Perfect Part-time Job

Part Time Book Seller (Current Employee)
Lincolnshire, IL

ProsThere's a great discount on the merchandise, with an increased percentage for the "employee appreciation week" that falls at the beginning of the holiday season. You can borrow hard cover books for two weeks. There is also a lot of flexibility in scheduling.

ConsThere isn't really the opportunity to work full-time, and full-time would only be 30 hours as opposed to 40.

    Terrible

    Bookseller (Former Employee)
    Nashville, TN

    I worked at Barnes & Noble part-time for less than a year


    Pros: You are around book. You help people find the books they're looking for. If… Cons: The management at my location was terrible. There were a few good ones, but all of the managers that had power over me were terrible.… Advice to Senior Management: The retail bookstore may be a dying business, but don't let a management concern for the bottom line $$$ impact… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
