    I worked at Better World Books full-time


    The atmosphere is very casual and friendly. There aren't many places that you can go to work in jeans and a sweatshirt, but here you can. The work is about being productive and getting things done efficiently and effectively.


    The con of working in the book industry is the fact that there are two main time frames for buying a large quantity of books: summer and fall, when students start school, and winter, when the spring semester begins. This causes employees to work overtime during some months and frequently have to leave work early in other months.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Better World Books (Mishawaka, IN) in September 2014.


    The process was fairly easy. I was called for a phone interview, which only lasted maybe fifteen minutes, and then came in for an interview, which lasted a half hour. Everyone was friendly and the questions were adequate for the position.
