I’m starting to understand why so many posting here, were axed. Horrible attitudes, negative outlooks, and the constant need to be coddled by your employer. Those that remained, should be proud. Good employees propel the business forward, even... — read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Barnes & Noble
They are restructuring their management. Manager positions are being eliminated, Sales & Merchandise managers will be eliminated, restructuring and giving responsibilities to lower positions and renaming them. District managers will be gone.
I am wondering if anyone has returned to work. Looks like my store has not brought back any booksellers. Are there plans to do so? Any thoughts on timing? We are still locked out of Dayforce. Gathering corporate is not allowing for stores to add... — read more
I have a feeling my store might be. I heard from a manager at Burlington that their corp was told a store in our plaza wont be renewing their lease this year so Burlington would be moving to it. We are the only store large enough for Burlington.
As a BN associate I'd be interested to hear how this went in your stores. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/07/09/books/barnes-noble-redecorating-virus.html
Looks like a lot of still 'furloughed' longtime employees who are not back at the opened stores are receiving letters about health insurance going away this month nd they should take COBRA at over $700 a month. No word by company or store manager if... — read more
The Restaurant/Book concept is done. https://dallas.culturemap.com/news/entertainment/06-26-20-barnes-noble-kitchen-legacy-west-plano/
BN just ejected myself and others (at once) for not wearing a mask. I normally do not wear one unless at work. They would not even provide me with a mask. They have them for their employees. I guess they really do not care about staying in business... — read more
Anyone have any experience with this so called “clique” at The Barnes and Noble Union Square location?
Half of us are back and we are forced to do several jobs each to make sure the store is running. Somebody else mentioned this in one of the threads and I couldn't agree more - this is intentional. They want to see if they can milk us like this... — read more
Not surprised. The store is a big behemoth, and had been poorly run for years. ... — read more
As always, the former disgruntles predicted NOTHING. Stores are reopening, furloughed employees are coming back. No decrease in wages. Vacation & benefits are still provided. Curbside did well. Stores look great with the relay. Maybe next... — read more
Has anyone noticed dayforce is not working?
Were any Barnes & Noble bookstores looted in the rioting?
Many States have reopened and no BN stores have. Books A Million stores are open. Used book stores are open. Before I get accused of being an ex employee with a grudge- I’m not. I called the store and spoke to someone last week . Was told no plans... — read more
Will people start at day one once they are invited back??? Are you fckn kidding me???
How many of us will be allowed back, as the economy reopens? Anyone know the basic strategy, as the company has the option to terminate. Not saying they will, but what would make the most financial sense?
Look I know times are rough right now and all of us are sitting home watching baseball reruns and panicking about the future of our jobs and this company and bookselling/publishing/writing as careers. But there is hope for all of us even if we have... — read more
I'm usually an optimistic person but with everything that's been going on lately, I've really lost my ability to find a silver lining in everything. There really is none right now. This company is failing. Chances us, the majority of us will be out... — read more
This is not on Amazon. Why is what is happening now any different from when Barnes & Noble didn't think twice before putting who knows how many independent bookstores out of business? Let me tell you - it isn't any different. This is simply the best... — read more
Honestly, do you want to see a complete Amazon monopoly in the book market? They have too much influence over prices as it is, what do you think will happen if we are a thing of the past as well? I understand you might be unhappy working here but... — read more
I'm not trying to be pessimistic or all doom and gloom, but let's be realistic. We were not doing well as it is for years and we needed a miracle to turn us around. Instead of a miracle, we got a global pandemic. When you desperately need a miracle... — read more
Stores are doing relays right now to make the store look better for when they open. Managers, any full-timers and a small crew of senior part-timers are doing the job plus BOPIS with curbside pick-up. Yes the sales are minimal but at least the core... — read more
This guy is talking about how BN's money problems are making them slow down payments to publishers. He's talking about ebook publishers, but maybe the same thing is going on with other suppliers... — read more
Where are the updates of store closings and massive layoffs? I am frothing at the mouth for BN to shutter for good. I am really excited for it to happen, and soon.
How many people are still on the payroll, excluding the c-suite?
Im in quarantine and was informed a bit go that i was being laid off, but i was going to buy some books and games and etc on the site and my discount still applies.. is this okay?
Has anyone received their two weeks pay? Was it mailed or direct deposit. I thought I would have received it today but didn’t.
"Due to the impact of the pandemic on its business, Barnes & Noble Education (NYSE:BNED) says it told employees today that it will be instituting a furlough program impacting the majority of the BNC workforce and a select number of employees from the... — read more
I'm pretty sure mine is closed for good. We weren't that profitable as it is, so if they throw away the key after locking the door I won't be too surprised.
Per "The Digital Reader", as of 3/27, Barnes and Noble has closed 400 stores due to the health concerns with Coronavirus. Some are still doing curbside service, but closed to the public. The store I worked at is still open, but the staff has been cut... — read more
Can Barnes & Noble really use this as an opportunity to get rid of so many long-term employees with no severance and no chance of returning (we all know that reapplying is a joke?) Is there anything that can be done after all of this is over to... — read more
Most everyone fired ( can say “laid off” all they want) this cafe MANAGER , told she’ll hear from them if want to REHIRE her ! I was laid off on Saturday by an unknown area manager from New York headquarters. Not even the courtesy of a call from... — read more
I work in CORP. Believe me it’s been discussed. A lot of stores ( the non productive ones) will not reopen. Plan your future now.
Daunt closed all the Waterstones last week and today, he closed his own Daunt Books. Several locations across the country have temporarily closed for Barnes and Noble, but when are they all going to close to protect the staff and encourage the... — read more
