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

    Pros

    The atmosphere, working around books and coffee, was great. The customers weren't as terrible as the usual retail crowd. Also, the free book rentals was a nice perk!

    Cons

    The hours were long, and every employee had an oversized list of responsibilities in exchange for a very meager salary with no vacation or sick leave. The better an employee was at the job, the less time off he or she would have. If a good employee requested off, Borders was more likely to reject it in order to keep the store running properly at all time (rather than simply hiring more competent workers).
