    I worked at Strand Book Store full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The discount is nice (but only on the used books, if it's new or front listed the discount sucks)

    Cons

    If you are still within your 90 days don't expect your co-workers or management to warm to you. Due to the insane turnover rate, you are viewed with a ticking clock until they either let you go within 90 days, until you quit or until you survive long enough to make the union. Also the hours and shifts are horrible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care about your new people and don't just cast them out or leave them on the fringes. Don't make the environment so spiteful and toxic.
