And this is just the middle-management folks. One story I read this morning predicted further layoffs at the store level.
That’s what I learned during my time in retail.
Until they pull the plug, they will always need somebody to show up in the morning with a key and open the door.
But when they get in a bind, home office becomes an absolute bloodbath.
This has got to be the biggest joke of the year. The last time I was in Best Buy it looked like NOBODY worked there. Customers were standing around looking for someone to assist them and employees would just walk by doing nothing.
Their service is about a bad as it gets. It’s hard to get timely service when there is a store fully of customer and a very limited staff to service them.
What does Best Buy management do, cut the staff. Brilliant move, less staff less service to a business that has really, really poor service now, brilliant just brilliant.
