"Went steadily downhill during my two years."

Former Employee - Bookseller in Boston, MA
Former Employee - Bookseller in Boston, MA

I worked at Borders part-time (More than a year)

Pros

- I enjoyed working with my fellow booksellers
- I loved working around books and getting to know our product better
- In small pockets I was able to achieve some sense of responsibility

Cons

- The corporate offices lost sight of what made this chain unique when it attempted to clone Barnes and Noble within its walls
- Store management felt it necessary to do exactly what was asked by the removed corporate offices, making work life rather uncomfortable for the employees
