Negative work environment
Café Manager (Volt alkalmazott) –  Augusta, ME2018, augusztus 14.
I began my three year tenure at B&N and absolutely LOVED the first 2 years. I was hired externally for the new café lead position and worked closely with the café manager up until her sudden departure. Being most suited at the time for the position, I applied for, interviewed and received a promotion for Café Manager! It was super exciting and started off really well. However, because of the sudden state of our café after the previous café manager's leave, I did not receive the usual café manager training where I would have trained for my managerial position within another store. Down the road, that severely impacted my ability to execute my manager duties effectively. I did not receive any training in business acumen whatsoever and everything with the systems that I did learn was self taught by poking around when I had a free moment. I was also scheduled as a member of staff, not as a manager overseeing my department, which made it excessively difficult to see to my managerial duties. The store manager was adept at the operation of the bookfloor, but regarding matters in the café, she did not understand the scrope and did not provide helpful feedback. Often times her criticisms were harsh and belittling.

So Not Worth It
Barista/Bookseller/Cashier (Volt alkalmazott) –  Tucson, AZ2018, augusztus 13.
I started out in the cafe. I was trained well and the cafe management was great. The problem? Although I was getting paid minimum wage, I was doing what the managers were doing, but without the benefits. When the managers weren’t there, I was told by the bookfloor and general managers to call/write in and put away the orders, call mechanics, and other things I had no training on. There also were many, many times that I was in the cafe all by myself for an hour at a time during a rush. Twice just happened to be when the food and milk order came. Even the regulars started to notice.
Besides that craziness, the closing shift would always be 3:00-10:30, or 11:00. There is too much to do to close up the cafe with only 2 people.
When I finally got the chance to remain in the bookfloor, someone left in the cafe, and I was told to cover for them. This happened not only for the day to day coverage, but I ended up only getting shifts in the cafe because so many people had left the company.
On the flip side, the bookfloor was fun!

It was ok
Bookseller/Cashier (Volt alkalmazott) –  New York, NY2018, augusztus 12.
Almost always super crowded so its hard to move around. Some supervisors have favorites. Improper health training. Almost impossible to switch positions.

Customer Service Associate (Volt alkalmazott) –  Nashville, TN2018, augusztus 11.
I really enjoyed working for Barnes and Noble. I worked as a sales associate. I stocked merchandise, completed sales/cash transactions, assisted customers and helped with store events. It was fun. The pay and hours were good.

Wasted so many years
Receiver (Volt alkalmazott) –  Jacksonville, FL2018, augusztus 11.
Worked at BN for 15 years. From management to part time and every department. Beyond shady. I worked enough hours to get benefits but was "coded" at 12 hours so I could never get them. Full time positions were almost all eliminated they laid off great, tenured people to do it. Workload to staff ratio was exhausting. Cafe employees left alone for whole shift practically begging for a break which was covered by a manager who was barely trained in there. No training, horrible customers, horrible pay, horrible management, no honesty, shady disrespectful upper management. It started out great but the employees are the most miserable people. All of us were on Indeed looking to jump this sinking ship. Shut it down.

Fun and interesting workplace
Bookseller/Customer Service/Cashier (Jelenlegi alkalmazott) –  Tulsa, OK2018, augusztus 10.
The associates are new and interesting and unique, and every single day is different. My favorite part is the employees I work with, and the work I do.

Bookish Downfall
Barista/Cafe Lead (Jelenlegi alkalmazott) –  Las Vegas, NV2018, augusztus 8.
I absolutely love working at Barnes and Noble, the only downside is, its a dying company. There are a few Barnes and Noble that will still for a couple more years but unfortunately the store I am currently working at, will not. It is a great if you're looking for something temporary and put on your resume.

Great place!!
Customer Service Assistant (Volt alkalmazott) –  Waterloo, IA2018, augusztus 7.
B&N offers a very friendly and professional work culture. Management is wonderful and always a pleasure to work with. Unfortunately there are not that many chances for advancements and with recent changes, hours have been drastically reduced.

For a retail store, it's a fun place to work at but salary is low
Customer Service Specialist (Volt alkalmazott) –  Huntington Beach, CA2018, augusztus 7.
It's fun to work at Barnes & Nobles but the pay is very low and little job advancement. The managers are very friendly with you and keep things professional as well. They sometimes pressure you to sell memberships but they do it in a positive way and not in a negative way. Which works because if it was negative pressure, we wouldn't be getting any memberships. Co-workers are all good friends outside of Barnes and Noble. Culture in the store is really fun and friendly. Sometimes customers can be rude but you shouldn't let that get to you. You're mostly walking and standing up. In your shift you're either in Receiving, Customer Information Desk, Kids Dept, or Cashiering.
Pro érvek
friendly co-workers who eventually become your friends, friendly and professional managers, positive environment and culture
Kontra érvek
low pay per hour, very low advancement opportunities, customers can be rude sometimes

just ok
Bookseller/Customer Service (Volt alkalmazott) –  Houston, TX2018, augusztus 7.
The manager was inconsiderate most times. There is no respect and growth opportunities for members of the lower staff. Overall it was not a great experience working there.

Great Business with Confusing Direction
Bookseller (Jelenlegi alkalmazott) –  East Coast2018, augusztus 6.
The company has a tremendously dedicated employee base. It is rare in retail to find people dedicated to the business and what it stands for like at Barnes & Noble. However, being dedicated to the idea of a bookstore does not always mean they have a good sense for business. The workload is high. The tools to accomplish the goals are few. There are some great leaders there but it is not adapting and changing fast enough to succeed long term.

Blessed to have had the job.
District Manager Assistant (Volt alkalmazott) –  Illinois2018, augusztus 6.
I was blessed with the manager I had. I was there to support her directly as her admin. She was extremely accommodating to me in regards to schedules. I have chronic health issues and since she traveled frequently, she was great when it came to my changes in schedule. As long as my work was done, she was good. Very much a "you scratch my back, I scratch yours' type of environment. It wasn't just me either. I seen her help many employees work out a work/home life balance. Unfortunately the company had to cut positions and mine was one of them. I have no ill will towards anyone.

Fun experience.
Barista (Volt alkalmazott) –  Chattanooga, TN2018, augusztus 6.
I loved it here. Many of pros that come with this job. Just not a high chance of advancement; especially when trying to make a living. The employees and customers that you see during each shift is the best part of working here.
Pro érvek
Make your own drinks with a great discount, great area, friendly people, etc.

Over staffed, very low pay, chain corporate company, etc.

There were glory days!
Assistant Store Manager (Volt alkalmazott) –  Clearwater, FL2018, augusztus 6.
Once upon a time, BN was a great bookstore to work at. Then along came digital and it was never the same. All of the high-pressure sales pitches, salary freezes, position reductions seem to have flowed directly from the failed attempt at being a hardware creator.

Had they just stuck to what they did best they would be fine now. As it is BN does not know what it wants to be when it grows up.
Pro érvek
It is books & coffee!!!
Kontra érvek
Low pay, little security, few associates on the floor.

Not fun at all
Cashier (Volt alkalmazott) –  Dearborn, MI2018, augusztus 4.
Would not recommend to work here, the manager’s were not very nice they would throw you under the bus even if you didn’t mess up. The coworkers were the only good thing about working here

I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Barnes & Noble. Retail, in general, can be a difficult industry, but I truly believe that Barnes & Noble is as good as it gets.
