Great product

I worked at Barnes & Noble

Pros

As 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.

Cons

I 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 Management

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

    Pros

    35% discount on purchases, flexible hours, there are some fun co-workers

    Cons

    Management borders on tyrannical about theft but only internal theft leaving customers to take what they will, the pay is atrocious, different rules for different associates, bad HR response
