I worked at Barnes & Noble College Bookstores part-time (More than a year)
I had a good experience as a bookseller.
There were no cons for me.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Barnes & Noble College Bookstores in November 2014.
Face-to-face interview with Store Manager and General (Area) Manager, phone interview with Regional Manager. General Manager moved the time back by 30 minutes but didn't tell me--I showed up 45 minutes early. The Store Manager showed me some of the store processes as if I were already hired. The interview was easy--I asked a lot of questions about Loss Prevention, not realizing that it's not so highly emphasized here as my other retail jobs.
