    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Barnes & Noble full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Most of my co-workers were a dream.
    - Lead position got stable hours.
    - A few cool regulars

    Cons

    - More crazy customers than normal ones.
    - Too much work given in too small of a time period
    - The pay for a lead position should've been the pay for regular booksellers, and the leads should have at least gotten about two dollars more.
    - No help. Ever.
    - Severe lack of communication from management.
    - High levels of micro-managing. (It felt like I was being babysat frequently)

    Advice to Management

    My main concern is the extremely low pay. With the amount of training and knowledge we need to stay on top of, I feel that we should be paid more. The fast food joint across the street starts people at about two dollars more than our leads make.
