I worked at Baker & Taylor full-time for more than a year

Pros

If you like overtime, they have their fair share. Book and video discounts. Good bonus for good work.

Cons

Overtime is mandatory and without notice. You have to keep records of your work to fight for your bonus. They have a manager who screams in your face and no one stops her. No union to help you.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Fire her if you don't know who she is just ask. I have been away for over 2 years and she is still sending employees home in tears. Most employees will take overtime if offered, unless they have no sitter ready or a wedding to go to. So, make it a request first.
