What questions did they ask during your interview at Barnes & Noble Education?It was really chill at Santa Fe, but the guy who did the interviews left, so I can’t say that it’s that easy still.

How laid back is this job? I already have a full-time job, so I'm only looking for something that really isn't too hard or physical to work on my off days from my current job for extra income.It really depends on the store and the season. Holidays and back to school are very busy and hectic, but, otherwise, it's not bad. How physical it is depends on what department you're in, but I would expect to deal with large boxes of product unless you're a barista.
