If you were to leave Barnes & Noble, what would be the reason?
Asked March 24, 2017
I would suggest leaving Barnes & Noble if you like to eat, wear clothes, and have a roof (of any sort other than a piece of cardboard) over your head.
Answered March 24, 2017
I applied a week ago and the manager was very prompt about calling me back. I had an interview in the store today which went okay. I was asked about my availability, if i was comfortable selling memberships, etc. However, I could tell that the manager either wasn't interested in me or didn't want to do the interview because they were not responsive at all. A bit rude in fact. It only lasted five maybe ten minutes. Although the manager said I would be receiving a call tomorrow, I won't be taking any offers. Management with bad attitude is a nightmare waiting to happen.

If you are a person comfortable living in your parents' basement forever or perhaps getting 10 plus roomates to split a below market rent then Barnes & Noble is the place for you. I'm unaware of ANY company that pays a lower wage.

They don't accept paper resumes at the store anymore, due to privacy issues (i.e. not letting your personal info lay around the break room LOL).But do apply online, then go to your store and ask for the hiring manager. Meet, talk briefly, tell them you've applied and indicate your enthusiasm. It paid off for me. There is NO substitution for putting a face behind an online application!

Confidence and politeness is key
Answered January 11, 2018
Yes, you can request days off through the scheduling app. In my experience, the managers are very accommodating. Schedules are made 3 weeks in advance, so just make sure you put your request in before that. If you don't make the request in time, you always have the option to post the shift for other employees to take, and most of the time someone will take the shift right away.
