Response from a Borders Employee
This response to materials posted at this website is from a
... I am an employee of Borders in
[removed], but I happen to agree with almost everything that appears
on this page. My one contention is with an intimation that borders does
not hire highly intelligent employees. I would say that 90% of my
co-workers have a BA, quite a few have masters degrees, and a handful
have been accepted into Phd programs. Borders has always claimed that
it's success derives from highly intelligent employees. They do not
however seem to mention this so much when the issue of wages arises
(thus the drive for unionization of which our store recently became the
[removed] union shop in the chain). Good luck in your efforts to keep
Borders from driving your stores out of business but beware, they are
crafty SOB's in Ann Arbor. You should also include local music and
video stores as well as cafe's in this effort as Borders and Barnes and
Noble have their thumbs in all of these pies.
