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

    Pros

    The atmosphere, working around books and coffee, was great. The customers weren't as terrible as the usual retail crowd. Also, the free book rentals was a nice perk!

    Cons

    The hours were long, and every employee had an oversized list of responsibilities in exchange for a very meager salary with no vacation or sick leave. The better an employee was at the job, the less time off he or she would have. If a good employee requested off, Borders was more likely to reject it in order to keep the store running properly at all time (rather than simply hiring more competent workers).
