"I have worked for Barnes & Noble Education for what will be 8 years in July. Due to economic decline pertaining to the Coronavirus and having to relocate the growth with my company has come to a halt which could be permanent. Great company and I have grown quickly and managed many different facets of the business but it appears that I may not have to ability to grow any further."

"The people at Barnes & Noble were great to work with. However, the company wasn't and continues to do poorly financially."

"Unless you are looking for a very short-term job for some spending cash, DO NOT WORK HERE! As sales get worse, hours get cut, managers get mean and employees quickly hate the job. 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!"

"I've worked at Barnes & Noble in the NOOK group for 4 years. 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."

"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."
