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

    Pros

    Discounts on books, music, DVDs, etc. Generally good about working with you if need be. It was a fairly standard retail job. It was good for me because I love books, but seeing as they seem to be going the way of the e-book and Amazon, the company is no more.

    Cons

    At time it felt like there were too many bosses present all the same time.

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

    Pros

    Making coffee was so much fun, and the regulars are amazing!

    Cons

    I was promised a raise and never received one. Barely survived on this income. Borders rewards sign up percentages.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management expected us to pull the same Borders rewards signup percentages as the cashiers selling books and miscellaneous items. People come to the coffee shop for coffee---not to be hounded about signing up for some card they have to pay for every year.
