I worked at Barnes & Noble full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Most employees respect the brand and are happy to work for the company. Management is old school and a little out of touch with modern employment practices. Access to books, and most stores are comfortable and clean.

Cons

Low pay, Company quick to pay employees minimum wage, and limit hours to 29 so as not to be responsible for health insurance.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire some younger managers with new Ideas and don't be afraid to stick with what works.
