So, stores record positive sales, the stock goes up, and what are employees rewarded with? More layoffs. Are you kidding with this? What does it take for BBB to get off our backs? What kind of sales improvement are they looking for to stop laying off people who are responsible for those improved sales???

Anyone could read back 20 topics deep on this page and see all the same words and statements over and over again. Even here it shows BBB will never change and never get out of their own way no matter who is in charge. The imprint being left on customers over the past 5 years alone is one of simply choosing to go shop somewhere better. This will not change either. With the pandemic people are being forced to shop at BBB with online orders and that is most likely a last resort. Everyone is saying the same thing, the writing is on the wall. BBB will always treat their employees like garbage no matter what is going on in the world. This goes for out in the field and corporate. The best thing for yourself if you work at BBB is to get out and move on.
Sales increased when we opened back up. But the last 3 weeks it's been on a downhill spiral.
We will see some increase because if the sales flyer.
And if you haven't heard, the store hours are being cut !
And where did you get YOUR MBA?/
The CDS thing was, for once, not a red flag. The last wave was temporary to take some of the pressure off the distribution centers.
We went from quite a few CDS to none....red flag?
@never ending cycle....absolutely true...the more you try to make their ridiculous ideas about staffing work the more they take away...like sailing a ship with holes in it. All you can do is bail out water and hope it floats...time I think to jump ship.
Use your vacation, personal and sick time now...you never know
We use to have CDS everyday, but since weve been opened, we only had them the 3 days last week.
The CDS orders haven't slowed down, BOPIS still doing well and we cut the staff to a third and expect the same results?? The store is emptied as fast as it comes in due to the large orders everyday. No time to close rooms and work freight. Everyone is stretched to the max and stressed out. Most of us out there taking interviews for new jobs. I'll be moving on soon. I will miss my co-workers but not the BBBY mentality.
It's that never-ending cycle, sales aren't good enough because there's no one on the floor to help customers, so we're cutting staff and hours so that there's no one on the floor to help customers. And when sales pick up they look at the profits and say how much more money could we be making if we cut the store associates by a third? They think they can cut themselves to growth, but all they do is hurt themselves. This is what happens when a company is run by people who got their MBAs off the back of a Kellogs Cornflakes box.
