    I worked at Half Price Books full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The discount and the health insurance are great-- so are the quarterly bonuses and the sick/vacation days.

    Cons

    The people are some of the most miserable people that I have ever had the misfortune of working with. Hazing is something seems to be encouraged by the management, even though they do everything in their power to appear to be following corporate rules down to the brass tacks. No one can make $558.35 per pay period and survive. They make you work your fingers to the bone for every cent of that money, too. Hours are never set, and some nights you will close and 11:00 p.m., only to open at 8:00 a.m. the next morning. It is a joke to work there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Loosen up and stop writing up employees for every little infraction. Give out steady hours. Be kind rather than threatening. And, for the love of all that is good, stop treating employees in training as though they should have memorized every detail of company policy.
