Sales Associate (Former Employee), sandersville, ga. – June 29, 2015
Pros: friendly environment
Cons: not enough hours
A typical day at work considered me to build relationship with co-workers and allowing me to learn team work. The co-workers were people i'll consider as family. The hardest part of the job was leaving at the end of my shift because it was like i loved working there but had to clock out when it was time due to the lack of hours giving to me. I love to work and coming in contact with different people; I'm a people person.

The work was more than could be done in the amount of time you were scheduled for. There was no air conditioning in the store and the summers were horrible. Employees would work until they almost passed out

Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Columbia, SC – June 27, 2015
It was a good place to work because of the customers I came in contact with on a daily bases as well as those I had never met before. The store manager seemed to spend more time away from her job which led to me running the store and going to school at the same time.
Lead sales associate (Former Employee), Morristown, TN – June 26, 2015
The pay was terrible considering what was required of employees. No weekends off. I worked nights and weekends so everyone else could be off. Managers wanted to throw me to the wolves with a full line of customers, while they hung out in the back gossiping. Bad bad bad place to work
Lead Cashier/Supervisor (Current Employee), Danville, KY – June 25, 2015
I really enjoyed working at Barnes and Noble. The management was great. I really felt like my opinion was heard and taken into consideration. I also really enjoyed working with my coworkers they were all pleasant.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Big Sandy, TN – June 25, 2015
Pros: Great team of co-workers
Cons: Payrate is too low
Co-workers and company team were a great bunch. The hours were never too long but the physical labor was very tough. The environment made the job worth it but the pirate should be increased dramatically.
Lead Sales Associate (Former Employee), Kentwood, MI – June 25, 2015
Pros: good customers
Cons: poor pay, poor managment
The hardest part of the job is having to be very flexible on hours while having to work your hardest and not get the proper compensation. It is very straight forward customer service so being able to handle a variety of people is a must. This includes the Management, which will most likely be a catty female who constantly gossips. There is a risk of robbery and if this occurs, the company doesn't console you. The most enjoyable part of the job is having return customers who truly enjoy seeing you.
