    Pros

    I love Barnes and Noble as a company. Working there exposed me to new books and allowed me to share my love of books with customers whether through friendly conversations, recommendations, or other forms of assistance.

    Cons

    The managers weren't always understanding of my school commitments even though I was extremely forthcoming about the fact that law school was my number 1 priority when I applied. In offering me the job, they assured me that I would have plenty of time around finals to study (your only grades in law school for most classes come from a single final exam), and I did not feel like that was honored when finals rolled around.

    Advice to Management

    Be realistic with what employees can expect. If our circumstances don't mesh well with what is expected, tell us so we can find another arrangement and don't end up stressing out unnecessarily at a very important time in our lives.
