  2.  

    Varied depending upon location. Some were great places to work - especially if you like books, music, movie and coffee.

    I worked at Borders full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good discounts, flexible hours. Met some great coworkers. Learned a great deal about new releases and enjoyed helping customers with recommendations.

    Cons

    Treatment and hours varied at the whim of managers. Some were wonderful and others would be erratic. Company policy of throwing out massive amounts of merchandise was appalling - bad for the environment and plain wasteful.
