Previously fun environment is now hell as company dies a slow death.

I have been working at Barnes & Noble

Pros

Flexible scheduling, laid back environment, variety of work in major market stores

Cons

Dismal pay, no chance for advancement, management never follows through, company is getting rid of all ft employees

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If Barnes and Noble wants a future, it sure seems to be going about it the wrong way. Long term employees should be valued and sought after for promotions. Often times, however, long term employees are run off and new hires who know nothing about books are brought in. There are now so few full time positions that the store can hardly be run successfully.
