Great product

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsAs a book lover, I enjoyed working for a company who contributed to their local community and encouraged reading for all ages. B&N also embraces individuality and diversity which brought a great balance to the work environment.

ConsI wish the salary had been higher and that there was better training. People need to be taught about what great customer service looks like. B&N should take the time to do so.

Advice to Senior ManagementHigher salaries afford you a higher level of talent. Take the time to find truly dedicated people who want to be there.

    Minimal Pay, Minimal Hours, Minimal Respect

    I have been working at Barnes & Noble part-time for less than a year


    Pros: 35% discount on purchases, flexible hours, there are some fun… Cons: Management borders on tyrannical about theft but only internal theft leaving customers to take… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
