Severance payment

Does anyone else feel that they were screwed over with the severance payment? I was taxed at an outrages rate due to it being a lump sum. More than 1/3 of the severance went to taxes. Instead of giving the option for smaller sums over time, B&N only... read more

any managers looking for new jobs?

So, I'm curious if any current ASMs and MMs are looking for other jobs? Pretty sure at least one ASM and one MM are at my store. Does this bode well for the company let along the individual store?

I believe that it was a job description massacre,

Good read

I am not management, but I am now the only receiver so I communicate with them a lot. They (SM, both ASMs) have told me that soon the job postings will go up for part timers to replace the hours lost from the four leads and RM lost on Monday. The RM... read more

Math Question

Our payroll has been cut back so much in recent weeks that as a ( former ) full timer, I was 1 person doing the work of 2 people. Does that mean they will have to hire 2 part timers to do the work of 4 people?

This seems to keep cropping up- there was no WARN violation committed. It only pertains too more than 50 employees laid off- per location. Which did not happen. To think that BN didn’t have a legal team reviewing their moves for months to ensure they... read more
