The relief you get when you leave or been forced to leave

If the rare few who are still at the stores get the chance, LEAVE. I've been out since April (not the Fall layoffs like this board swore there would be) getting a check from another place is so worth it. While my new job is horrible, at least this... read more

Weather related closings?

Managers were paid on these days if they did any work at all, even from home. Now what? I feel like nobody is telling us the expectations, rules, typical of Follett to roll out a new plan with no info.
