Long hours on your feet the whole time, not that much down time, a lot of tedious (but necessary) shelving and organizing work

    I worked at Barnes & Noble part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Cross-training, several opportunities for diversitifcation

    Cons

    Intentionally understaffed, poor response for backup in events of heavy business

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be aware when you schedule different departments. It may be easy to have one person in cafe in the morning and one in the evening, but there better be backup that responds efficiently
