Pros

Borders has a customer friendly atmosphere. They offer great deals to those who are part of the rewards programs. Medical benefits are quite good for those who are full time employees.

Cons

They do not have any sense of promoting from within. Managers are nearly always hired from the outside. There is a lot of micromanaging from the corporate headquarters.

    Pros

    I love working here. We get free coffee if we write book reviews and i get to check out books. I love the people i work with.

    Cons

    The managers aren't much help they just sit in the back and they're constantly pushing borders rewards plus to re point where it drives employees and customers crazy

    Advice to Management

    Lay off on the borders plus cards and actually do some work around the store when we need help, too


  2. Enjoyed the people I worked with. Wish corporate would connect better with store level.

    Pros

    Good people BOOKS!!! MUSIC!!! Casual dress Real book lovers are usually those that apply Financial status is questionalbe at this point - what a shame

    Cons

    Disconnect between corporate and store level Questionable financial status Cutting hours of staff and not reducing tasks to be completed henders customer service

    Advice to Management

    Everyone deserves to be heard wether or not each request can be satisfied. Make the projects that need to be completed workable with the amount of staff available.
