I worked at Barnes & Noble part-time (more than a year)

Pros

Part of the job is to know books- what's new, what's good, what's hot- so if you're a literature fan this is great! It's also very low key, but things change around often enough for it to not get monotone

Cons

Very strict corporate structure, sometimes it's hard to find arguments as to why B&N is a better choice than Amazon and the likes, you are almost forced to push memberships, etc

    I have been working at Barnes & Noble full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Nice to work with people who are there because they love the product. Nice to be able to enhance the lives of our customers.

    Cons

    NOOK is great, but there is so much competition today. Amazon and Kindle are household names that are hard to overcome, despite NOOK being a superior product.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow customers to get on-line prices in the stores. Customers have a hard time understanding the price differences and they don't care about cost-structure reasoning.
