    I worked at Barnes & Noble part-time (More than a year)


    They were very flexible when it came to hours and the discounts on books were great.


    Typical things you have to deal with when working a retail job. Customers doing gross things to the bathrooms, etc.

    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Barnes & Noble.


    Applied online. They called me the next day for an interview the day after that. The interviewer went through a list of pre-made questions on a paper. The usual stuff, like why do you want to work there, how did you deal with unhappy customers in your previous job. They told me they would call the next day either way, never did.
