically about 4 months of the year during busy seasons after which you're unlikely to be scheduled more than 10 hours a week
Excessive micromanagement
Home office communicates entirely too much
The store management's outlook ranged from average to frustrated

    Great company culture, and training program.

    The industry is unpredictable, so at any point you could lose your job if the university or college decides to go with a different company to manage the campus bookstore,
