I enjoyed my benefits, but was asked to have too much responsibility for the pay. My store's staff was pretty great, customers were not the nightmares I had heard about, but there were always a few exceptions.
Ability to cross train across many areas of the store, but not a lot of potential for advancement.
The decisions being made at the corporate level do not appear to be saving or keeping company in business, but to eventually close.
On a store level, it was great. At a corporate level it is same old same old. After the full time layoffs, part time employees just barely being paid over minimum wage are now tasked with picking up the slack.
Work for another bookstore, what's left of them. That, or open your own.
Healthcare and benefits for FT, great team.
