I worked at Borders full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Working with diverse but similarly motivated people. Lots of opportunity for 'client facing'. Good variety throughout each day. Long-term opportunities to develop specialist skills.

Cons

Low pay for the level of specialist knowledge required. Occasionally required to work unsociable or irregular hours.

Advice to Management

Have a vision for the future, rather than fixate on maintaining the status quo. Think about what tomorrow's customers would like and be ahead of them in getting there.

    I worked at Borders full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Fun environment to work in. Good employee discounts. Allowed to check-out books like a library. Customers are generally very pleasant. Very good coffee.

    Cons

    Company is no longer around. High revolving door of CEO's, who, once they accepted the job, run the exact same policies. Pay was horrible.

    Advice to Management

    Quit laying off the store management staff.
