Productive and Fun
Café Server/Barista (Jelenlegi alkalmazott) –  El Paso, TX2018, augusztus 16.
Keeps you on the move for the most part regardless if its busy or not. Recommend as a starter job to help develop customer service skills and ability to multi-task.

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!
Pro érvek

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.
Pro érvek

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

Cafe Lead Barista (Volt alkalmazott) –  Minot, ND2018, július 30.
I worked in the Cafe. I enjoyed the work for the most part. The Cafe Manager was exceptional when I worked there. They were extremely understanding as an individual, and tried to be fair to everyone. The Cafe manager also gave everyone a chance to be candid with them, and wanted to make sure everyone was comfortable in his/her position in the Cafe. This is the only reason I gave any stars to the "Management" portion.

However, every other manager I dealt with was very distrustful of me specifically. How can you expect your employees to do their best and want to be at work if you have a manager hovering over your shoulder, watching your every move? Given, I was a new employee at the time, but they treated me like I was shady, and like I didn't earn my place in lower level management. Little to no respect was given to me. I understand respect must be earned, but I didn't do anything to lose it in the first place. I felt targeted.

There's also entirely too much going on during rushes. There are approx. 15-20 timers constantly going off at varying times. It's hard to focus on customer service/making drinks and food when you all you can hear is incessant beeping. Very distracting and overwhelming at times.

Also, the managers were extremely focused on an employee's monetary value to the company. I understand wanting your employees to upsell as much as possible, but it got to the point where they would lecture me for not selling enough. It's a cafe. People want coffee, not dinner, at least most people. I feel they could be more aware of who they're selling to. They would bring
  több... back sales receipts once an hour, telling us we're not selling enough food or add-ons. As if we can completely control what people are buying. I ended up feeling like a number, not a person.

I don't feel it's a bad company to work for. Perhaps it's a different experience at other locations. For me, I just wasn't happy there. That's not to say it hasn't changed, but who knows.

Barnes and Noble
Barista/Cashier (Volt alkalmazott) –  Springfield, IL2018, július 27.
Barnes and noble was an enjoyable place to work, simple job that comes with the benefits of books and coffee. the employers of Barnes and noble (at least at the time I applied) are willing to hire those with little to no experience which is greatly appreciated.

Barnes and nobel is a great place to work. I learned so much goid for starting out maybe not a career if you like money. If you love to read need a second income then this is for you. Pop cultuer relavent enviorment so find your inner nerd and someone will relate.

Okay
BARISTA (Volt alkalmazott) –  Kansas City, MO2018, július 12.
Not the best job ever, but good enough. Not very much room for growth. The company is tanking, so I would advise looking elsewhere. You do get some pretty nice employee perks, though.

Stressful work environment
Barista, Cashier (Volt alkalmazott) –  Newark, DE2018, július 10.
While a lot of the people at this location were super nice the amount of customers served hourly for the cafe is terrifying. they'll work you 39.5 hours a week so they don't need to give you benefits.

Barista (Volt alkalmazott) –  Orlando, FL2018, július 9.
Any gripes I could have of the job were entirely my own fault. They treated me kindly, and with the exception of a few bad customers, I loved working there. Shame that they only gave me a few hours a week.

One of the best jobs I've had
Cafe Barista (Volt alkalmazott) –  Vancouver, WA2018, július 5.
Incredibly fun, great place to work if you consider yourself nerdy. Everyone is great with each other, it's like it's one big family. Plus books and coffee/tea! How better can life get? I went in knowing absolutely NOTHING about coffee. I had wonderful coworkers and trainers to get me up to speed and I had a TON of fun being a barista.
Pro érvek

A stressful workplace where nothing is ever management's fault
Barista (Volt alkalmazott) –  Chico, CA 959282018, július 4.
While this job isn't really that difficult, it's outstandingly stressful due to the lack of proper leadership. Management is very shortsighted and will never accept any responsibility for the things they do.

Decent job
Cafe Server/Barista (Volt alkalmazott) –  New York, NY2018, június 27.
The coworkers made this job so much better. The management had a tendency to ask you for above and beyond without even giving raises or an incentive to go above and beyond. But it’s a good job to have while you go for something more permanent.

Review
Barista/Cashier (Volt alkalmazott) –  Allen Park, MI2018, június 18.
Barnes and Noble was not a terrible place to work, but the manager was not the best and I couldn't take that they cut everyone's hours. The dress code was very linnet so that was nice!

People were great to work with.
Barista (Volt alkalmazott) –  University Park, PA2018, június 14.
I had a lot of fun working at the Cafe. The people were great and every day was different. Learning the ropes of the machines and the cash register were interesting and something that I will have forever. The customers were always nice. The fast paced atmosphere was challenging at times but overall rewarding.

Barista/Cashier (Jelenlegi alkalmazott) –  Norman, OK2018, június 14.
Relaxed, easy environment. As long as you did your job duties, you could read, hang out, and basically just maintain the cafe. Everyone is very friendly and helpful.
