A typical day at work: checkout, stocking, calls, conciliation.
What you learned: checkout, stocking, calls, conciliation.
Management: good overall.
Workplace culture: some gossiping/nastiness, passive-agressiveness from some colleagues, a bit arrogant and not spontaneous, but ok overall.
The hardest part of the job: repetitiveness, dress code (I tend not to like dress codes anyway.. so, it's a detail), not many hours offered even in a full-time job and moreover pay is low (you can't really make a living with the hours/wage they offer), not a stable schedule and strict inflexible rules, not active.
The most enjoyable part of the job: being surrounded by books, counsel/talk with customers about various subjects depending on the kind of book they're looking for.

Unionist in some stores, and doesn't really help, on the contrary.
