Thread regarding Academy Sports & Outdoors layoffs

Rumored layoff

Latest rumored corporate employee layoff will be in January after they ask all the corporate employees to work in stores over Black Friday and Christmas. "Helping Hands" is not mandatory but strongly encouraged to all team members. That is seriously a bunch of c-ap. Here's hoping that you can actually get a severance package if you are one of the lucky ones to get let go vs just fired.

One GMM already resigned in recent weeks, everyone said she was coached to quit....who's next?

ASO keeps saying they want to build their digital dept and are hiring. Is this all BS strategy for a sinking ship with a faint future?

Ok everyone. You have about 2 1/2 months until layoffs. Timing is the same as last year. Departments will be consolidated. Divisions eliminated entirely. Middle management positions will be eliminated. Some lower level jobs on the list too.

Look at end of January for all of this. It’s bad press to do it too soon after the holidays. Allot of positions will move to 3rd party.

Want to know if your on the list? Super easy to know. Those who know you are on the list will look at you different. You will get less emails. Krista has THE WORST POKER FACE on the planet. Shifty eyes and even pity can be seen. While I cannot and will not disclose names of people or positions, you really only need to pay attention to those around you and for sure those above you. Get ready for round 1,314 of layoffs. Just start looking now. I have been warning you guys with what I can say without giving myself away. The entire 1st floor in building one needs to be on alert!!!! The list is final nothing you do can get your name off the list. Those of you who have a signed contract with us, most of you have a severance clause. You will be the only ones to get severance when you are seperated. The rest of you are getting like two weeks pay.

Good luck to you all and I wish you all the luck in the world. May you land your dream job next.

He-man is a laughable user name for anyone at ASO. Not one of them have the kahunas to do or say anything to anyone they talk c-ap about.

How gracious of them to wait until after the holidays. Pretty sure KKR purposely puts inconpetent leaders in place to run companies into the ground.
