Any thoughts on the new commission? I’m seeing a lot of new buckets. Is this good or bad? Should I sign this?
Topics regarding layoffs at W.B. Mason

Direct from the Better Business Bureau , and theres lots of these!! Who but!!! (1 star) 04/07/2021 This feedback is provided with regard to WB Mason's sales team in **, ** as well as their associated management. Specifically... — read more
This place is an HR nightmare. From managers screwing sales reps to age discrimination to se-ual discrimination. All that stuff gets swept under the rug when you’re small but as you get larger people pay attention.
Billion dollar companies are not run like this.
After over 10 years I decided to move on. I didn’t think I could do it but it goes to show that if you are determined enough you can make it happen. I don’t have anything bad to say about WB. We all know what it’s like. I’m just glad I’ll be out of... — read more
The company was built of the sales reps backs. Their soldiers.... Well your soldiers are coming for your heads now.
I will leave at that.
They know a lot. They've done their due diligence and are not bringing up JUST ONE POINT against illegalities WB has committed but about 20. Maybe some dont get validated.... but if 1/2 due they're about to come out of pocket big $.
Some good people and great colleagues who brought great value to this company have long since left here. I believe them when they say it’s better outside. I'm fine here as far as the job itself is concerned. I love my job and the least problem for... — read more
What they should be suing for is the FACT they WB MASON takes 10x what the sales rep makes in commission IF the customer doesn't pay..... AND THEY KEEP it even after they pay. That CANNOT BE legal. OR the fact they "encourage" or strongarm... should... — read more
At this point just file a suit in all 50 states.
If checks are from lost commissions from the past , do we lose our unemployment ? Has Mason advised?
Anyone hearing about a new class action lawsuit filled in New York?
I don't know if it's just my feeling or do you think that the situation is getting worse in this company every day as well? Every time I think the next day will be better, they prove me wrong. It's getting depressing. That's why I struggle terribly... — read more
Nobody cares. Move on. I’ve never seen so much hate from past employees. Let it go. Lawsuits, lawsuits and more! - Again, no one cares. Move on. Love checking this page to read all the b–thurt old employees. I get my popcorn ready and... — read more
Hey, Anyone else get a notice when trying withdraw / roll over , that it says you can’t cause of being “active employee”?
I just heard from a former coworker, who just got a massive 3 figure check. They wanted to know if they cash it, would that take them out of the class action suit should it be expanded from NJ to nationwide?
It took me a long time to make the decision to definitely leave this company that is falling apart. All those who left before me quickly found jobs in other companies where their talent was recognized and valued. I don't know anyone who went to a... — read more
Now I’m hearing that mgrs are finally visiting customers in person!! And of course blaming the price increases, the poor service etc on the reps!! Yoo-hoo!! Weren’t those reps furloughed for over a year , with instructions to “ have... — read more
OPI is reporting that staples will not move ahead with trying to buy Depot for the 700th time. Instead they will move ahead with other acquisition strategies. Staples never tries anything new so that means that for the 600th time they will try... — read more
Everyone, Feb-May, sold more PPE then they ever did in their lifetimes . Little filled by the time 90% of sales force were furloughed...... Sooo product finally fills in April and May... The end of May arrives and active reps are anticipating... — read more
The punches keep on rolling
Examine this list : “ the furlough is only temporary “ “You’ll keep your accts” “ of course those are real 3m masks “ “ we certainly will not raise your pricing “ ” Guaranteed overnight local delivery “ “ of course we would... — read more
Not to sound insensitive, because I feel for anyone that was involved with WB over the last year... but are there really still furloughed sales reps who actually believe they’re going to be asked back? I mean it’s now been a full calendar year for a... — read more
May be in error on this one. There is published record on some of these loans etc . I don’t see WB on this list . Still doesn’t change the court of public opinion on “ companies who allegedly rip people off during pandemics “
Anyone else hear that furloughed sales won’t return to work ever for Mason? Also that local management couldn’t tell this to them for legal reasons?
Get this !! A customer ordered Clorox wipes in MARCH of 2020!!!! They just arrived last week!!!! Extended lead times of 350 days may apply !!! Great job on this order !! No wonder people are going to other vendors !! Only in masonville!! — read more
Not sure why they aren’t terminating furloughed employees- It’s definitely not because they care about their employees because they DO NOT . They have not communicated to furloughed employees ... Something is not kosher.
sweet sister!!!! WB is now involved in a class action suit for selling fake 3M masks, and for price gouging on these fake masks!!! Google " WB Mason news" !!! I'm sure the customers would LOOOOOOOVE to read about this! So its not... — read more
Who would have the stones to post on their website etc , that March 5 is “ employee appreciation day”? Hope they show appreciation to the thousands that got furloughed . Who but WB .
It's hard enough for a company with limited resources to get things right, BUT these guys have the money.... the issue is they dont have the talent. They have never taken the time to harvest managers that can think on their own... they want puppets... — read more
I was trying to get a job at Amazon. That seemed like a good option to me, but I was out of luck. I’ve been trying to jump off of this sinking ship for three months now, but it’s not as simple as some say. What are your experiences like? How long... — read more
As someone who was “lucky” enough to not be furloughed, I feel like the lucky ones were everyone who was furloughed. I’m watching everything that was built over the last 30 years come crumbling down. Management is more worried about what former... — read more
