Bookstore Manager Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Bookstore Manager?

Bookstore Manager in Whittier:
"The Negotiator."
Pros: Independent bookstores are not often regulated in the same way most retail stores are. There are many things to be done at all times, but they are easily identifiable and can be completed with minimal staff. This creates a high degree of automaticity.
Cons: Working face to face and managing customers along with staff can be frustrating if you are not a personality match for the position.
