Great opportunities and great support

Assistant Manager (Current Employee)

I have been working at Barnes & Noble College Bookstores

ProsSenior management is has been there for a long time and are committed to the company. They understand the business in a way that executives from other companies often do not. They provide a great framework from which to draw support and do not bury store management in unnecessary work. They extend an a high level of trust to their managers because they are confident that they have the best talent in the right places. The buyers at BNCB are just phenomenal. It is obvious that they understand their support role in helping you achieve your goals and they really execute on your behalf.

The company recognizes high performers and people who consistently do things the right way. There is plenty of opportunity for internal talent to move up in this company for interested individuals.

ConsHonestly very few cons. Work hours can be horrible during rush periods, but that is balanced out by the very easy schedule during the rest of the year. You are tied to an academic calendar, so you get lots of days off and most campuses get to leave early on Fridays.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep it up. Keep expanding. Keep showing this industry what's next.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
