    I have been working at Barnes & Noble part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    35% discount on purchases, flexible hours, there are some fun co-workers

    Cons

    Management borders on tyrannical about theft but only internal theft leaving customers to take what they will, the pay is atrocious, different rules for different associates, bad HR response

    I have been working at Barnes & Noble full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Love the store, love helping customers find the book they are looking for and seeing them leave happy

    Cons

    not enough people working to help everyone most of the time, we could help more people and sell more items if we had more time to talk to our customers. I feel like Im always rushing to the next person.

    Advice to Management

    Be more realistic with nook goals, allow more payroll to have people working to get stock out and still have people on the floor to assist paying customers
