Customer Service (Jelenlegi alkalmazott) –  Michigan2017, december 13.
A typical day is re-shelving books and helping customers find what they are looking for. You must be able to hand sell products to be successful in this company.

Sales Associate (Volt alkalmazott) –  San Luis Obispo, CA2017, december 12.
Great part time job with lots of available shifts.
Customers are generally not in too much of a hurry, there for are less cranky. Café discount keeps you alive and broke.
Can you say fresh baked cookies?!

Unpleasant and Poor Management
Bookseller (Volt alkalmazott) –  Glendale, CA2017, december 11.
Barnes and Noble was a very difficult place to work at due to the poor management. They were inefficient and struggled to lead employees, often times taking advantage of good employees, and abusing their power.

This place is great for a student....not for a serious career
Book Seller (Jelenlegi alkalmazott) –  Wilberforce, OH 453842017, december 11.
There aren't many benefits and the pay is really low, but if you are a college student its adequate pay. It is enough to get you some food, but not enough to pay your bills.
Pro érvek
Fun, Lively, Energetic

low pay, low hours

An amazing place to work and always something new to talk about. I work with some of the best people.
Head Cashier (Jelenlegi alkalmazott) –  Roanoke, VA2017, december 11.
I will always think of Barnes and Noble as a second home. I was lucky to work with the same basic team all eight years and knew they had my back. I will hope to remain in some capacity as part time or seasonal if I can work it out. I had to look for something else when new hires are not far behind me in pay and I have years on them in experience.
Pro érvek
Just about everything was a good thing.
Kontra érvek
No real advancement after a point and need a better paying job.

Barnes and Noble is a results driven business that produces results
Cafe Manager (Volt alkalmazott) –  South Burlington, VT2017, december 9.
Barnes and Noble is a company that looks for and achieves results, by offering employees expectations and coaching on a regular basis. They have daily meetings with the staff reviewing successes and opportunities of meeting sales needs.
Working for Barnes and Noble really taught me how to drive and lead my team to consistently reach the next goal.
I left Barnes and Noble because my family needs made it difficult for me to give the attention to this position, that I felt it required.

Wonderful place to work part- time!
Sales Associate (Jelenlegi alkalmazott) –  Manhasset, NY2017, december 8.
If you are in college and need some extra pay this is a great place to build basic work skills before graduation. The staff consists of an amazing group of individuals that are diverse and talented. Management is excellent and always available to answer questions regarding work schedules or the overall work environment in general.

Stressful, No Advancement
Café Barista (Volt alkalmazott) –  Fort Collins, CO2017, december 8.
Not really any room for advancement unless you had been working with the company for years.

Kept just between 30 to 40 hours to make sure they didn't have to offer benefits.

Very strict on making sure everything is perfect but are strict on no over time.

Productive and fun workplace. Love the people!
Head Cashier/Sales Associate (Jelenlegi alkalmazott) –  College Station, TX2017, december 7.
You have to straighten up the store, restock shelves and put up displays. Things are pretty straightforward and structured with enough leeway to augment things as needed. The people are super fun to work with and the managers are fairly understanding and willing to work with you when they can. Customer service is a huge part of the job and multitasking can help. I've learned about efficiently performing tasks and being able to help difficult customers and situations.
Pro érvek
Discounts, coworkers, flexibility

I miss working here
Barista/Cashier (Volt alkalmazott) –  Edison, NJ2017, december 7.
It was always fun to go into work and be greeted by the work family. The other Baristas were amazing and the assistant store manager at the time was absolutely phenomenal! The only part of the job that was difficult would have been the rushes, but once you get good enough at the job it's not so bad.
Pro érvek
discounted products, decent break times
Kontra érvek
lack of staffing

A lot of work goes into making a bookstore great
Bookseller (Volt alkalmazott) –  CT2017, december 7.
If you love books and reading this should be a great place to work, although you'll have to do your reading on your own time. It's a common misconception that booksellers hang around and read when there's nothing to do. Actually, there are never enough hours or employees to get all the jobs done and so you're really expected to hustle.

You can expect a typical day to be a lot of running around, or at least walking at a very fast pace-always. Each day is a different challenge. Aside from answering many phone calls, assisting customers in locating their items, placing orders, ringing up purchases at the registers, and keeping the store tidy, you could spend time shelving the never-ending supply of newly arrived merchandise, taking down displays and putting up new displays, dusting the sales floor, making sure all sections are in their correct company-approved order, and assisting customers with trouble-shooting their e-reader devices.

My favorite part of the job: finding just the right book and knowing I've helped the customer, or when a returning customer let me know they enjoyed a recommendation I'd made. Also participating in or directing events for kids and families, like storytimes.

The hardest part: disappointing a customer, for whatever reason, be it that their book is not in stock, their order didn't arrive on time, etc. It can be kind of crazy to see how that might really ruin a person's day.

Another difficulty being seen and felt everywhere is online retailers. They're not going away, though, and all brick-and-mortar stores are struggling to remain relevant. It
  több... can be frustrating to lose sales to the internet after working to assist a customer in locating their item only to have them say they'll order online.  kevesebb

Limited Growth
Bookseller (Volt alkalmazott) –  Savannah, GA2017, december 7.
The work was fine but could be considered very repetitive. The company only hired part time staff so that they wouldn't have to pay for benefits which limits the growth as an employee
Pro érvek
Calm environment
Kontra érvek
No benefits, limited growth potential

Awful management
Cafe Lead (Volt alkalmazott) –  Palmdale, CA2017, december 6.
Self explanatory - terrible management at every level including regional. They just kept replacing bad managers with worse ones. The store will be closed in the next year.

I’m working there currently as a seasonal employee. It’s usually pretty busy and everyone is really nice. I can’t work Friday, Saturday, or Monday and they still work with me!

Merchandise Manager (Volt alkalmazott) –  Texas2017, december 5.
The company is always in a transition because it's trying to compete with their major competitors. The management team is expected to always perform. Everyone is passionate about at least one genre in the store and it's fun to learn about new literature. The discounts are great, especially in the cafe.

Discounts, staff, products
