Good stopover job

Bookseller (Current Employee) Plymouth Meeting, PA

ProsA really good job - entered as a student, and the managers were always wonderful about my erratic and ever-changing schedule

ConsCustomers, customers, customers - a lot of the issues on the B&N website led to in-store issues like those angry about web-only sales or prices
Too much corporate control meant none of the sales staff's personalities showed in the books - many of the titles on display were ones none of us cared about or liked
Low pay for tasks managed

Advice to Senior ManagementReturn a little display control to employees

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
