    Pros

    Management is very friendly. Because the jobs are filled mainly by students, they are very accommodating to student's schedules. Laid back atmosphere.

    Cons

    Lots of busy work, but that is to be expected with any retail job. Pay isn't that great, but it allows for a little walking around money while at school.

    Advice to Management

    Don't give as much busy work unless the job is vital to the operation of the bookstore. Other than that,

    I have been working at Occidental College Bookstore part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It is a work-study position which means that it provides income to help sustain school and personal expenses. The job is not too demanding, so it doesn't really interfere with completing studies. Doing homework in the shop is allowed as long as one is also doing their job.

    Cons

    There aren't really any cons that I can think of, except that it gets a little slow sometimes during the year.

    Advice to Management

    I do not have any advice for management because Donna rocks. I don't know how the bookstore would run without her. She is honestly made for the job.
