    I worked at Indigo Books & Music part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I loved my co-workers, management was wonderful, and the 30% discount on everything is amazing if you buy as many books as I do! It's also not as difficult to get a job. I started off as a seasonal employee during the Christmas season and was then kept on afterwards. At my store, anyways, even when you went away to school you were almost always guaranteed a job over christmas break

    Cons

    some of the customers can be a bit hard to deal with and the hours were not incredible during the off season (january to june)
