overall good company to work for

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsGet a good discount, decent benefits, overall good work environment.

Conshours are never guarenteed and can change week to week.
starting pay is minimal
at my store the managers never seem to be on the same page. Very little communication

Advice to Senior Managementcome to the stores and talk to the employees. They are the ones providing the customer service day to day and putting the bonuses in everyones pockets. Provide training for Nook. If we're expected to sell it we should have the time to learn the product.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
