If you were in charge, what would you do to make Books-A-Million a better place to work?
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!
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.)
How long does it take books a million to let you know if you have the job or not?
It was a few days for me. Mostly because they were understaffed at the time (still are, honestly).
What advice would you give the CEO of Books-A-Million about how to improve it?
Customers tend to distrust a store when they feel pushed to sign up for things employees must promote. Ease back on that.
Yes I have a tattoo on both of my forearms and i constantly wore short sleeves, they will also hire if you have nose/eyebrow/ilp piercings.
