Topics regarding layoffs at Follett


What are the layoffs among HR and Asset Protection? Can’t get a response or support, they working from home or are they all gone?

I am of an age that is higher risk, I am nervous about the store reopening. We have mask, and cleaning supplies, but we have been working with no students on campus. I am very nervous, and so are other co workers, to reopen. So many stores are doing... —  read more 

So many layoffs at Follett

So many layoffs at Follett, but never the senior positions like presidents, vice presidents etc. They set the strategy for Follett to succeed, and when Follett fails THEY lay off the little guys who execute the strategy. This is not an execution... —  read more 

LATE payment to vendors

After spending 50 million dollars, eFollett is up 10% while stores are down 70%. When will Follett leadership learn that stores are the primary and eFollett will always be a secondary channel. Stores lots of layoffs, eFollett no layoffs. ... —  read more
