    Pros

    Great company culture, and training program.

    Cons

    The industry is unpredictable, so at any point you could lose your job if the university or college decides to go with a different company to manage the campus bookstore,

    A billionaire family owned company that is not keeping in touch with todays fair labor treatment of employees.

    Pros

    Lots of new and young people coming in.

    Cons

    Don't expect fair treatment. Expect bullying and belittling by senior management. Be careful HR protects the company and not the working employees. I was being bullied by a senior VP and complained and met with HR on going for a year when they finally said I was newer with the company and i should find a new job because senior management would not be asked to change or stop.

    Same Senior VP was treating an African American woman so badly and she got so frustrated she threatened to kill everyone in the department.... She was allowed to keep working and HR and Senior Management agreed to ignore her threats of bodily harm to everyone in the department. Eventually her position was eliminated she was fired, then they rehired a new person for the same position giving it a new title. Once again no care for the well being of the working employees.

    Advice to Management

    Senior Mgrs should retire already, and your HR department needs lots of work.
