Cons: the hours, pay and corporate understanding of customers.
I enjoy working with people as well as serving people. I have a positive attitude and I enjoy being around people. Management liked me at Barnes and Noble, because I can't sit still. I'm always doing, (whether it's cleaning, restocking or washing dishes.)
