    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Books Kinokuniya

    Pros

    Pretty chill, Easy monotonous scanning that require speed and accuracy. A lot of counting.

    Cons

    Remember how many books you counted or scanned. If you cant remember you just have to recount or rescan the books, which will reduce your speed. But, accuracy is important

    Pros

    Average interview, friendly staff, you'll meet amazing customers, self-satisfaction when receiving positive feedbacks.

    Cons

    Can be physical as your work revolves around putting books according to its location and the number of books can be a lot most of the times. Would be even more tiring on weekends. Dont believe what you see in the movies.
