Typical warehouse

Sorter (Current Employee)
Reno, NV (US)

I have been working at Baker & Taylor full-time for more than a year

ProsIncentives are really good if you work for it. You work independently and plenty of work.

ConsOf course being a warehouse, no AC and hot summers. I wish there were fans for each station and not as hot of lights during the night.

not for me

CLS (Former Employee)
Momence, IL (US)

I worked at Baker & Taylor full-time for less than a year

ProsEasy to get in, above min wage

Consno notice overtime one day, then sent home early the next. Very repetitive, secluded with no social interaction most of the day. If your not on the supervisors good side, be ready to be bullied and crying. It seems like A LOT of people come and go from this company. There's a reason why. 6-2:30 was too early for me, but CLS is only on that shift.

Advice to Senior ManagementLook into your supervisors/workers. Ask opinions. Happy workers make happy customers which make money.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Great employees, but favoritism is big

General Employee (Former Employee)
Reno, NV (US)

I worked at Baker & Taylor full-time for more than 5 years

ProsYou can make an okay wage for this day and age and there is an incentive program. Most of the management team is fun.

ConsCompany isn't as stable as it used to be due to the poor economy and the advances of digital technology. Most of management has been there for many years and has their favorite people. Not a whole lot of room for advancement.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe fair. Smile. Most of all, be fair.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Favoritism at its worst and lack of vision

Senior Network Engineer (Former Employee)
Bridgewater, NJ (US)

I worked at Baker & Taylor full-time for less than a year

ProsI can't think of any, I was looking for a new job within two weeks of starting there and glad I got out!

ConsWhere do I start, filthy office, broken desk furniture and the favoritism I saw between a director and a direct report/manager was unbelievable it was like watching a master and his puppy dog!

I worked in technology and any suggestions on improvement are met with a resounding NO simply because my manager (the puppy dog) and his boss didn't understand the technology, plus how could you challenge what they did in the past?

I was a full time salaried employee however I felt I was treated like an hourly employee.

Advice to Senior ManagementDump all the middle managers and directors, *maybe* that'll help you get things straightened out but I doubt it.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
