Pros

Good health insurance, attempts at trying to seem to care for the employees

Cons

They do layoffs EVERY year right after MLK birthday. Where careers come to dies.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Let employees know there is no growth. Don't hire anyone under 40 and no kids for that reason.

    Pros

    This is a great place to work if you like books. I worked here as a part-time bookseller for several years while attending school. If you work full time and are good at your job, there are advancement opportunities. They're pretty good about raises. Very flexible scheduling.

    Cons

    Relatively low pay at first. Stores sometimes close, and you have to try to find a new job at another of their stores.
