Online sales and better online advertising would be a nice start. And definitely get rid of the rules about how many cards and magazines booksellers have to make each day. Get rid of magazines entirely, actually. Too much money and time lost. Having to sell those stupid things to customers makes every transaction less personal, and makes customers uncomfortable and less likely to come back!

Low salary, NO GM, District manager is unpleasant

Answered September 25, 2019

It depends on the manager but usually yes. It does sometimes affect your sales, though especially if a lot of older people come in the store.

The typical interview questions about why you want to work there, how you'd deal with upset customers, etc. We also spoke about how much I read and what type of books I like. Also about sale initiatives, and how well could you sell the extras to customers (magazines for millionaires, the Books-A-Million membership, donation drives, etc.)

Bi-weekly is the correct answer.

Depends on the District Manager. Legally a store can in most states but you can’t run a register so most stores won’t.

Answered August 17, 2018

The pressure to sell those magazine subscriptions and if you don't sell enough of them, they cut your hiurs.

Answered November 8, 2018

Customers tend to distrust a store when they feel pushed to sign up for things employees must promote. Ease back on that.
