I had been working for B&N for almost 20 years when new management came in, and strange things started happening there. The new Manager installed a mailbox to put our assignments in, but my projects were never in my box. I was never scheduled on days... — read more
WE WARNED YOU B&N EMPLOYEES FOR YEARS TO GET OUT!
And only now you're complaining? Really? (See article below) It's nice to know that the disgusting B&N powers that be do not discriminate and make the NY employees just as miserable as they have at every other store. You long-term booksellers should... — read more
“The Flagship” is attempting to unionize
A handful of brave book sellers are attempting to unionize this very large and lucrative location. Look it up and if you feel so please support them. I used to work there the management can be rough I can only imagine the collateral damage this will... — read more
Will a LAWSUIT be the END OF BARNES & NOBLE?
Has anyone heard about a group of employees suing the company?
Unethical, cutthroat and disrespectful, the very definition of toxic, yet nothing is done. It’s like management does not care and wants this place to be as unpleasant as possible.
This company can't keep going for much longer.
Are sales are awful and no hours. People are quitting because they're not making enough money. I can't see our store staying open much longer. The company has to be doing very poorly.
MORE BAD NEWS, MORE CLOSINGS
Barnes and Noble Booksellers, a fixture at the Town Center Corte Madera mall, plans to leave after more than 15 years at the site, and Arhaus, a home furniture company, is preparing to move into the space. The bookstore has plans to close its shop... — read more
Which store is closing in westchester county?
Now they are opening a new store in Hartsdale New York. There’s no way they can have four stores for a such a small geographic area. Will Scarsdale, White Plains, and or Yonkers clothes what do you think?
Everyone knew the $25 B&N Membership was a huge ripoff so what do they do now?
Barnes & Noble launches $40 annual membership service. LOL This company is truly INSANE! Just shut and lock the doors and go home everyone!
5th anniversary of 3000 plus layoff
February 12 marked FIVE YEARS that BN “laid off” over 3000 and reported it as half that. Has the company gotten better since firing loyal employees? I say no.
The store manager is trying to find reason to fire me
Everyone who posted on this page has been right how this place works. This company is the worst! The management is so sleazy. Get out ASAP.
Good Press for B&N
There have been several articles highlighting the success of Daunt and B&N in the last few days. Our local store is a filthy mess and old and worn out. Do the people writing this stuff even go to the stores or speak to the booksellers? Rumor has it... — read more
B&N not loyal
Yuck. These ho-s ain’t loyal. This company is the epitome of corporate he-l. Should you acquire the contract of my school, I will not apply for the job.
I'm shocked what is going on here.
My store manager has been telling other managers and some co-worker that particular employees are worthless and others they are easily replaceable. And these are hard working people. I'm fairly new to this company so I'm afraid to make waves but I'm... — read more
Maybe the store still has a chance to survive now that it’s horrible manager “retired”. She was nasty to customers and got rid of the good staff after COVID. The rest of the management team left too. Now the store is filled with young workers... — read more
Employee outrage as Barnes & Noble layoffs loom
Some of the employee comments: Is there any explanation as to why this holiday was so awful? I held off on making this post right before Christmas, with the hope that things would get better..but after experiencing the hellscape of Monday and... — read more
Barnes & Noble Top MGT Warns: GET OUT ASAP
I have contacts in many stores across the country and all the managers are seeing very weak sales for this time of year. And it's been trending badly for many, many months. I urge employees to find a more stable company ASAP because you're going to... — read more
Your store still stands but why
Here may be a contributing factors and probably the main reasons it still stands. B&N still has contracts with its surrounding schools to deliver text books and/or books for the schools libraries. Both k-12 and colleges. Book club events mainly old... — read more
Store before closing
Some knew in advance that their store would be closed, while some believed that their store would not be closed for some time, so they were surprised when it happened. The atmosphere in my store is terrible and I thought that it would be closed a... — read more
Barnes and Noble Layoffs 2023
Will there be any Barnes and Noble layoffs? Any chatter, news or rumors?
So many Barnes & Nobles Closing
There is no longer any Barnes & Noble in Boston. They used to have two. The Prudential Mall refused to renew their lease but now a classy Harvard Book Store is replacing it. Look for dozens of more B&Ns across the country to close in the Spring. — read more
Most accurate list of standing stores
Can somebody point me to an accurate list of the still-standing stores, please? Something that is preferably not a company resource, since I no longer have access to any of those. This is meant strictly to satisfy my own curiosity, but I would be... — read more

More employees being driven out and fired
Do all companies drive out long-term employees because they're making too much money? I've been pushed to quit and another Assistant Mgr is being forced to leave too. Anyone else having this happening at their place?
So glad I no longer work for this awful company
Now that I am out I can tell what I know. My first store. One of the assistant managers deliberately hired an alcoholic because they had it with the store manager who was a walking te---r. So not only did we have to deal with a psycho running the... — read more
How many stores are still standing?
Mine closed four years ago and I'll be honest, I thought all would be gone within five years. Looks like I might have been wrong. Barnes & Noble is not doing great judging by the majority of the posts here, but it's still functioning to an extent... — read more
I Really Can't Believe I Have To Say This

Barnes & Noble doesn't even know me anymore
I used to cherish my BN membership. I got discounts on new books, and every November B&N used to send me a colorful packet of wonderful coupons to use during the holidays. I got discounts on Godiva chocolates as well as books. During the year I used... — read more
I'm sorry for what happened to this company

BARNES & NOBLE CLOSING FASTER THAN BED, BATH & BEYOND
More B&Ns closed or closing in NY, PA, MD, OH, CA, MI, IL, NJ
I left BN for a job at a warehouse
This was two months ago. I haven't regretted that decision yet.
Even more Barnes & Noble stores closing
The latest getting axed is the Peabody store in Massachusetts and employees say it's because of the very bad management.
B&N old and worn out
Just went into a B&N for the first time in two years. The carpet was worn out and stained and the place looked like a dump. New tables big deal. You can’t put lipstick on this pig.
I finally landed a new job
It's a decent improvement in pay and, from what I can see, a huge improvement in company culture. I start in August so I'll stick it out here for a few more weeks, but once I leave, I have no intention of ever looking back. This was once a good... — read more

65 percent of employees approve of CEO
I can't believe that 65 percent of employees in good consciousness said they approve of our CEO. What is there to approve of? What did he do to improve our situation? All that has happened since he became CEO is more closings and more layoffs along... — read more
It's the end for Barnes & Noble in a sad pathetic way but we know the real cause!

When it comes to employee happiness, BN is a lost cause
