Recommends
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

The flexible schedule, the people, love of books and being appreciated.

Cons

No pay raises. Pushing us to books for donations to locale charities. This went on for way too long.

Advice to Management

You needed to come down and do undercover boss and see exactly how things really were in the book selling trenches. But I guess your lack of concern in this area (our area), shows since you let the company go under.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    You get to work with books and help people find the best books for them. Great atmosphere, good coffee on the cheap.

    Cons

    They've been making bad business decisions for 10 years now. Filed for bankruptcy in February and now are in liquidation.

    Advice to Management

    Would've been nice if they took advice from people at the store level when making decisions. The corporate level knew almost nothing about books or how to run a successful bookstore.


  2. Was nice while it lasted.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Love the product and the people in the stores.

    Cons

    The company went belly up so this review is a bit pointless.

    Advice to Management

    Well at least they got their separation bonuses while thousands lose the job they loved for years!
