I have been working at Barnes & Noble part-time

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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you say you will ship the nooks out on a certain date please do it or the stores are the ones who look bad.

    I worked at Barnes & Noble part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great people, great books, great place. Overall, it was a really positive working environment, and you could tell that the people you were working with cared as much about literature as you did.

    Cons

    The occasional bigot will come in asking where your Qurans are so they can burn one. They also really like you to sell sell sell the nook, which is exceedingly difficult to do when you're selling a $2 coffee to a book-lover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't push the nook so hard -- most people coming to B&N are more interested in books, not eReaders.
