    Pros

    Easy transfers to different locations, Equal opportunity employer, Flexibility in scheduling if you need to work multiple jobs or go to school, tuition reimbursement for related fields

    Cons

    Retail environment, Pay starts at min wage, Not enough resources for team (i.e. Microsoft Office on only one terminal throughout the entire store, writing out shipping slips instead of being able to enter it in, etc)

    Advice to Management

    Holiday conversations are entirely too long; Create better employee incentives, even if you can not pay them well

  2. Good working environment

    Pros

    The atmosphere is warm and comfortable. The staff is excellent and you're surrounded by people who love reading. A great place to work if you love books!

    Cons

    The company is not quite sure where it is going right now. It will be resolved soon, hopefully, but at the moment it is a little unsure of itself.
