Pros

Great environment and some of the best customers. There is a book loan program so you can read new and bestselling books immediately.

Cons

The opportunity to advance is very slim, even between districts. Payroll is almost non-exist so managers end up becoming booksellers.

    Pros

    Usually always fun co-workers, and a great place to work for book lovers

    Cons

    Not nearly enough hours available.

    Advice to Management

    Lower expectations. The book business is not what it was 10 years ago. You can not continue to hope to meet those numbers.
