  • Employee Discount(155 comments)

    “The employee discount is only 30% off on books and 20% off on CDs and DVDs and like 10-15% off on Nook. Honestly I don't even use it, I still...”

  • Vacation & Paid Time Off(54 comments)

    “It's pretty standard, but not great. You earn like a day or two per month. Typical, sub-par United States vacation plan.”

  • Sick Days(24 comments)

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Cafe Lead Server in Raleigh, North Carolina

    Pretty comprehensive package for medical and dental. Surprisingly good benefits from a stingy company. Best thing is the coverage. Worst is there's only two choices for coverage options and only one carrier.

    The worst thing is that you have to be full time to get health insurance, and its not easy to get full time. The prescription drug coverage is horrible, Caremark, they do not work with you to get a drug approved if they don't cover it you're basically out of luck. So you have Caremark not your doctor determining what drugs you get.

    YOU GET vacation AFTER 6 months. They offer 401K plan, only a full time employee Can agent health and dental coverage. You get your first raise after 6 months. Then it's every year.

    Only benefit for part-time employees is the store discount of 20%. This works on all products and café items.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Boston, Massachusetts

    Employee discount is good- 15% off Nook, 20% off music/DVDs, 30% off books/gift, 50% off most cafe (some is only 30%). Pretty good amount of PTO, only a few paid sick days. Part-time employees aren't eligible for medical/dental insurance or a retirement plan. Full-time dental coverage is decent and covers 2 cleanings a year. Company matches 401k contributions up to 4% for full-time employees. A co-worker that had a baby was given reasonable accommodations, but had to use PTO for her leave and then took another few weeks of unpaid time off, so maternity leave could be better. Not sure about other parental leaves.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Huntington Beach, California

    As a part-time employee, you pretty much get no benefits. But the employee discount is pretty great, 30% off full priced books and 20% off music, movies, and electronic accessories.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Fairbanks, Alaska

    The discount is pretty great, 50% off on cafe food and beverages and 30% on books and like 10% music (not entirely sure about that one). The health coverage is mediocre, high deductibles. And the vision doesn't for anywhere in Fairbanks m, Ak
