I worked at Barnes & Noble College Bookstores full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

-Great discounts on merchandise, textbooks, trade books, and more
-Good co-workers but it depends on which department you work in
-Convenient while I was in college

Cons

-No advancement, even when you are qualified to perform higher level jobs
-horrible pay for the workload
-low morale
-Store managers only care about themselves and not the hourly workers
-Assistant managers are doing the job of the department manager but never receive fair compensation for hard work
-25 cent raises per year
-high turnover rate

This is just to name a few....there are so many worse things I could say

Advice to ManagementAdvice

-Create a strategic plan to increase employee moral; worker performance levels will always be low if people hate coming to their job
-Acknowledge and fairly compensate workers who are actually doing great at their jobs and provide opportunities for advancement to those workers
