Thread regarding Barnes & Noble layoffs

The HUGE CAFE MANAGERS LAWSUIT B&N can't afford

Did you work unpaid overtime hours as a Barnes and Noble Café Manager?

If so, you may be owed overtime wages. Shavitz Law Group along with co-counsel Hepworth Gershbaum and/or

Spending most of your time performing the same job duties as Café Servers and Baristas, such as making coffee, customer service, arranging products and displays, preparing food, and cleaning the café.

You may be eligible to claim unpaid overtime wages, plus an additional equal amount of damages, (i.e., double damages) under the federal law known as the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”). Even if you were paid a salary, Barnes and Noble might owe you unpaid overtime wages if your primary duties were non-exempt tasks such as cleaning, making coffee, and similar such work.

“I agree.must be the same one in TN (near Nashville 😉) I was at. A manager in the cafe just oversees it. We do all the work and the “Manager” takes all the credit.”

“My last Cafe Mgr , in TN was just a glorified barista. She’d tell everybody what to do. Then just end up doing what we were doing. A pointless position that an ASM could manage. But get rid of positions needed to make the store run efficiently. That’s why I left. C-appy management”

Our cafe is one of the insanely busy ones.

Add to that the endless baking with the never ending, Buy one/get one, cookie

deal, which is basically free food for the regulars that buy cookies, regardless.

Add to that food orders, milk orders, low staff/huge lines & cafe inventory once a month.

And don't forget the Godiva displays & planograms!

I worked there when the Café mgrs were salaried and ours DEFINITELY worked at least 60-70 hours a week if not more.

Are café managers still salaried? I thought they went hourly some time ago. This was probably due to the fact that most café managers at BN do very little time in actual management, and that the company was following California state law, which most national companies do.

In my experience, this was only fair, since CMs might take a hour a week or so to help (or actually write) the café schedule, perhaps an hour a week to order product, maybe a hour or two a week to help interview the constant revolving door of café servers, etc. All together, they might put in perhaps five or six hours a week in real management duties, and the rest of the time they'd be making drinks and telling the more dense guests that their Starbucks gift cards are not accepted, and why.
