How many are getting behind in shipping out MO? Does anybody have a suggestion on how to get caught up when you’re so understaffed??
Topics regarding layoffs at Follett
Wondering if they'll go external again or try to promote from within this time? The region has been more or less rudderless for the past year and a half with the RM that was.
Where's Scooter? No longer listed on the Quad?
Follett’s evil plan to get rid of me?!? Pharmacy just called insulin is no longer covered???
I really wish people would stop with the "if you don't like it leave" attitude. Some of us Love our job, our staff, our schools, we just don't like what Follett has done to us, how they have treated us, the lack of respect and appreciation. I am an... — read more
95+. That’s how many. This company has 95 VPs in their title and not one business unit is winning. Think about it! Let’s say, just for laughs, that each makes a min 150k salary. Which we all know they probably make more than that, that is $14.2... — read more
On Wednesday there is a Follett holiday lunch at a local hotel for all the corporate folks. Based on how they have been squeezing expenses, laying off administrative assistants, ASM's, and others, it's hard to imagine that they are spring for a free... — read more

It seems that despite the "favorable" reviews on Indeed certain stores are still having difficulty attracting managers. The new store that just changed regions, for instance? What happened there? Due to open next month officially and still... — read more
So many store level managers have jumped ship due to lack of support staff being taken away, continued increase in expectations with no possibility of reward, fear of being layed off, lack of pay increase and bonus and benefit cuts, oh I could go on... — read more
In a fear-based workplace, everyone is focused on their daily goals. They have to be because if they miss a goal, they could lose their job. You won’t get collaboration or innovation out of people who are scared to death! In a fear-based... — read more
They don’t watch their employees like hawks. They don’t enact rules and policies to cover every situation, because they know their employees will rise to every challenge. They don’t set up control mechanisms to keep people from using their native... — read more
Do we still really have 8000 in Our workforce? I’m sorry it sure doesn’t feel like it. We’re down to a staff of two!
I can’t tell you how comforting it’s is to know that we now have a bio hazard kit when I am working in the store by myself. It really makes me feel much safer.
Will they ever? Are we stuck with having no job security for good? I'm just geting tired of constantly being stressed out.
What has happened to a couple of threads that were posted here?
This is the kinda of shill review follett posts. The timing is no accident. They need to backfill with cheaper, inexperienced meat. Tell your real story. Glassdoor.com
Just wondering, is there ever a regional or above cut? I can understand layoffs at store level if they arent profitable, but seems like getting rid of 1 r.m., gap, or higher would save a lot more money than a low paid store position.
So if we haven't heard from our manager yet does that mean we are safe from the layoff? Anyone know what type of positions were cut? This is so heartless, right before the holidays.
I don't know how severance packages work and this is the first ime I have been laid off from a job. If I except a severace package am I still able to apply for unemployment? Nobody seems to be able to answer this question, or they don't want to.
The whole "restructuring" malarkey? Stores are, once again, going to be carrying the can for the dead-weights at the top of the ladder? Just how many do they fire or lay off before the entire house of cards comes crashing down & their precious... — read more

Repeat of November 2013?
It's easy to spot fake reviews on glassdoor. follett is filling the site with garbage again. Why should you care? People considering working at follett look to this site. When the first 5 reviews they see say, if you're a student this is a great job... — read more

Bit disconcerting when reviewing the numbers. Stores at FHEG apparently great at cash flow, but once again ‘expense management’ and Gross Margin. EM is the part that bodes poorly for field staff. The digital transformation. Sounds like something they... — read more

Captain Obvious, here. Some campuses don’t want Access. How about finding a way to compete with Amazon that isn’t price matching without an actual price difference for the book. Nobody wants gift cards.
