    I worked at Strand Book Store full-time

    There were some fun projects and lots of freedom to develop new ideas and projects. Work varied from day to day.

    Cons

    Lack of opportunity for growth. There was no position higher than manager besides the GM so there was no were to go after your initial promotion.

    Advice to Management

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Strand Book Store (New York, NY) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I was called after I applied. I went in and spoke with their recruitment officer. She was polite, professional and very candid. She proceeded to ask me questions about my history working in bookstores and a few personal questions regarding my interest in the Strand.
