Good Company, Low Pay, Few Hours If You're Not Full-Time

Community Relations Manager (Former Employee)

I worked at Barnes & Noble full-time for more than 5 years

ProsUsually fun, like-minded co-workers; good discounts; great for people who like interaction and being up on their feet.

ConsMinimal hours available to part-timers; stores frequently understaffed due to lack of hours; may become repetitive or boring to some.

Advice to Senior ManagementIn store management is typically doing their best with what they've got to work with, and the organization doesn't seem too top heavy.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
