I'm honestly curious, when's the last time we've had layoffs? We either didn't have any for a while or I somehow managed to miss them when they were happening. Honestly, one of the few things I like about working here is relative job security. Since... — read more
If the economy turns around, do you anticipate any Chico's Fas Layoffs 2021? Any news or rumors?
The full number hasn’t been officially released, but roughly 25% of HQ positions were eliminated due to COVID-19. Mine was one eliminated, and I worked in HR. COO exited, as did Intimates brand president, multiple VP-level roles, and SVP supply... — read more
First store closings, now furloughs... What do you think is the next thing Chico's FAS will throw our way? Are permanent layoffs a possibility? I'm really stressing over all of this. I'm the only one who works in our family and this is really hurting... — read more
I am interested in the overall number of employees. Also, please share if you know how many people work at Fort Myers?
How likely is that there will be Chico's Fas Layoffs 2020? Any news or rumors?
It is a sad day. Sorry all.
"Executives say they want the retailer to have more of a digital presence, less of an old-fashioned physical one. The closings will include not only Chico's locations but also some of the company's White House Black Market and Soma... — read more
I'm sure everybody saw or heard by now about the 250 closing stores as part of "re-balancing" or whatever it is with online presence. However, I've been reading up on it and it seems that most of the closings will not take place before next year and... — read more
Have you heard anything about potential Chico's Fas Layoffs in 2019?
Things are not improving and we might see job cuts in Fort Myers.
I've seen this asked around, but never found a real answer. I was wondering if anybody knew what criteria they use at Chico's to determine who will be laid off? From what I have seen so far, merit is definitely not among it. I have seen some of our... — read more
I was effected and heard that many more were being let go across brands. In the same conversation I was told I was not only welcome but encouraged to re apply as I add great value to the store. Seriously? Not sure how this saves the company money... — read more
Many ASM's laid off yesterday across the 3 brands
It's no wondering they are closing the clothing store Chico's! You can't afford the prices of an item! I'm lucky sometime to find a piece of Chico's at a Goodwill Store!
It's all OK when it comes to executive bonuses, but at the same time there are many rumors about layoffs in Fort Myers.
Stay Away! The leaders are not leaders and are the same group of people that have been in the same retail industry for years. Can't attract inspiring people at the top from different industries to bring in different ideas. No new thinking and will be... — read more
OK, we expected something bad will happen this week, but I still can't believe how sneaky and inhuman this tour of layoffs is. What a horrible week. And the fact they are still hiding the number of people they tossed, I just have no words. Does... — read more
Big lay off today in Winder Ga. They let some of the best people go and kept some that should have gone. The company is going down hill fast.... Not sure how long it will last when you let your best people go. Loyalty and loving your Job doesn't go... — read more
There are more layoffs coming ...the new CEO calls it a restructuring for cost efficiencies, but the reality is that there will be more layoffs at the corporate office
Hello All - Does not someone have a full or partial list of Chico's FAS stores that will be closing in 2016 - I know that we probably do not have all information but this is something that may be interesting for many people - at least in that case... — read more
What is the likelihood of Chico's Fas layoffs in Fort Myers in 2016? Please let me know if you have any information.
Worries of additional layoffs are on the minds everyone. Panic is setting in as it was announced last week that there is a strong likelihood that the company will be bought by Sycamore Partners in the very near future.
Very sad for these people, there are no good paying jobs like these around here to replace those lost. The unemployment benefits in Florida are ridiculously low. I guess they can go work at the local WAWA's springing up all over, or some other type... — read more
What is typical severance payment that people in corporate office get?
Do you maybe have a list of stores that we are planning to close. I heard that over 10% of Chico's stores may be closed, since we have 1,500 stores that would equate to 150 closures.
Headquarters have been hit, 200 folks were let go. VPs, directors, managers, grunts, you name it - they have all been affected.
Layoffs have started yesterday, it was a horrible day here at the office in Fort Myers, there is a ton of anxiety at all levels and in all departments. Rumors are freely floating around and people are guessing how wide the cuts will be and if this... — read more
Do we have more info regarding how things are developing at Fort Myers
Sycamore Partners decided to withdraw their bid and to take us private. This creates a ton of problems, the cash we expected will not show up. So, we better get ready for MASSIVE layoffs.
Corporate office RIFs? Is that for real? That's what I hard from my peers.
Diss - I check this site from time to time and there are no posters. I know that we are going through layoffs right now and I am really surprised that the board is silent. There are other specialty retailers on this site (Chico's is not alone) and... — read more
Hello. Anyone here?
