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

    Pros

    co-workers
    customers
    books
    The environment was very fun and after working at two separate locations, I still would go back.

    Cons

    It's the service industry, so customers are customers.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Barnes & Noble (Manchester, CT) in July 2015.

    Interview

    There was no follow through on the interview. The position was filled, but no communication. I would expect more from a company like Barnes & Noble to have sent a follow up email..."Thank you for interviewing with us...
