Hey everyone! I hope someone can help me out with this. I know that my store manager printed out my first employee discount barcode, but that one expired and I figured it's time to print a new one so I can get my usual coffee after a shift. I can't seem to figure where I'm supposed to go to print of my barcode though. Can anyone help me out with this? A shift manager told me I had to do it on my home computer and go to bninside, but I just didn't understand. Thanks!

discount barcode
I've worked in 5 stores and we used the barcode on the outside of our paychecks.

Re: discount barcode
Anyone who gets direct deposit no longer receives a paper pay stub. Hence the need to log into the HR Access website and print a barcode. The nice thing is, the barcode lasts a month, so it's not like you have to do it every single week. If you don't have a printer at home, ask your MOD if they'll let you print it from the computer in the CRM office, which has a real web browser that you can print from.

I guess I work in a store where the people are more laid back....
...because if we are buying something in the store that we work in, we don't have to use that barcode. We just give out employee id number.

I actually found this out through a coworker, but if you're a permanent employee, despite whatever the expiration date may say, it doesn't expire. For instance, I'm using one that expired in February, but works perfectly fine.

That's true, the barcode isn't "smart," so the POS doesn't know whether you printed it yesterday or four months ago. This is more so you can shop at other stores; if they don't see a barcode with a current date, they're not obligated to honor your discount because for all they know, you quit three years ago.

Barcode issues
I go on to the hraccess site to print my barcode & nothing comes up. I can see my online discount number and I see where to click to get my barcode, but when I click on it nothing happens- I am on a Mac computer does that matter? I have tried several times to print both my last paycheck stub and my employee barcode & nada- I get nothing. Anyone else having issues with the link for the barcode or paycheck doing nothing? If you have figured out how to get the links to come up, please let me know. Thanks

Re: Barcode issues
The barcode should open up as a PDF file that you can then print, so make sure your Adobe Reader (or equivalent program) is up to date. Same with the plugin that allows you to open PDF files in-browser. If that still doesn't work, you might also try using a different browser (I assume you're using Safari; maybe try Firefox or Chrome instead).

Re: Barcode issues
Also, make sure your browser isn't blocking pop-ups, even though this should open in a new tab rather than a new window. I seem to remember having to tell my browser to allow something from the HR Access site in order to let the barcode display properly.

Re: Barcode issues
I'm having the same issue on my Android phone. Neither Chrome nor the native browser are properly displaying the popup.

Re: Barcode issues
Same here. BN has never been very adept at programming and instead of displaying the PDF so we could take a screenshot, a java launcher initiates an unending download. Very annoying.

Re: Barcode issues
I have the same problem. What I do is download the barcode on my laptop and then upload it to dropbox. Then I can access the barcode from the dropbox app on my phone. That has been working for me.

Re: Barcode issues
I found out that it was a pop-up blocker problem. If I disabled it for that website, it popped up with my bar code - so thankful for that. I am a college student with another barnes and noble in my home town. They always look at me crazy when I say I am an employee or I pull out an ancient pay stub from when I first worked there.

B&N Survival Guide.
If you want to keep your job tips:

Never call we listen it's a trap set up by corporate, always be looking for a better job but tell no one, don't gossip or complain on the job, be productive & stop worrying about what you can't control, don't trust anyone that works here, stay in school & get that degree, avoid conversations with DM's they can't be trusted, if hours are cut file for unemployment, save & invest some money, never show anger or stress on the job & always try to look happy, keep to yourself & avoid workplace drama, do whatever management wants & don't rock the boat, give no ideas or suggestions on how to improve anything, know that you max out on raises and will eventually stop getting raises, the longer you work here the more management wants you gone, if hours are reduced look at temp companies to make some money, file for food stamps if hours are reduced, ignore & avoid bad employees that create drama, laugh & have fun this company won't be around forever.

Re: B&N Survival Guide.
Really? I absolutely love working there! There's raise opportunities and chances to move up in position, the discount is great in my opinion because I love getting half off cafe items plus the discount on books, not to mention the fact that we can check out almost any hard cover book in the store for two weeks or take home/keep up to 5 stripped books a day do you seriously think that's not awesome?? And just an added bonus, my store has awesome employees and I love working there more than anything! I'm sorry you're having such a difficult time at your store but don't say BN is shitty in general because you're having a bad experience. :P

Even with the employee discount you are over paying for books. Books are much cheaper online. Look at comparison shopping sites & eBay.

Abe books, ebay and Goodwill thrift stores have the best prices on books. I have worked for Barnes & Noble for six years and I never buy my books here. The discount for books is never worth the low pay and bad management that you have to deal with while working here. I'm leaving next week and won't ever look back.

All of us deserve better so find a way to quit retail hell.

Right!
You are so right! You should quit immediately and put your megabrain and superb skills to work at one of your other numerous terrific oppotunities. After all you prepared yourself for greatness in this life. Now go use your hard-earned talents. Good for you. Now go in and quit this morning!

That went bad quickly
I worked for B&N for almost 8 years. Although I am no longer with the company I am actually glad I got to experience everything I did. At one point I wanted to grow and make this company part of my career but again location, location, location!! Not all stores are created equally and like any company it's who is inside those walls is what creates the experience. I would never trade in my experience for the world as it has prepared me for my career today. In my career there I had some great store managers and managements teams and some not so great. The company could use a refresher on how to manage people course (as I was a manager I can speak on this, as I could have used this as well, DM's especially!!!) my advice is make the most out of it, learn as much from those that are willing to teach and seek it as an opportunity to meet life long friends, I know I did and I have. Is it the best job in the world? probably not, but trust me it could be a lot worse. Grass isn't always greener on the other side, it's where you water it.

Little or no staff support from BN in it entirety!
My sister works for BN.... Horrible corporate office! No help! Hopefully there eventually close all stores.... with the poor managerial staff.... We listen is a joke as well. Mark Bottini needs to visit the stores and EMPLEMENT new guide lines to support staff. Listen to concerns! .... Replace lazy stay in the office managerial staff!

I work BN College wishing our discount expanded to B& N and wasn't just only for college stores .
We just use our Employee ID number for discount .( no barcodes) If you go to another store you must have a paycheck along with ID # and you'll receive your discount .
As far as direct deposit you still have access to https://hraccess.bn-corp.com to print pay checks and any financial advisor will tell you that you should have paycheck printed and saved for tax/ legal purposes.
I can access on google chrome from my smart phone and print pay checks directly from home to wifi printer . Much easier than work.

login
I'm trying to print a pay stub on the hraccess website, but I dont know what my login is. Is there a standard format for a first time login? Or a combination of the passwords and id numbers used for work?
