"Be fair to customers and our employees,

promote literacy, be kind to the environment

and remain financially viable so we may continue."


Do you like books? Would you like to help fellow booklovers find their next favorite read? Do you want to find one-of-a-kind treasures that you never knew existed?

America's largest family-owned new and used book retailer, Half Price Books, is looking for enthusiastic and motivated people to work in our fun, fast-paced retail environment to fill the position of Bookseller.

Every day, Booksellers get to work on a variety of tasks, including delivering quality customer service, sharing their knowledge about books, movies, and music with customers and co-workers, operating the cash register, shelving new merchandise, and buying books from the public. Each day can be unique and filled with surprises! We're looking for people who have strong communication skills and a positive attitude. Ideal candidates are dependable, hard-working and independently-motivated.

In addition to the pleasure of working at a great place with great people and getting paid for it you'll receive a compensation package that is enhanced by benefits including: reliable hours/shifts, paid vacation and holidays, paid sick time, health insurance, 401(k), and more. Perks also include an employee discount on almost all of the already low-priced merchandise available in Half Price Books stores.

Half Price Books is a place for people who are interested in preserving, recycling and passing along information and entertainment in every form. We buy and sell books, records, CDs, collectibles, magazines, videos, DVDs and games. We believe books should fill our lives, not our landfills, so we also strive to donate and recycle what we cannot sell.

We promote from within so most everyone starts right here, as a Bookseller. Are you ready to join the Half Price Books family? Fill out an employment application online or bring your application by the store today. We'd love to meet you and say hello.

Half Price Books is an equal opportunity employer.

    There are so many pros to this job, but if you love books and enjoy working with people who share that love, go ahead and join the team. They treat their employees very well, making sure everyone has full breaks and rests during difficult moments like inventory, not to mention the discounts on books and the benefits. They genuinely care about the work and the people, and I appreciate it so much.

    Customer service is often a challenge, but that is not unique to HPB.
