New RM position for 41

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.

Safety

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.

Beyond store level cuts?

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.

Did we make the cut??

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.

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

We MUST find ways to reduce the cost

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.
