    Pros

    Working in the IT department is a great opportunity for those interested in the IT career. It is also easy to climb the rankings however, the higher you go the harder it becomes to climb.

    Cons

    If you are given a technician job be sure to work, work and work. The calls almost never stop.

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to help those who are smart and confident in their jobs. Utilize their talent to better the help desk.

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling interesting work environment

    Cons

    Most all positions are part time to avoid benefits. Hours vary drastically month to month

    Advice to Management

    Too much capital spending has occurred in the past decade going towards beautification and exponential growth but you are not investing in your personnel.

    Pros

    This position was a seasonal position so was only minimum wage. The good thing was it provided opportunity to hone customer relations an sales skills. Management was friendly and focused on the heartbeat of the business, providing a fun and stress free environment to work.

    Cons

    Not a lot of opportunity to advance in position or pay on the retail side. The particular store in which I worked minimized operating costs by paying way below the stores national average pay for book sellers (avg: $9.00 vs act: $7.25). Manager was commended by upper management for a well run store within budgeted operation costs. The minimum wage pay allows the manager to increase book seller staff for increased seasonal sales

    Advice to Management

    Pay your long term booksellers much better. This would bode well for retention of your employees and potentially feed Barnes and Nobel with good talent for promotion within.
