Why do we order to B&T for it to sit on back order for a month or longer?
Topics regarding layoffs at Follett
Was there ever a more incompetent rm than Scooter? I'll wait...
Rush is well underway, with more schools starting tomorrow. Tell us your stories of decreased sales, home office not helping you out, and used books that nobody’s renting.
Follett buys b&t B&t drags down FSS earnings for years Follett promotes b&t exec over FSS cash cow Why does the family accept this level of stupidity? Why do I still care?
Nebraska Book Company pawned off it's money-s—ing NEEBO division onto Follett a couple years ago, now.....Follett is going to help keep another company out of bankruptcy court. After this fall rush, B&N will release sales results which will drop... — read more
Where we don’t take care of ourselves in order to attempt to reach unrealistic goals in the name of nonexistent bonuses.
Hey, Follett- you’re going to lose me if you don’t get your systems problems fixed. Who am I ? I’ll tell you: I’m a well above average intelligence person working as one of your managers. I have a strong work ethic, the ability to relate to... — read more
Anyone having problems with digital codes not working? Or, is it just "a known issue?"
Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others. - Jack Welch, Winning
You’ve become a generic retail company, with all the standard abusive practices. Way to go!
Where did the new thread go? And a lot of the posts from the older thread are missing? No names were mentioned were they?
Wow. So many are miserable. I seriously hope someone of some importance and common sense is looking at this, and considering what is being said. Major changes need to be made
Repeated layoffs to make plan - CHECK Circling of the wagons - executive leadership being promoted - Check Inconsistency in company directives and direction - Check Lack of employee engagement - Check Employees being asked to do more with less -... — read more
Systems are incompetent, budgets are scant, support is not present, expectations are ridiculous. Honestly, we must all hate ourselves to work with this company.
Sure would be nice to be able to make it through a semester with the systems working the way they are supposed to. It’s bad enough that it already takes us an hour (because of inefficiency in our programs and processes) to do a 15min task. To add... — read more
Is there any truth to the rumor 3 people from HR quit?
Did anyone see the article? This is gonna help damage our reputation, but maybe we’ll get better developers as a result? Then again, maybe not. I had to have psc hack my core pos to get it to work, yesterday. It was shameful
Will it ever end?????
Anything new for the fall rush? I was able to get a ton of used books which was the first in a few terms.Any new ideas out there?
Why does anyone actually come to work in reg 53 anymore? It dont matter.
Is it me or does it appear the responses have mostly been eliminated?
FSS does not hesitate to create VP's by the handful. Rank and file year after year told we don't have the budget.
Please. I’m going to start losing employees.
So I hear ADC is no more? Where are you getting the majority of your new and used books now? Is Nebraska doing much?
Is it literally that digital books are no longer being utilized in this program? I don’t see a difference between the two.
So it has been posted for general review. What struck me the most was the response about the steps being taken for PTO revision. Hiring an outside consultant and forming a ‘tiger team’ is extremely wasteful. Why gripe on a site about layoffs? Because... — read more
Are they coming or not?
Write what you like. This site is not affiliated with follett in any way. How can you be sure? Has it gone down? No. Is there a reason follett would host as site where Apple, Amazon, Google, Sears, Consolidated Freightways layoffs are monitored? No... — read more
I posted something on here. A few minutes later saw weather was getting weird and checked my phone. I was getting the weather report for Westchester. I dont live anywhere near there. How did that happen unless they were monitoring my phone?
Really? You have to ask the question. How come the vacant SM jobs always seem to go to outside hires? Surely the region has talented people who can and are able to step up the role? — read more

Just wondering how we are stacking up against our competitors with our sales team. Hear B.S. in Chicago is leaving? Heard health is concerned for one VP. Other VP covering northeast from Wisconsin really makes sense. And mid Atlantic region being... — read more
Any layoffs planned (aside from Aurora) @ DCs?
DC fired, eased out, or resigned voluntarily? PC singing his praises today.
I have noticed a steady stream of store manager openings since Fall 2018. An average of 50 per week. I was wondering if this is from a culling or feed up managers quitting. What ever one it is, it’s a good sign that things aren’t promising. We... — read more
Management and above and i cant get anyone to look at me. Is there a trick to your resumes? Want to get out. Please help.
Anyone feeling the pressure on collecting minimal amounts of money that is simply not worth having a heart attack over? Pressure, pressure.
So it's that time of year again & what a difference a year makes. This time last year everyone was off to Florida and now it's back to Illinois. Any predictions for the conference? — read more
