good company to work for, however you do ALOT for the little you are paid - Administrative Assistant Scholastic Employee Review

      job security, fun people to work with for the most part


      no advancement at branch locations, pay is based on merit, not on job performance. A substandard peer doesn't have to work hard and can still receive more than you.

          Staff is wonderful, lots of creative and talented people who put their whole heart into their work. Unlimited sick days is amazing for mental health, and their general PTO is also decent.


          You can be suddenly shifted to a new project at any time, with very little warning. The deadlines for those projects can also be extreme, so be prepared for lots of crying in your open-office cubicle (or at your at-home desk, I moved several states away just to be able to work from home permanently after COVID showed me how much better it is to not have open office). There are also plenty of upper management people who are unpleasant if not downright abusive. Given that, there's not much room in my mind for career advancement, because anything above my current position would put me into greater contact with said upper management. Also, they'll never give you a raise or promote you unless you threaten to leave.

        Based on your experience, what preceded the job offer email: have you received that relatively fast, or you’ve been waiting in silence? For how long?



        Had an interview today and at the end recruiter asked if I was interviewing with another company I was honest and said yes I currently have an offer already with another company. Should I have said that? Worried it may hurt my chances with the interview process going forward.



        Many people are getting ghosted during the interview process these days so I started to track companies that regularly ghost. Let me know if you could see this being helpful during your job search!
