I worked at Half Price Books part-time (More than 5 years)
Awesome benefits, great company, off-beat atmosphere. Feels like a community, not just a job, Profit sharing. Environmently conscience. Great donation programs for teachers, hospitals, schools, etc. They really care about their employees, not just lip-service.
A bit on the out-dated side technology wise. And sometimes facility mantainece type issue could be addressed a bit more.
Advice to Management
Keep the awesome benefits, and the laid back atmosphere. Keep on growing, but don't turn into a mindless corporate robot.
I have been working at Half Price Books full-time
They offer fulltime with benefits, generous sick and vacation time, and paid holidays off (although, may not be same day I.e. You will get an extra day off the week before, during or week after of a holiday paid).
They have changed many policies and many benefits that were hired at have been changed or removed. Management is not great at communication.
