Barnes & Noble is a company driven by the principle that bookselling is important work.  For us, there is no more rewarding experience than helping customers step into new worlds through literature, reach their aspirations through books that teach and inspire, or discover new writers that entertain and enlighten.

Our booksellers make the Barnes & Noble experience special for our customers, and we recognize their contributions and make enormous efforts to create a rewarding career experience for each of them by offering competitive compensation and benefits packages.  In addition, we actively promote from within – more than 60% of our store managers started as booksellers.
We believe a great bookstore is also a reflection of its community.  We pioneered the concept of a retail store as a community center, and annually host close to 100,000 community events nationwide.
