We are being gifted an extra $1 an hour for the first 2 weeks of rush. We gave you 20 temps so you shouldn't have any OT. Temps are not key holders nor can they solve "manager-related" problems but you will be fine. /S

I honestly wonder if the plan is just to further pi-s off all the salaried SMs so that they leave, and then Follett can hire new ones at a lower pay. I wouldn't put it past them. They've always found ways to push out higher payed SMs, so this wouldn't be a new tactic.
Dear Employees, Welcome back from summer break. Since I know how extra hard you are going to work for the next weeks ringing tbe register, helping people find books,and chatting with your friends (pretending they are customers), we are going to pay you extra!
All you salaried people-the ones that work all year long, the ones that ordered those books, opened those boxes and shelved those books, the ones that are here before we open and stay long after we close ,ya, they get nothing extra. They are not worthy of acknowledgement of their dedication and hard work. And you wonder why everyone hates this company.
Never followed the labor hours dictated from HO. I knew what my store needed when, no one from HO had any idea what was needed when since they never bothered to come out during rush or buyback or graduation.
That last comment though. On point.
And the salaried people that worked thru Covid, by themselves, took payouts, and work the most get nothing.
Well, it's little solace but I don't know anyone who follows the no overtime rule during rush. It's generally ignored. Might as well take advantage of the busiest period.
We will also furnish you with a flawed hiring website that is painful to use, “reps” from said firm who will blow you off, and expect you to operate through rush with the help of perhaps one other manager who knows his or her a-s from the elbow. The temps can do only the most menial tasks and you will still be punished with the tough work. We will dangle this extra dollar in your face as a thinly veiled sign of our contempt—and we may even let our internet cr-p out once or twice!
