    I've been very happy at B&N as a second job.

    I have been working at Barnes & Noble part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The managers are fair and have always been respectful and flexible when necessary. I love my co-workers and take advantage of the employee discount. The staff is very friendly.

    Cons

    There is a lot of straightening, shelving and picking up after customers who leave piles of books and magazines all over the store.

    Pros

    Good coworkers and management team. Flexible scheduling. Benefits available. I worked in two different stores, and was hired to the second store without any problem, and they appreciated my experience.

    Cons

    Pay isn't wonderful, but if you work enough hours you're eligible for benefits. Always enjoyed working here.
