hostile work environment

Advice to Senior ManagementGive it up. Borders died years ago, even before Greg J. (former CEO) finished destroying it. Leave the rotting carcass like the vultures you are, and take your golden parachutes with you!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Don't follow health standards because they don't care about employees or customers.

    I worked at Borders

    Pros: It's hard to find a positive about this company and store, if you're a reader than employees are allowed to rent books from the store… Cons: Shifts can last all day for a salary that's below minimum wage. Some employees have been romantically involved with each other in chaotic and unprofessional… Advice to Senior Management: Need to fix their HR department-Out of all the jobs I've worked at in my life, only at this company has sexual harassment been so… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
