A Company That Cares

Cafe Server (Current Employee)
Cincinnati, OH (US)

I have been working at Barnes & Noble part-time

ProsThey 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.

ConsIf 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
