    Great if you have a love for books, bad if you like standing for long hours!"

    Pros

    I worked in the children's department and I am now an early childhood education teacher. This worked in my favor because I became familiar with children's literature. When I was lead- bookseller they made me find places for stacks and stacks of books when there was no room for them anywhere.

    Cons

    Long hours of standing. Half-hour breaks/15 minute breaks. Made me work in the Cafe when they were short staffed. Tried to make employees sell membership cards.
