Hours cut again

Our hours were cut again so now we have 3 people scheduled on the floor during the day. The sm hs/ss and cashier/ sup/cs. This is crazy.

We have lost more employees due to hrs being cut. One employee just left because they only had 8 hrs for the whole week. How is this possible to run a business like this without warning. I know every year at this time there are cutbacks but there is no disclosure to anyone being hired that there is a possibility of this happening. Not even a notification to each employee that hrs could or will be cut and a happy notification that hrs could be back to normal. It’s a total shock to look at your schedule and see how many days off you have. How can an employee be faithful and dedicated to BBB

Seriously. Did they forget about the thousands of people who work in their stores who are/were exposed to everything while they were all at home. Correction “working from home “.
That’s right let’s protect the people who never have interaction with the customers the last 2 years and make major decisions and changes without being out in the field. Please listen to your staff out in the field to hear what the customers want. Yes there are still lots of people who love BBB but no one can hear what they want or need from their basements or home offices.
We can survive if you listen to your people.

Get paid $36 mil to be a failure?? I think they should lock him up then send him back to the land of down under.

The payout if (when) MT is sent packing is up to $36 million.
It’s really no wonder they have no clue what’s going on in stores. They’re operating in another reality.

hey, 12.9 mil is fair! i mean, the poor guy had to get out of bed, and walk down the hall and turn his computer on every day! oh, and don't forget the super informative and insightful videos he had to record on some video app from 2004 every week!

it's just that time of the year, we're grossly understaffed but can't even hire for the next month to stay under budget. over the last month our store has had multiple days with me in back, a cashier, and the keyholder as sales floor coverage for part of the day....this past saturday, after 7pm it was just the ops keyholder and the hardside key for the last couple hours in the entire store

Store really shouldn’t be open with only two people. It’s just to a safe situation for the employees and the customers.
That SM would be wise to put concern in writing and email the DM.

We all do all now, for a while. Stay or find your way out. Up to you. I miss many who have gone, I cringe at the thought of others who have gone. My advice, I am no one to you all, ...be you, do you, etc. Wherever you go, remember who you are and love your SELF and FAMILY. not your work. WORK for YOUR life not for a company's idea of YOUR LIFE!

How do they expect to run a business this way. Not only is it impossible to help customers or get the normal things done that running a store of ANY type or business model require but at least in my area it’s very dangerous. The thieves have figured out when we have the least amount of employees present and that’s when they strike. Come on. Either give the resources to do it right or end it. But at this point even safety is jeopardized.

I wish we had 3 people. There are times when we only have the sm and a cashier.
