Pros

Great people, great books, great place. Overall, it was a really positive working environment, and you could tell that the people you were working with cared as much about literature as you did.

Cons

The occasional bigot will come in asking where your Qurans are so they can burn one. They also really like you to sell sell sell the nook, which is exceedingly difficult to do when you're selling a $2 coffee to a book-lover.

Advice to Management

Don't push the nook so hard -- most people coming to B&N are more interested in books, not eReaders.
