Pros

They care about their employees. There are a lot of different retail stores to work in across the country. Every day you get the chance to talk to new people. It's a good environment and a company that will take care of you as an employee.

Cons

If you are only part time the pay isn't the highest. If you're full time you do get better pay and benefits. If you're part time it's just typical hourly pay. It is a retail job and that does mean plenty of crazy people to deal with at times as well as some different hours to work. It's not a 9-5, but it's a good job.

    I worked at Barnes & Noble part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The hours, employee programs, and core values all made this a satisfying company to work for. Everyone seemed committed to the well being of the company as a whole, which made for a motivating and positive work environment.

    Cons

    Management was disconnected and often unapproachable, so you never really knew where you stood. Not very much one on one attention.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time getting to know your employees and recognizing potential leaders.

    I have been working at Barnes & Noble part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    They have good benefits for full-timers. It's a nice store to work at, and conditions are generally good.

    Cons

    Depending on the managers it can be rough at times. The prices are bad even with employee discount. Hours are inconsistent. Managers often aren't great at their job and pass responsibility onto you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Relax, be friendly, kind, and encouraging to booksellers and employees. Don't let frustrations with customers get in the way of your attitude.
