    I have been working at Borders part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Because the company was closing, I was able to have a lot of flexibility with my schedule and my hours.

    Cons

    It is a good thing that Borders closed it's doors for good. The company was falling apart from the executives down to the management.

    I worked at Borders part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, free books, good people. I found a few great book series while I was working there, but the discount was laughable.

    Cons

    management never got their act together. We spent the entire 3 years I was there waiting for them to order Seattle's best Shirts for the Cafe. I never got a raise except when minimum wage went up. We were constantly told to push books we knew nothing about.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your closed now. What can I say?

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
