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

Pros

Barnes & Noble is a great company to work for if you are a high school or college student. With flexibility and a cool work atmosphere, if you love books then this is for you.

Cons

Barnes & Noble has been late with the ebook market. They are playing catch up with Amazon's Kindle, and their business is suffering because of that.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management should take a more understanding approach to booksellers and leads. There is no room for theory X management in a laid back bookstore environment.

    Store management needs to check the various sections more often to make sure that they are to ISO standards.
