As background: back when I attended University, I somehow landed a job at the Other Textbook Store. The off-campus bookstore; the store that wasn't affiliated with any large chain.
Like the Campus store, it saw a rush of students buying textbooks the week before class. And a rush of students selling the books the week of finals. There was also the time spent sorting/stacking/labeling during the week before the buying rush.
Other than that, I never spent any time at that store. It was a little extra money, but not a great deal. And I could get wholesale price on any books for classes I was registered for.
I fondly remember the end of each rush.
Anyway, I have sympathy for the guy who has to manage the Campus Store during the rush. It has to be as hard as any other part of handling the rush.
