    I worked at Barnes & Noble College Bookstores part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Schedule must work around your class schedule! The pay is very reasonable if you live on campus, since there are very little extra mandatory expenses. You become quite popular on campus, which boost club and other social opportunities. It even helps academically as well (the more people you know, the bigger the study group!).

    Cons

    Sometimes, specifically as a cashier, there is only busy work to do. Anyone who has ever worked before knows that can become very tedious and it makes time go by oh so slowly.

    Advice to Management

    More team building activities and less authority given to staffers who have been their longer, especially because they are actually on the same level as new employees. I know it puts less stress on you and gives you time to manage the necessary things behind the scenes. However, some are willing to overstep and possibly abuse that power.
