Do not wait for things to turn out bad - leave now if you are working in NYC.

Feel like severance pay is hush money for not being able to tell everyone what a sh--ty company Barnes and noble is. Well if everyone that was let go tells everyone they know that would be a lot of people not shopping at Barnes and noble anymore. Let’s do it. No loyalty here. No human kindness here. Except for my fellow employees that I love and feel bad for I want the company to close up fast. Let the top execs lose their jobs and see how it feels.
Has anyone else noticed that the paid time off section in the HR access is down " for maintenance" ? The only part that you can't access........
Yup. All leads gone. (well, mostly) I hate to say it but you could see this coming from a mile away. The last two holiday seasons were really slower than previous years and the store looks like its going out of business anyway with all the 50% off sales. They will get bought out or close most of their stores.
My husband just called me to tell me both receiving manager (been there 10+ years) and head cashier (5+ years) were laid off. He's a cafe manager and I have a feeling he's not in a safe position :-(
I'm sorry to all those that lost their jobs unexpectedly today!
No warning in Connecticut either, I never expected to walk into this today.
It's begun in SW Florida too. No warning here, either.
Layoffs have just started. Receiving positions are gone as of today 2/12 along with head cashiers and digital leads. No warning, let us work today before they told us. Should only take a day before the backrooms are all backed up .
This poster is correct. During the latest earnings call the senior management clearly announced 'right sizing' will be taking place to the tune of $40 million. That 'right sizing' is going to include mass layoffs, and benefit cuts for those poor souls who are left behind.
Start working on your resumes, and jump ship. This company has no loyalty to its workforce, they lay off without mercy regardless of how talented or essential you might think you are. They hire a management consulting company to quantify you as a number, and then use that as justification to cut you.
