I have been working at Barnes & Noble part-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Depending on our your department manager and coworker relations, your schedule can be somewhat flexible! They have this awesome book borrowing program that not many people know about that allows you to borrow any hardcover in the store with managers' permission, which is such an amazing benefit. Like your own private library!

Cons

It isn't anyone goal job, besides maybe store managing, so everyone is looking for a promotion or keeping their options open-realistic for most beginning jobs, really.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Mine were really supportive, but each store varies. Thank you for those who give back and recognize your employees!

    Pros

    Great customers & it's fun and interesting working with books.

    Cons

    Can't get ahead; constantly cutting hours; won't work with your schedule;expect you to be there at a moments notice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If your workers are happy (especially your best and hardest workers) you will be more successful and your store will be as well. Try being more understanding and not just thinking you are the be all and end all.
