Topics regarding layoffs at Follett
With today's posting of George Coe being promoted to COO seems to me that He is setting up his eventual exit. I love the way he praised Coe's leadership and business results because they were so good a failing organization like Follett swooped in and... read more
Are there more layoffs in the horizon? Any ideas of what departments may get hit? Wholesale or "B2B" seems to be struggling
Received shipment of clothing after rush and FA is closed!!! Old styles and sizes not needed. Follett must be trying to clear out warehouses and dump the junk at the stores. We might have sold some items a few weeks ago but not now.! Items going from... read more
The HB1 workers are not skilled more than American workers but instead they get a much lower wage so it's cheaper to keep them and fire American workers. Such unfair business practice because American workers have to train them to do the work. It is... read more
New MMS update! Guess what, it doesn't work!!😝😝😝😝

Hold back your opinions of those of the glorious executive suite. No matter how poorly they perform...they are after all the chosen ones. They must live with their decisions and will have to explain their actions upon their deaths to the Chairman... read more
For a brief period, follet's overall "star score" dropped below 3. All of a sudden, brief garbage reviews with 4 stars or more have appeared. Many in the last 3 weeks. Score is a hair above 3 again. Oops, it just dropped to 2.9 again (out of 5). Hang... read more
Is anyone's RM acting odd? Mine is practically absent. Haven't heard a peep in person in months. Rarely get emails. Seems especially odd not hearing during rush. Any thoughts? Just burnout like the rest of us maybe?
If we are going to be without a job why don't they just say so..so everyone can look for another job.
I don't have any inside information about layoffs, or comforting words for my friends who have been let go. I am saddened each day I go to work and see the empty desks and hear about more friends who have been let go. I also know our senior leaders... read more
Town hall info post was removed?
Someone posted some BIG news under the thread "Amazon is hiring!! 100,000 employees, sending my resume".
Ok so I am putting myself out on a limb here but I feel everyone needs to know the truth here. The family and board have been purposely steering the business into the ground after multiple failed attempts to sell the business. More pieces will start... read more
We learned from POTUS that there are alternative facts. There will be no more layoffs We value our employees We invest in companies that are market leaders in growth industries We have a world class executive class leadership team We are in a SLOG... read more
Since the first of the year there have been 18 Glassdoor reviews published. More than half are shill reviews posted by HR/Recruiting. Consider how much time is spent monitoring and responding with fake reviews. Consider posting your own real review... read more

"We will bring back American jobs back to the American People." Will Follett struggle more?
Why were all the managers meeting all day today at Home Office? Every manager that I was looking for today was in a meeting. Inquiring minds wanna know.
Follett is really delivering the benefits for employees. Sign up to have lunch with your favorite CEO, it could be your last meal and perhaps you get to request what you want. We have all been on death row just waiting for our numbers to come up for... read more
Here's the Top Ten things you should do if you think you might get laid off this round on Feb 1st...and if you are sure that you won't be laid off, just keep dreaming. 10...Take home your personal items. Sure they will let you pack them up or they'll... read more
Why is it the lower level employees pay for the mistakes and decisions of senior management. I was laid off last year and it ticks me off that senior staff remains in tact. You need to re-read the Follett values, especially the value of... read more
Here are some ideas. Cut the overwhelmingly staffed executive suite and use those savings to support employee benefits and jobs. Empower team members. Honest communication/transparency at all levels of the organization. Treat all levels with respect... read more
Do any members of the family still hold positions with the company, other than just sitting on a board? So many used to actually work along side of many if us. Where did they all go?
Do you think the select group of arrogant, entitled mid and senior level managers are smart enough to see the walls closing in on them? Or, are they blissfully ignorant to the re-creation of Sears and Kmart inside their building?
I'm done! Not because of the 401k cuts, not because of no merit increase, and not because of the bonus restrictions. It's because of the lunchroom supplies being taken away! That's the final straw!
So how is everyone's rush going? Did not see much chatter about price matching this time around.
How will we ever compete against Amazon. I have two kids in college, a Follett employee and it is cheaper for me to get my textbooks from Amazon. This is just icing on the cake. Maybe if my kids got financial aid it may persuade us to shop the school... read more
