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

    Pros

    They have good benefits for full-timers. It's a nice store to work at, and conditions are generally good.

    Cons

    Depending on the managers it can be rough at times. The prices are bad even with employee discount. Hours are inconsistent. Managers often aren't great at their job and pass responsibility onto you.

    Advice to Management

    Relax, be friendly, kind, and encouraging to booksellers and employees. Don't let frustrations with customers get in the way of your attitude.
