Current Employee - Assistant Store Manager in Philadelphia, PA

I have been working at Barnes & Noble full-time (less than an year)

Pros

They have well developed systems and really know their business. They also seem to really care about their employees and are able drive business and key metrics in a responsible way. B&N probably has some of the smartest sales associate out there who's loyalty and love for books benefits the customers on a daily basis. I also feel it is an exciting time at B&N with their digital products and feel they have a very bright future a head.

Cons

Because they have such a loyal team turn over is less than most big retailers. This make advancement challenging.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep pushing the envelope and continue to grow the B&N community. (More on that later)

    I worked at Barnes & Noble part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    A generally lovely work environment with a lot of variety.

    Cons

    The emphasis on membership sales can often interfere with work performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the booksellers have more direct involvement with merchandizing. They are all big readers, and you would see sales jump significantly if they felt that they had more input on display content.
