Productive and well managed workplace with great employees.
Bookseller/Cashier (Current Employee) –  Livingston, NJNovember 19, 2013
This job has helped me improve my interpersonal skills by up selling each transaction at the cafe. The managers and co-workers are very friendly and have helped me learn and improve. The hardest part of the job is the busy times when there is a long time. The most enjoyable part of the job is interacting with customers.
Pros
Discounts on books and food, allowed to check out books for personal reading
Cons
Only trained in one department.

Chaotic workday with poor management.
Temporary Employee (Former Employee) –  Columbus, OHMay 23, 2018
As a temporary employee you are thrown into the workday with little experience, which I tend to prefer. However, every long term employee there treats you as disposable and acts like your boss. It can be a very frustrating job.

Sales and Inventory Manager (Current Employee) –  Fredericksburg, VAMay 23, 2018
Th work environment is mostly relaxed and its highly encouraged to learn about the product they're selling. There is lifting involved but the reward is being able to see what new books are coming into the store.
Pros
Surrounded by books and people who tend to enjoy them.
Cons
balancing tasking with customer service
