I have been working at Barnes & Noble full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

If you're willing to work hard and interact with customers with your book knowledge then this is the place for you. Also, you meet with a lot of regulars who may get to know you by name or face. I personally have seen and interacted with quite a few people outside of the bookstore.

Cons

You may deal with the occasional rude customer but most people come in knowing what they want and usually know where to get it- so I guess there are no real cons.

    Pros

    Great environment and some of the best customers. There is a book loan program so you can read new and bestselling books immediately.

    Cons

    The opportunity to advance is very slim, even between districts. Payroll is almost non-exist so managers end up becoming booksellers.
