Double Edged sword

Former Employee - Cashier/Bookseller in New York, NY

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.

    Former Employee - Inventory Supervisor in Westlake, OH

    I worked at Borders full-time (more than 5 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
