I have been working at Barnes & Noble College Bookstores full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great group of people to work for in Operational Finance group (Inventory Control, A/P, A/R, Sales Audit). Benefits are decent with 100% match in 401K up to 4% of your pay. Company isn't too top heavy with good organizationl structure. Culture is a little stiff but overall a good place to work.

Cons

Company uses an AS400 platform, Peoplesoft, Infor PM/Office Plus. AS400 is very antiquated and frustrating to use for data analysis. Company offers very little in way of tuition assistance (not even enough to pay for 1 class at a 4 year institution)

    I worked at Barnes & Noble College Bookstores full-time

    Pros

    They cherish you as a employee. They give you an outline of expectations. Very well structured. They will not make you do anything that they do not believe in.

    Cons

    Excpect you to be good at everything that you do. There is no real structure for displanary actions. They will come and fire you without reason. You put in a request to transfer to another store, they will almost hire outside of the company.

    Pros

    it was good for a part time or seasonal job and the hours were convenient with class schedule which was nice

    Cons

    Even though they promised pay raises I never saw them and when minimum wage went up instead of my wage going up in proportion it just became the minimum wage since that was higher than i was making though i was not making minimum wage before that.

    Advice to Management

    you need to inform employees of why they are not being put on the schedule and let them know in advance
