OK, then. If there's anybody left here who isn't a corporate LP bull trying to make everybody feel better, or doesn't have a DM in New England who's a b----, here's the straight dope:
Day to day changes in the stock price mean nothing. Whether or not some stores are doing better year over year mean nothing. The only important thing is if BN has enough credit to keep their doors open, and, more importantly, if working there is anything more than a Sisyphean act of personal torture.
Bookselling used to be a calling; in some places, perhaps it still is, but those days at BN are long past, Now, it's all hands at lifeboat stations, and the devil take the hindmost.
Get out as soon as you can.
Has anyone's manager left for a new job yet? Or are they riding it out, hoping for a package?
“No one here ever reports the sales from their store. Why is that? Because they're all doing badly.“
Need someone in management to answer this.if other stores are like the one I’m on, they’re not sharing the sales numbers anymore. All we here is “we’re down for the week”.
Someone asked how much and the SM ( who acts dumber everyday) says “ I don’t have an exact figure”.
Gee, they sure did awhile back. Now they don’t? More lies !
I really hate our DM in New England, she is such an evil b----. Our managers tell us everything she says after she leaves.

Why buy at Barnes anymore? It's cheaper on line, and there is hardly any staff anymore at the stores. Do you really want to stand in line when you see 15 registers and only 1 or 2 cashiers? Or wait at the customer service desk for 15 minutes waiting for someone to help you? Much easier to do it on line.
“I think the investors would be more concerned if they knew just how badly we're doing for sales.”
If the “ investors “ are that ignorant as to the lack of sales hey deserve what they get....
I think the investors would be more concerned if they knew just how badly we're doing for sales. Our store is tanking.
