Barnes and Noble is a sinking ship. The company can't compete with Amazon, and it's going under fast. Because of this, I, along with all the other full-timers in the store, except for the managers, showed up to work one Monday morning to find out we were all being summarily laid-off, because we were part of an "outdated business model". In reality, our benefits were just too expensive. The company gave us no warning whatsoever, and while I understand that Barnes and Noble simply can't keep up with Amazon, or even our own website for that matter, the company was cruel, and it did those layoffs all across the country. It won't be long until everybody left there is let go soon. Additionally, the company is just not a good place to work; it's governed by incompetence, spite, and favoritism. Don't waste your time with Barnes and Noble.
