From Virginia — 10/09/2009

I've been with B&N for just over a year, and it seems that a majority of reviewers have had strikingly disparate experiences to mine. My managers treat me like a human being. They ask for input and discuss some decisions. The only problem in the store is BookMaster. I hate our lame search engine. Otherwise, if we could only convey to the customers that we're Barnes and Noble and not Borders (maybe with a large sign on the front of the building, I'll tell corporate), things would be peachy. Sure, a few of the employees are insane and the kid's lead doesn't like kids, but nowhere is perfect. Better pay would be great, and more hours as well, though I've found that most of my coworkers want part-time hours.
