Got the good news today. Im Out!!!! Cant wait for monday to come so I can quit.
It's been quiet among the field lately. Have you not noticed people are gone? There have been layoffs but they've been done so quietly that no one has even noticed. Look at PSC-store count is way up but staffing at PSC is down. Some familiar faces... read more
RUMOR is spreading around that Follett has plans of rewriting contracts that include university employees being paid by Follett. In other words, Follett is eliminating ALL university employees from contracts. The rumor is that they are too expensive... read more
Leaders working in Westchester home office are running around like there's a fire somewhere. My boss always looks like she got maybe two hours of sleep. Something's up and it can't be good. My team and I don't get as much done under these conditions... read more
Anybody know why the town hall was cancelled in January? Was looking for an update on the bonus for this year. I still have hopes.
I have had a jobs but never have I hated having to come into work every day. The bullshit that goes on is,becoming way to much and the stress is killing me.
The future of this industry belongs to Amazon. Follett is setting itself up for sale. Don't fool yourself into believing otherwise unless you want to try for a cashout or a job with the true innovator. You probably have 2-3 years tops before the... read more
An official 'release' in response to the voice results emerged today. Apparently said results were tabulated in late December and Griffith has been meeting with an 'executive committee' to interpret the results. The tl;dr is; -Associates want... read more
Enough of the dramatic waiting games here. When will JC, ML, DG, MG, TK get catapulted out of Follett to a heaping pile of stinky, you know what, where they belong? None of them have made one meaningful contribution to follett other than drag this... read more
It occurred to me as I was reading through some recent posts....what tools has Follett Management proposed, tested and thus implemented in the past 3 years? I am truly struggling to come up with ONE new tool that has helped a Follett Manager do their... read more
With most school out of rush, how did price matching go? With the ever so encouraging message sent out by Scholl, not, yesterday, essentially blaming the store if it fails. We had about 3 students willing to use it, they rolled it over to get more... read more

Rumor has it the offshore consultants are going home! Who is accountable for this mess!!!!
F you Follett!
It is likely to see layoffs before the end of next month. The company needs to reset before the new fiscal year starts in April. Nobody should feel safe. This all comes down to math and people do not matter in that equation. If you get severance, it... read more
Leave Follett. There a jobs out there. Don't waste your talent on a company that doesn't care about you. A bonus does not make up for all the hours that you have worked. Region 39 it's terrible. Kevin Boyce is an awful regional manager.
“It’s just the nature of the business,” Yarbrough said. “As things move to online, how many supercenters do you really need in the U.S.?” Outside of the United States, Walmart’s store closure plan primary affects its Latin American market. Of the 115... read more
Let's post the questions here!
Working or failing? When I tell custs about it, they chuckle.
When working at Follett was fun. They promoted people who deserved it and the higher ups knew your name.
Just exactly how do they decide to invite to the Grand Opening. Of course all the executives but then a selection of random people. Yeah. One Follett.
With out-of-stocks, wrong editions, limited staffing, and horrible prices.
Since I took over as FHEG President in 2013, we have been working together to create strong momentum for our business and address the legacy issues that have been getting in the way of hassle-free service. Today's issues are YOUR issues. Step up and... read more
Those of you that have left, where have you found jobs?
If you're over 50, stay on board and hang in there. If you are younger- seek a different field of work. Why--the college bookstore model is simply headed for extinction. Book sales are declining each year and future models are suggesting the... read more
I'm really worried. Bonuses are all that keeps me around. Has anyone heard anything?
Be expecting another round of layoffs in early January. This time the home office is targeted big time (and no, SS will not be gone). They need to save lots of payroll because of financial targets not being hit across the board. The field will have... read more
Between buyback, Rush, bowl games and the holidays. December was my least favorite month. The mad dash and stress put on you to have the store ready. I'm taking time off this year like normal people do. There's other jobs out there, people. Remember... read more
Was this the last supper with SS? Or everyone else's while he outsources our jobs? Inquiring minds want to know!
