New president was hired two weeks ago, and yesterday due to ‘company restructuring’ I was laid off, effective immediately. I worked for West Elm for 1 yr 5m and really enjoyed working with my clients and coworkers. Devastated.

So many people work at that company for YEARS and complain about the working conditions of the company, yet nothing gets done. People's lunch breaks are often intervened, there are barely any positive incentives for employees, leaders do not respect those under them, and not to mention the place (D-MBO location) is run down. A pathetic company, with a lack of diversity. There are about 100 white employees that look the same for every 1 BIPOC.
The most you see BIPOC workers, are the cleaning services, which they barely do a good and apparently don't even get paid well to do it. West Elm LIES about its mission statements.
I am so sorry that you were laid off. Do you mind if I ask the position you held? I work for the company, as well.
I worked in Southaven for a couple of years...left about 4 months ago...a guy I'm still in touch with there told me a lot of people were let go due to "downsizing."
