Stories

I am a former bookseller who was there for twelve years. I loved the job, but left because I was being forced out. I got a not at standards evaluation, followed by two IPs. The accusations came out of nowhere. I had to leave or else I would have been terminated due to poor job performance. SM manufactured things, ASM and MM went along. SM had favorites who could do anything.

I would like to hear from others with similar stories and also from curremt booksellers who are facing the same treatment.

Store Managers and the future of BN
We have a store manager that seems to have something to prove. She might have many years experience, but she is not as smart as she thinks she is - rather insecure, I'd say, and seems to favor the younger employees whom she can bluff. The ones who really work and hold the store together are the Assistant and Merchandise Managers. Too many young employees are allowed to hang out around and chat with the SM while others work their butts off. She can impress them more, I guess. Sadly, I think BN's future is dim. Maybe this is why such lax behavior is tolerated.
