I worked at Barnes & Noble part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Nice and accommodating as a company, stores vary of course. Great environment, fun place to work, good place to be yourself! Good benefits, including discounts. And you can put your life partner on your benefits!

Cons

The customers! But that's unavoidable haha. And some stores don't have cafes! Also, pretty much no one had the same level of customer service as I do, but I'm old fashioned.

Advice to Management

Don't let being a key-holder go to your head. And don't take out your anger about the fact that you being a manager is the best you can do on your employees.

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

    Pros

    30% discount on all books, 50% discount on cafe purchases, book lending program, cool coworkers, being around books 24/7, need I say more?

    Cons

    Some of the regular customers were the most awful people on earth yet worshipped because of their constant patronage. Also, the pay isn't the greatest, and the hours suck unless you work in a mall location.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to care more about the people that work under them. I realize that this is a customer service oriented company, but if you treat your employees badly, business will suffer.
