Pros
Cons
  • I knew other people who were working a couple of jobs to make ends meet, but working 50 to 60 hours a week for low pay is really no way to live (in 12 reviews)

  • Paid sick time reduced to 9 days per year from 12 (in 9 reviews)

    I worked at Half Price Books full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Well, they did pay me. Thanks.

    They do not actually recycle books, they claim to recycle but a large portion end up in the dumpsters behind the stores.

    Cons

    Wrongfully fired. Several people were fired in a short period of time by DM and store manager. Told by management that if the records being sold to us have a black person on the cover who is "dressed funky" than to buy the album because someone will buy it. Also asked to follow around black people to make sure they do not steal. Most employees refused. Some eagerly followed them around.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck.
