    I have been working at Barnes & Noble full-time

    Pros

    There is time to update your resume if you already work for Barnes and Noble

    Cons

    Think Borders. When they first planned to close only a small percentage of stores to remain profitable, they followed that move with the closing of all stores. Seems like the announcement to only close 1/3 of our stores is so the stock price will not free fall, so customers will still buy gift cards and member cards. Digital goals are so high that no store can offset this shortfall when staffing stores.

    Advice to Management

    Spend time working a full shift in the stores, not just a one hour suit-pop-in.

    Pros

    Definitely because you meet a lot of new people and the friends you make while you work there. Employees and management are nice.

    Cons

    Personally I didn't have much problems with the job. Although, once Rutgers bookstore merged with B&N college booksellers there was a wage decrease.
