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

Pros

Great coworkers, lots of interesting and educated customers. New conversation every day. A great environment for bibliophiles. Good job for college kids or retirees.

Cons

Too much corporate control of things that could have been handled at a store level. Too slow to adapt to the internet.

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

    Pros

    Discounts on books, music, DVDs, etc. Generally good about working with you if need be. It was a fairly standard retail job. It was good for me because I love books, but seeing as they seem to be going the way of the e-book and Amazon, the company is no more.

    Cons

    At time it felt like there were too many bosses present all the same time.
