    I worked at Strand Book Store full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Most of the staff are friendly and are avid readers, some are veracious and love to talk about books.

    Cons

    Economics has made the store look more like a novelty store than an old fashioned bookstore because of the merchandise items and tables where shelves used to be.

    Application

    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.
