Used to work here and the manager was a complete witch. Still feel sad! I liked my fellow cashiers. The booksellers and management were snotty. Barnes and Noble is a much better place to work - Borders is a very punitive work environment, very militaristic in its view of employees, and very hierarchical. Maybe you wouldn't have closed if you treated your employees better, babes?
