"He said you dont get rewarded for doing the bare minimum/whats expected of you."
What I meant by this is that Follett doesnt get a pat on the back for a measly 3 percent raise. They did the bare minimum
@hsga+1cQYEXu8 You’re still at Follett, so happily employed no doubt, yet you’re still checking this board…..such a lonely soul you are SMH. I suspect your a pathetic family member coming here hoping that someone will say something decent about the lousy job you’re doing leading this company only to constantly read that almost everyone hates Follett and its family.

Across the board raises are a joke - 3% of nothing/cr-p pay = nothing.
Keep working your ars off and get 3% same as the lazy S-B sitting there doing nothing.
however their raise is probably more because they make more.
So glad I got out of Follett He-l..
Post ID: @6doe+1cQYEXu8 I wish I could high five you in person.
So this happened to me at Follett several years. I asked for a raise when I was asked to do the job of two people when one got fired.
Well I got a "raise", well I got a cash advance. I got my two percent up front in the winter, then I got the 1 percent in the summer when they used to do 360 reviews.
The annual raise is 3-5 percent
When I was a kid, I asked my dad why I didnt get money for As like other kids did in my class. He said you dont get rewarded for doing the bare minimum/whats expected of you.
It wasn't about the money when I worked there, the culture was horrible. Miserable is miserable and no amount of money in the world is going to change that.
The average salary increase is not 3-5%. Actually, 3% is the average for most employers.
“Don’t forget, SMs also took a pay cut last year due to COVID. We were never compensated for that.”
The entire company took pay cuts last year. Yes, the ENTIRE company, including the executives. Nobody got compensated for that. Everyone just got their normal salary reinstated after months of a decrease.
Wow looks like I struck a nerve. A little full of yourself if you think working at a McDonalds is somehow low skill level. The people who work at McDonalds are pretty good under stress, trained in multiple areas of their particular location and are experts at dealing with snotty customers who think they have a low skill level. I did work at a McDs while I went to college. It was the by far the hardest job I have ever done. These people are very good at what they do. If you think "flipping a burger" is somehow beneath you, I feel sorry for you. Maybe in your region people get raises, but in mine it is not allowed. It has nothing to do with your performance. I was unable to give an outstanding ASM a raise because "we don't give annual raises". If you love this company, good for you. If you think 3% is a wonderful raise, good for you. If you think this company is going in the right direction, good for you. You are in the minority. I do feel sorry for anyone who reads an opinion on a forum and their first instinct is to attack that persons intellect or job skills. I hope you find peace
Interesting, I’ve gotten a raise every year for the last 6 years that I’ve been employed here, so I’m not sure what you’re talking about when you say no raise. Oh wait, I do, you’re an under-performer. Go head, leave, go work for McDonald’s, I’m sure you’ll enjoy flipping burgers better suited for your skill level! lol pathetic
@ Post ID: @1ung+1cQYEXu8 SO LEAVE!!!!! NO one is forcing you to stay and certainly won’t miss you when you’re gone. You’re holding on to a sinking ship because you can’t swim, meaning you probably don’t have any skills or talent and your lack of abilities are being hidden by staying at Follett. So pathetic!
Don't forget, SMs also took a pay cut last year due to COVID. We were never compensated for that.
I always find it amusing when you have been taken advantage of for a period of time and then offered some insignificant crumb people tell you to be grateful. 3% are you kidding me!? For a company that does not give out annual performance increases this is laughable. The average annual pay raise is 3%-5%. So Follett is holding solid at the low end. Now take into consideration that a salaried manager has not gotten an annual pay increase in at least 4 years. That 3% over 4 years is pathetic. For a team member who makes 12.00 per hour that is a whopping .36 an hour. So no I will not be happy for the token 3%. It only fuels me to leave this sinking ship as soon as I can. Food for thought-McDonalds, Amazon, Starbucks, Walmart, Target all pay better and treats their team with more respect. They also have annual reviews that come with pay increases based on performance
@1sjs+1cQYEXu8 what’s to be grateful for? Years of no increases and then one that doesn’t keep pace with inflation?We’re all under water as a result and you think we should be grateful that they’re throwing us a tiny tiny bone in hopes that a few of us won’t quit to help them survive to the next family payoff. Don’t be so naive. The employees here have been incrementally subsidizing bad decisions by TL for too long. Some of us have no other options but the ones that do should get out. This ends with TL and family pocketing whatever cash is left and all of us out of work. I was here when his elders were here and they’d be so ashamed.
Going forward, vendors would be smart to require payment up front before delivery of any goods.
you ungrateful people are disgusting!
Yes. Wonder what the real future is for FHEG? I'm guessing bankruptcy followed by reorganization, paying off pennies on the dollar to debt holders. Dying business, no one would want to buy them. DF strategy of net never probably paid off in the end. Family pocketed profits while vendors were left out in the cold.
More money is always better than same story, same money. Take it and say thank you. Find a better job (follett is truly terrible).
Inflation at 5% yeah sure. Really great!
Some good news for a change!
