    I worked at Borders full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people were great. The only pros were the employee discount and the co-workers.

    Cons

    There is a reason this place went out of business... They didn't keep up with the times and their employees were overworked and underpaid.

  2. The once great fell so far.

    Pros

    Discount on books, promo copies you could take home, ability to borrow books, typically GREAT coworkers.

    Cons

    Hour cuts without warning, too much work/pressure, constant threat of closure, did I mention too much work?, customers became reliant on coupons and there were no systems in place to help us prevent abuse. So we were told not to allow them to abuse them but the customer would scream at us not corporate.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate knows nothing. They are constantly flailing about making silly decisions that anyone in the store knows won't "save the company."
