    Excellent, tiered benefits packages and free employee assistance programs available. Very good coverage also available for part-time employees

    They have insurance, even though it is not the best. It has gotten worse as the years have progressed (ie. costs more with less benefits). Part-time employees often cannot afford our insurance package. They do have a 401k, which is pretty decent. They used to have a very nice profit sharing program that paid out quarterly, but now we have $50 on our employee card. I appreciate the thought but perhaps it would have been better just to drop that into the 401k. They do provide roll over sick time and vacation time, paid holidays, and an additional 4 personal days throughout the year. When you leave the company you do get paid out for up to 21 days of accrued vacation time. Their employee discount is phenomenal.

    Somewhat good benefits for a retail store but horrible management. management doesn't know what or how to run the store properly

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Chicago, Illinois

    Good health care, matching for 401k plan, paid sick time, vacation, and holidays, very good employee discount, profit-based bonuses and holiday bonuses

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Shift Leader in Kansas City, Missouri

    Great benefits for full time staff. Excellent health insurance, one month PAID maternity/paternity leave, copious vacation and sick time and holidays, 401(k), an employee discount that makes it very hard to hang onto your whole paycheck.

    It’s affordable and coverage is good. Covers medical, dental, and vision.

  • Jan 14, 2018
    StarStarStarStarStar Former Bookseller in Frisco, Texas

    Employee discount, excellent insurance benefits, performance-based bonuses -- 4 times a year, the company splits a portion of its profits with every employee. Everyone from the CEO down to the most recently hired bookseller gets the same amount, which usually ranges from $100 to $500. There is also a Christmas bonus that I think is based on your years of service.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Bookseller in Cincinnati, Ohio

    Offers paid sick time but manager would penalize and withhold raises from employees who use them - even those with serious illnesses and notes from doctors. Paid vacation days were on a “first come” basis and manager would blacked out most weekends months in advance. No bonus pay for working holidays and “Profit Sharing” checks were rapidly shrinking.
