Every day, I drive 45 minutes to Westbrook, spend 10 hours each day doing my job and more, and then go home to repeat the next day. We all have jobs to do and I work very hard to accomplish mine each day. While I don't agree with the constant layoffs... read more
In the month that starts in 4 days. FSS you're not spared. The new fiscal year can't start until many more job cuts are complete. Don't believe the unbelievable. #MakeFollettGreatAgain
Make sure you know how much PTO time you have... kronos is still wrong at my location and we are all seeing negative time earned, even if 60+ hours rolled over and show on our last pay stubs.
One Follett is dead. Share services moving back to the business units.

Those that have left (congrats) what sort of jobs did you find? I am struggling with what direction to look. Being middle aged, not easy starting over after being with the same company for 20+ years. I don't want regular retail, as the hours are not... read more

Went out to the Innovation submission website last week and determined that not a single submission other than benefits/PTO changes have been made. It has been a year and NOTHING has been completed. It is obvious that all downloadbesttorrentblog.rus throughout the... read more

Why did you pay good money to build the web version of CT. It is complete garbage and does not work. My store is dying a slow death with CT Web. Please scrap it and revert to CT. Even if it was developed without issues, it would still not provide any... read more

I really don't know if it makes any difference but Amazon just announced that they're building warehouses in both Waukegan and Aurora how does this affect the Follett distribution center?
Well I got Follett on the naughty list and it was beautiful. Santa gave me a nice present this year. After more than 10 years service with the company and dealing with the changes thinking I survived, I was terminated stating a reduction in force and... read more
I quit in November after they went to hourly pay and dropped everyone's rate. I wasn't going to wait for the other shoe to drop. There is a lot of opportunities for great jobs outside of Follett. I no longer stress out, overwork, have to be on call... read more
Acceptance is the only demon you must confront in this company right now. You are accepting this kind of treatment, you are accepting this kind of pay, you are accepting the culture. If you weren't these issues would not be here. Trust me I left 2... read more

Paying them well, mentoring them, challenging them, promote them, involve them, APPRECIATE them, VALUE them, include them in the mission, vision or BHAG, empower them and most of all trust them.
Anyone know why Follett opened an office in Dubai?
There is a lawsuit against Follett. It was about time.
So after Ray said there were no new layoffs planned they canned 25+ people but then turned around and hired a new SVP/ CFO because we need another bean counter to tell us how we aren't making enough and that we need to trim the fat all the while I'm... read more
