Way too stressful for a part-time job

Barista, Cashier, Bookseller, Nookseller (Former Employee) Riverside, CA

Pros- friendly co-workers
- discounts on books and cafe!
- great experience for retail and food
- paid every Friday !

Cons- managers overworked their employees
-There is no room for growth opportunities to move up
- seniors play favorites
- customers are sometimes not treated respectfully
- managers don't listen to their employees
- stressful
- lack of respect
- only hire girls

Advice to Senior ManagementManagers place a very high expectations on their employees--making them work hard for less pay. Employees make mistakes too, we're not perfect, but we should not be constantly reminded of our mistakes, and not recognize all the hard work and effort. There is a huge lack of respect in employees from their managers.

    Easy if you don't mind exploiting customers, destroying your own business, and living off Ramen

    Part Time Book Seller (Former Employee) Seattle, WA

    I worked at Barnes & Noble


    Pros: - Intelligent and friendly coworkers - Very lenient dress code - Ample paid vacation and sick days - Usually not very busy, since Amazon and nook are destroying… Cons: Keep in mind the company has changed over the past few years, so this review would have been much more positive if written in 2008.… Advice to Senior Management: I honestly don't think you care at this point, since no one would run a company like this if they expected it to still exist… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
