If you were in charge, what would you do to make Barnes & Noble Education a better place to work?
Bump the pay. The actual activities are fine, management is good, corporate seems decent. A solid $1.50 per hour across the board would push the lower level employees to care a tiny bit more.
They ask questions about your availability, about past work experience, how you would handle certain situations, like a co-worker showing up late to work, and asked us about our personalities and things we enjoy doing.
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. He mainly asked us how we would handle certain situations, things about our personalities, and about our availability (which he said was the main reason he would hire us).
During rush, you will have at least one customer every 30 minutes who complains, throws a tantrum, and makes a scene because they either didn't set their financial aid up correctly or destroyed their rental books and were charged a fee.
