Small store, chill manager, awesome co-workers.

ProsGreat first job to learn customer service skills both in store and over the phone, 20% discount on textbooks, flexible (but plenty) hours.

ConsThe small space in our store made organizing books a bit difficult, and the store can't really handle more than fifteen-twenty people in our shelf aisles.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
