I am a bbb alumni. Gave them 9 years in the hay day watching them grow from 300 store to close to 1000. Last position was asm in a A volume store. Use to be 100% debt free company then Christmas tree & later harmons when I was still there. I told my dm back in 2000 that the stores were way over managed. I Worked in a B+ volume store then. It had sm, asm, ops mgr, soft side asst & hardside asst, 6 dept mgrs-bed, bath, lifestyle, hard, rec mgr and front end mgr. He said they would NEVER cut those position, that he had been with them since "lenny& sqiggy" had started BBB. Hmm who was right! Brick and mortor is a dying breed of retail. There is very few left at BBB who can teach those the BBB standards. The never say NO to a customer. They cut over a 1000 managers back in 2009/10 none got severance as those in 2017. A very quiet secret that no one even noticed. They did it thru bogus write ups so they wouldn't have to pay unemployment and not pay the $40-90M a year salaries they use to pay Asm/dept mgrs. I knew a asst who made $108M!!! My last BBB looks like c-ap no one knows standards no one acknowledges customers & the payroll has maybe 4 people on the floor in a once A volume store. Yes I'm still in retail as a CVS store manager; my CVS does more a year then that A volume BBB back then, said but true. I wish you all the luck. I loved my early years at BB and still shop there but glad I'm gone.
