    I have been working at Barnes & Noble College Bookstores part-time

    Pros

    Discounts are great, hours and flexible and manager will work with you. Good coworkers, everybody knows how to do anything, and they are always willing to share what they know.

    Cons

    Pay sucks, but thats minimum wage. though it does say that the only reason they dont pay you less is because they are not allowed to.
