An account of their disgraceful treatment of one employee.
And in his own words.
Joe was an employee at Waterstones for over a decade, and a very good and knowledgable one at that. But Waterstones were taken over by HMV, who were more in mind of a Book supermarket and used Joe’s blog to get rid of him. In it Joe barely refers to his employer but when he does he highlights misconduct by his “evil boss”, and once refers to his employer as “B@st@rdstones”.
It appears the media have picked up on Joes story, as have many of the authors he worked with in the past. Have a read of his blog. Then shop elsewhere.
