"Perfect Part-time Job"

Current Employee - Part Time Book Seller in Lincolnshire, IL

I have been working at Barnes & Noble part-time

Pros

There's a great discount on the merchandise, with an increased percentage for the "employee appreciation week" that falls at the beginning of the holiday season. You can borrow hard cover books for two weeks. There is also a lot of flexibility in scheduling.

Cons

There isn't really the opportunity to work full-time, and full-time would only be 30 hours as opposed to 40.

    I worked at Barnes & Noble full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Average employee is educated and fun to work with, really love my co-workers!

    Cons

    Management does not care about their employees. Regional Management cannot make a good hiring decision for the St. Louis District Manager position to save their life. The Company makes a big deal about caring for their employees but it is just a front. Like most Companies they only care about profit...

    Advice to Management

    If you take care of the employees they will take care of the Company. Follow your own Company Policies...

    bonus your sales positions, you'd be more liable to keep great people
