They'll tell you everything you want to hear to get you to work here but you'll discover the truth in your first week."
"I've worked at Barnes & Noble for 2 months now and it's cool. I liked the job because of the location and also because I knew I wouldn't get too many terrible customers. But this job sucks. Management is terrible. They pay minimum wage and we do so much work. It takes over a year to get a raise and it's only 25 cents. The whole atmosphere is kind of depressing and they make it clear that they don't care about their workers, it's all about the customers. The training is no good, they fire you if you don't sell memberships, managers have the worst attitudes, it is very boring. They don't give much hours. The job is physically demanding and they aren't lenient with workers who may still be in school. All in all, the job isn't too good. Even the music is bad!"
"Large company with a bright future but lacking focus."
"Big company, nice people, 700 locations, great experience."

It's a great group of people, however the company is having some challenges finding it's place and coming up with exactly the right product for the Barnes & Noble customer base. After some missteps under previous management a new leadership team is trying to get NOOK back on the right path."
"It was good environment and fun to work at Nook. Coworkers were excellent and management were terrific."
"They are a very nice company to work for. Tools needed for PR job were dated which made the job difficult but over-all the company is good to it's employees as long as you do the job you were hired for."
