Where we don’t take care of ourselves in order to attempt to reach unrealistic goals in the name of nonexistent bonuses.

Congrats, Follett

You’ve become a generic retail company, with all the standard abusive practices. Way to go!

100% stressful

Systems are incompetent, budgets are scant, support is not present, expectations are ridiculous. Honestly, we must all hate ourselves to work with this company.

Would be nice.

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

June’s townhall meeting

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

This site is not anonymous

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?

R41? What is the deal?

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

Culling? Mass exodus? Or both?

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
