I have been working at Barnes & Noble

Pros

The people who work here are great. Management is helpful and patient; fellow employees are fun, and most cutomers are really chill.

Cons

Baristas here are worth so much more than minimum wage. It's extremely fast paced, and trust me, they deserve every penny.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please give us higher pay and more time off. Everybody is completely drained after just four hours of work, and more pay raises are deserved by everyone.

    Pros

    They are willing to let you have off for personal days and are very good at working around your other schedules.

    Cons

    Lots of drama. Give promotions to undeserving people. Would rather give a promotion to someone in the in crowd or someone that has no idea what they're doing rather then give it to someone who has been there awhile.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would say to make sure your managers are doing what they're supposed to and not making things look like they're supposed to always look only when you are coming in to the store.

    Pros

    - Friendliest team of coworkers and management I've ever worked with
    - Engaging work, always something to do
    - Knowledgeable managers
    - Nice discount
    - Customers are generally friendly and understanding

    Cons

    - Head manager is relatively new to the store, but already is somewhat abusive to employees and customers, isn't knowledgeable, and pressures us to sell Memberships and capture emails (IE berate the customer with annoying questions). When we do sell, we don't receive praise.
    - Pressure to sell memberships that are NOT a good deal, and the customer can tell.
    - Even with prior work experience, I'm getting paid barely above minimum wage

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to who is chosen for management and their performance
