    Frantic, corporate, and rigid- my love for books did not help me overcome the desire to run out the door.

    I worked at Barnes & Noble part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    If you love books and want to be first to learn about what's new, or if your into e- readers, you'll like that perk.

    Cons

    It's a VERY regimented work environment. Very corporate feel, and micromanaged. Your breaks are scheduled, you call the manager at the beginning of your break to let them know you're going. There are also 'training' tests you're expected to complete each day, but it's up to you to find time to do them, and there's never time to do them. Add to that, nearly everyone works part-time. No benefits. While the pay is a little above minimum wage, the hours make for some very small paychecks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Loosen up. Pay your employees more. 9 out of 10 are working there because they love being in a bookstore.
