The TNDC loaded the last pallet yesterday. The DC in now emply. We've been working 10 and 12 hour shifts these past few weeks in order to get everything out. I've read several post about lack of product. Not sure why that is because we've been processing in excess if 400,000 a day. No telling how may trucks we filled on a daily basis.

A internet toast is due to all our peeps in LaVerne. They did fantastic work always, under brutal conditions.

Thanks and good luck wherever you may go!

Try to control your baser instincts, King. I'm sure there's a Good King just dying to emerge.

Hey, for the most part I liked my job and my coworkers are my extended family. It paid the bill for many years and now it's onward and upward. Maybe you should try getting a job instead of wasting your time just being an ass.

I hear Amazon is opening a warehouse in Tennessee. I wonder if that's going to be near you guys.

Re: Good Luck to all
I worked in Lavergne, and I'll tell ya, there's nothing like working with a bunch of smelly spics and chinks with no work ethics and no english-speaking skills. We got soooooooo much work done and done correctly because of them. And outsourcing our call center in the fucking Philippines? Brilliant idea. It's no wonder Borders crumbled. R.A.W. hurrah! R.A.W. hurrah!!!!

I wish you all good luck.

YES. There is life after Borders.

Set your mind on making the transition.

can you write about working in the DC for the past few weeks/months/years?
(Anonymous) on August 19th, 2011 03:58 am (UTC)
sure. everything about it sucked. the conditions, the people, the policies, the environment, the pay, and all the backbreaking labor. I regret every moment being there and wish i'd gotten out years ago. I'll probably see if Amazon's got job openings at their new warehouse. i have no doubt things would be better under Amazon's management.

Re: sure
this is a new amazon warehouse in laverne?
(Anonymous) on August 20th, 2011 04:16 pm (UTC)
Re: sure

Amazon is opening in Chattanooga, which is roughly an hour away, and in Lebanon, which is about a 30 minute drive.

Re: sure
I remember my time in LaVergne well. The Hispanics and Asians working there were some of the nicest people you will ever meet on this earth. They were hardworking, never absent, never late, respectful and polite. The locals were generally ill-mannered, foul-mouthed and loaded with the baggage of self-entitlement. They acted as if they were only at BGI as a last resort, and their resentment showed in everything they did.

I know the good apples at LaVergne will land on their feet and thrive. Good luck to you all!

If I had to guesstimate, I'd say each pallet we get is 70% bargain, 20% calendars, and 10% regular stock. So I guess I can see why people would say there's lack of product, even though bargain is still bargain. We're having trouble getting it all out on the floor, honestly. But I'm seriously sick of all this augment shit. It's ridiculous.

You must work at my store. We're selling stuff I've never seen before. People keep buying the weirdest stuff, so maybe that's why they've sent us so much, that our store is beginning to seem full again.

current customer taste has NOTHING to do with it, idiot. The liquidators are just trying to clear out their warehouses of all the junk that didn't sell at a non-Borders store.
(Anonymous) on August 20th, 2011 06:19 am (UTC)
We've been getting a lot of product in the store. Shelved a bunch of stuff today. Thanks for all the hard work.
