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

Marketing VPs

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

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

Collect that AR, kids

Anyone feeling the pressure on collecting minimal amounts of money that is simply not worth having a heart attack over? Pressure, pressure.

Management is busy posting on Glassdoor again

I haven't checked employee reviews in a while. I was disappointed to read so many thin, fake reviews. follett's management team must be pushing student employment. Many, many posts about how working for follett is a great student job. If you haven't... —  read more

2% Across the Board

Where's the incentive? We need to stop calling this "merit" as job performance is irrelevant. We can't even call it a "cost-of-living adjustment." The Social Security Administration announced the COLA increase for 2019 is 2.8%. Meanwhile, the average... —  read more

Looking messy

Remember when we moved into Westbrook? Nothing could be taped to the glass, nothing could be piled up on cabinets or tables. Look around and some floors look like storage areas. Stopped by finances on 9. OMG!! —  read more

Move all text to online

If they moved the text business to online, cut out all the expense of housing text in stores, the company might have a chance of competing as an online business. GM has consistently shown growth but there is so little focus there.

Follett ‘Access’

The ‘salvation’ and ‘bright future’ according to regionals, Access is a neutered IncludED that takes the adaptability away. The bit about saving up to 30% doesn’t inspire confidence. In all honesty this looks like it was put together by bean counters... —  read more

It is hard to change the culture of an organization

It is hard to change the culture of an organization. With so many folks from failed (or failing retailers), they bring the "keep your head down to survive" mentality to Follett. Unfortunately, that doesn't help front line management. I am sure JH is... —  read more

Senior Management!

It is hard to do a job when you constantly feel that you have a target on your back. And before someone says, then why are you still here? There is more to a job then culture. Yes, it’s important, however, other aspects can out way culture. It’s... —  read more

SMs and RMs should punch a clock

The long-time employees know you work until the job is done. 6 or 7 days a week, 12+ hours a day if necessary during busy times. New external SMS think if they have to work a special event or a Saturday, take a day off during the week. That's not how... —  read more

Company culture going way downhill

I believe this company is going under. Where to start? The culture has gone from decent and fairly trustworthy of the lower management to paranoid about everything. It’s like working for a dystopian novel. In reality, the higher ups are out of touch... —  read more

Is it too much to ask for a thank you?

For a long term employee that has not had more than a 2% increase in many years you would think this company (r.m.) would at least take the time to tell me your doing a great job, you work really hard, you are loyal and reliable, and a trusted member... —  read more

Reviews?

What is the purpose of getting one? Our manager can tell us, hey, great job, or you need to do better at this, this, and this. We aren't going to reward you with a bonus worth your success, or a raise for job well done, we are just going to tell you... —  read more

Changes for the worse

I have seen the extraordinary changes over the past several years and it has been quite disheartening. The big layoff resulted in the loss of some good employees. There was an additional loss of talent by many of the folks who had to deliver the blow... —  read more
