I worked at Barnes & Noble part-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Nice and accommodating as a company, stores vary of course. Great environment, fun place to work, good place to be yourself! Good benefits, including discounts. And you can put your life partner on your benefits!

Cons

The customers! But that's unavoidable haha. And some stores don't have cafes! Also, pretty much no one had the same level of customer service as I do, but I'm old fashioned.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't let being a key-holder go to your head. And don't take out your anger about the fact that you being a manager is the best you can do on your employees.

    I have been working at Barnes & Noble part-time

    Pros

    The employees are friendly and genuinely good people. Their hiring policies and dress code policies are great. They truly believe in equality of employment. Even if I'm in a bad mood going in to work my coworkers and the friendly customers can usually cheer me up and turn the shift around. The employee discounts are also great, especially in the cafe.

    Cons

    Gets pretty stressful and busy at times, but what retail job doesn't? The amount of times I get really stressed out are still far outweighed by the shifts I really enjoy.
