Follett Higher Education Group
Bookstore Manager

There is nothing like a college book store, we love them and hate them all at once. They are the Walmart of the college campus. As a retail store manager of two different bookstores my mission was to provide top quality customer service to students who came in looking for quality merchandise to show pride in the institution and those who begrudgingly had to spend more than they wanted on textbooks.
