Initial low pay. And sometimes the retail environment can get very hectic. Not everyone that works there is friendly so it can be stressful.

    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.

    Pros

    employee relationships, communication, they listen to employee complaints

    Cons

    The managers have a tendency to delegate jobs that they shouldn't.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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