    Pros

    I enjoyed working here. The managers are great, and very supportive. It's fun to talk to customers about my favorite books!

    Cons

    Occasionally there are annoying customers. You're on your feet the entire shift, so you need a good pair of shoes.

    Pros

    You get a great employee discount on books (40%) Nice to have the Starbucks cafe for drinks on break Fun being surrounded by books most co workers were pretty chill

    Cons

    I had 1 manager that just made me not want to go in. I would have rather dealt with customers than her. I am a good employee and hard worker and always felt she treated me as if I was looking for a way to get out of doing my job right. Ex: Me, new and looking for an EDT reader, minding my own business Her: *watching me* What do you need?! me: Just picking an EDT reader Her: Well its this one right here, you should have a number assigned! Me: Okay thank you (in my head "why be so abrasive about it?") Or when I had questions being new and she would tell me things that I SHOULD have already known them and get impatient if I ask questions. Like ma'am, I am asking questions because I want to do a good job and you're literally treating me like a poor employee and getting impatient with me. Seriously, if it weren't for her as a manager I probably would have stayed longer than a temp but by the time Holidays were over I was glad to leave. Even rude customers were better to deal with than her, at least they were out of the store the rest of the day.
