    Pros

    Good temporary job for a teenager. Semi-flexible hours, discounts on merchandise and drinks.
    There is a manga and anime movie section.

    Cons

    Do not consider staying there! Almost no bonuses, pay raises or position advances/promotions.
    The people that work there all seem to know that the job there is temporary.

    Advice to Management

    Add more chairs and tables, have an upstairs and downstairs Starbucks. On the tables have cheap, small magnifiers attached for senior citizen use. Host workshops and study groups there for a tiny fee. Sell pencils, mechanical pencils and pens and paper specificly for these study groups.


  2. "was fun while it lasted"

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    really great people, it was a great environment at the time, however things have gone downhill fast. I don't think it will be around much longer

    Cons

    top management knows nothing about the book industry. Borders has always lagged behind Amazon and Barnes & Noble with technology.

    Advice to Management

    Please get back to the basics which made this company great. customer service, knowledgable sales people and a first rate selection.
