    Pros

    Sharing my love of reading with fellow customers and employees.

    Cons

    I sometimes feel like cooperate has forgotten what it's like to actually work the floor with the expectations of email captures and selling memberships. Most people really don't want to give out their email, and most really don't want to get a membership. Many have heard our sales pitch multiple time and know if it's worth it or not. After working here for 5 years, I also have a pretty good idea of whether or not a person is likely to use the card in the next year, or if they will even be back in store in the coming weeks. Corporate seems to forget that booksellers are pretty good at being able to tell what our costumers want and need.
