I worked at Baker & Taylor full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

It's a job, good breaks during the shifts. Supers and managers where good as long as you did your job and didn't screw around. If you mess around too much you can expect write ups.

Cons

The unsteady hours. Some days you get sent home early and others days you work long hours (9+) only to be sent home at the end of the week. Which was ok IF you made your 40 hours for the week. There are times of the year where we would work a lot of OT. So I guess it balances out but makes it hard to pay some bills in the end.
