    Pros

    My coworkers were amazing! I loved the people. I loved being around books. At times, it was like a second home.

    I worked at Borders full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The only reason to have worked at Borders is for the interesting people that bookstores attract.

    Cons

    Not only is Borders bankrupt and gone, it was a low paying retail job that slowly stripped employees of benefits on its death spiral.
