Heading off to my new job after Follett. Have been recognized several times as a hard working associate, given increasing responsibility. My new bosses are impressed by my work ethic, and can't believe I was let go from another job. I'm relaxed... read more

These bricks are way too high you need to cut it.
There is absolutely no good communication filtering through upper management and either organization. Until this happens, it happens the way it is supposed to meaning that they drop the bullshit and they provide each other with honest and productive... read more
So many places that would appreciate you...and yet you stay. Do you think you will rise from the ashes? Do you think there's something worth saving? Do they value you more because they've fired everyone who knew how to walk? You are better than this... read more
You know it is bad when you envy someone who is going to be out for 8 weeks due to major surgery.
Was offered and accepted a promotion only to be told "it will be re-evaluated after rush. Do you think I'm stupid? After rush so much changes and I am sure they will say "not at this time, we will re-evaluate again". Yep, get through rush then kick... read more
When is Follett going to move on from just settling for crumbs or now days chicken feed... and WHY,WHY , WHY IS FOLLETT ALWAYS PLAYING THE CATCH-UP GAME WITH EVERYONE ELSES' TECHNOLOGY, INNOVATIONS AND PRODUCTS??? RIGHT???? Why didn't Follett come up... read more
Is anyone keeping track of the number of epic failures by Follett in the past 5 years? Are we in the hundreds, or thousands or (heaven forbid) in the millions?
Do RM's and GVP's lend a hand at rush anymore?
Current situation...wishing it wasn't true, but seriously- can it get much worse? Why does the FSS president report to a company they bought?? Tragic AF
Fall rush sales are up at our location, but we have not received any clothing or supplies. Sorry Follett, we can't sell what we don't have. Your replenishment experts are not doing their job. If we don't receive shipment this week forget it they wont... read more
The day Follett gets that they were wrong in every step they have taken since 2012 is the day that the 7 dollar bill becomes a reality, pigs can fly, the sun will rise from the west and set in the east, and pigs can fly, and there will be no more... read more
Declining birth rates equals declining enrollments across the educational spectrum. Yet, the budgeting geniuses don't account for that....because, if you sell one more pen, one more candy bar, that will save the day. The lack of entrenched... read more

Sanjeev keeps offshoring and building his kingdom. Projects are disasters. He keeps getting rich while employees get canned. Follett family has sold out values for greed in IT and refuse to see the reality - how much money they have flushed in the... read more
This post will get the troll stamp because HO doesn't like to lose the element of surprise. But honestly who's surprised anymore? We're all numb to this and the hype from RG and team sounds like hyperbole to the initiated and well-informed. Best... read more
Back in March I thought Nader said change brings opportunity and look at all the people being promoted. We have been watching... vp's and directors and cronies get promoted. The troops? None. New leaders. Same bullsh*t.
Ask yourself, are you working at managing the needs of the changing markets, or are you working to defend doing more of what worked in the past? I truly believe it is a little of both. I admit, the old way was good and wish it was the same. However... read more
It won't matter because other stores are in a rut. They'll still cut your staff in Sept. Just wait and see
What happened to controlling costs. No raises for anyone, yet there are two home office promotions. I am tired of sacrificing when it is not a shared sacrifice.
They let GT go, they dumped DG. Why is SS still employed? If you are going to clean house, why not complete it?
I fibbed on my resume. Getting 73k and don't have a clue what I'm doing here. Should I even care at this point.
I read this board every day because it's a habit and because it's quite entertaining. Every single day people complain about leadership, not liking the company, who should leave, layoffs etc. Now yes, I will agree that we have entirely two many VP'S... read more

You can tell what a company really think about their employees when times are bad. So I guess we are seeing the true Follett. Lucky for them they have "great leaders" in place to help guide them.
