Discount is probably the only Pro
Bookseller/Barista (Volt alkalmazott) – Saint Cloud, MN – 2019, február 14.
My time at Barnes and Noble was a mixed bag. I enjoyed being around books and coffee and nerding out with fellow staff and customers, but the rest was not good. The pay is pitifully low, without even legitimate raises (pay bumps because minimum wage went up should not count...), and the manager was horrible! She was the main reason I left, besides the pay. She was controlling, manipulative, and micromanaging. She stressed everyone out, and the atmosphere was just awful. She had favorites and would bully the staff members that she didn't like. No one wanted to be there when she was there. Also, the hours were really inconsistent. One week I would have 15-20, then the next only 8, and some weeks, none at all. It was impossible to budget. I would not recommend this place to anyone, especially since the company recently axed over fifteen hundred employees. Not a good sign.
Books and discounts
Pay, bad management, inconsistent hours, company's outlook seems poor
