Low pay, low stress (for retail)
Receiving Manager (Former Employee) – Florida – May 23, 2016
It's a book store. The atmosphere is pretty relaxed for a retail establishment, although that is changing with their focus on Nook Sales.
Work is generally scheduled in short, 4 to 8 hour shifts. It's called flex scheduling.
For non-management, the job is pretty low stress, basic retail: finding books, chatting with customers, running a register, sorting and alphabetizing books, etc.
I was with the company for 5 years, 2 of them part time. I started making minimum wage and made it up to management making $10.50 an hour.
Low stress in non-management positions
Terrible pay and benefits.
