You must love books
Bookseller (Former Employee) –  Waterbury, CTSeptember 23, 2013
Otherwise this job will be terrible. You get paid very little, unless you're management you aren't guaranteed very many hours and so your benefits get cut. Super awesome way to treat your employees, B&N. Unfortunately they have to do this because it seems this company won't be around for much longer.
Pros
Books
Cons
Dying business

A good place to work
Assistant Store Manager (Current Employee) –  Lansing, MIDecember 17, 2017
Overall it is a good place to work but the company is undergoing major changes and this is causing lots of stresses in pretty much all areas. Even with this it is on the more laid back side of retail
Pros
Management Pay, Discount, Laid back atmosphere
Cons
Poor communication, Poor accountability, Little standards, Unstable future

It was a great ride
Host/Barista (Former Employee) –  Folsom, CADecember 16, 2017
My job, especially at first, was fantastic! I really enjoyed my job when business was booming, but overtime, the started to become slower and slower. I don't know how busy it is nowadays, but at the time when I worked there, It was slow-paced. Despite that though, the people you meet while working there does make it worth while.
Pros
Friendly people, great environment, stellar food
Cons
Slow-paced, supplies not ordered on time
