Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – February 10, 2018
I transferred from one store to another and spent the bulk of my time at the second location. Because the store was small it was a very hands on experience. I learned that it was publishers were those responsible for the prices of books and I took more pride in how our store did to meet our goal. It was a great experience.

Great part time job with lots of available shifts. Customers are generally not in too much of a hurry, there for are less cranky. Café discount keeps you alive and broke. Can you say fresh baked cookies?!

If you are in college and need some extra pay this is a great place to build basic work skills before graduation. The staff consists of an amazing group of individuals that are diverse and talented. Management is excellent and always available to answer questions regarding work schedules or the overall work environment in general.

Usually pretty easy going shifts and easy work. Management places a big emphasis on customer service and personal selling. In addition, over the last couple of months there has a big shift in combining the two sides (restaurant and selling floor) into one.

Managers did not do the kind of work expected of them, and instead left it to the other associates most of the time. Whenever big events came up, the store manager would buy only a handful of the employees food/beverages, and not the whole of the store. Seriously showed favoritism in this way, which is not a good thing for any company.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – August 31, 2017
A typical day was either helping out at customer service or register. You learn how to sell and work in a team there. Management was overall good, they usually helped fix problems. It was a nice culture, there was no drama or fighting really in the store. It was very relaxed and enjoyable while working there. I hardly felt stressed. The hardest part was probably selling memberships because of the high cost, but I did enjoy my associates and the feel of the place.

For lovers of literature, it is an exciting and fun place to work. The more you read, the more you know, the more interesting interactions you have with customers. The managers actively care about employees, and are willing to take you under their wing and teach you.
