Will stores be hiring extra for BF?
How many store close so far?
Looks like lay off 700 people at the end of q4 in corporate, save yourself
Just heard that Office Depot announced it will close an additional 300 stores. Does anyone know when? And is it on top of those 400 they announced earlier? If it is, we will be cut buy half. Either way, seems to me there will be no one left here... read more
It's all way to quite here. Did everyone get fired ? Is anyone alive to tell the tales?
This could result in all Max stores closing over a 3 year time frame. Even the 120 stores that signed 5 year leases this year. The logistics aren't working. The cost to convert systems is over the expected revenue of keeping door open.
ha ha ha ha You deserve to be fired. I'm sure your days are numbered. Blame yourself Roland.
Any thoughts? Considering Staple's lawyer did not even mount a case and simply requested a ruling based on how flimsy the FTC's case was, many are predicted the judge will side with Staples. I am for whatever would salvage the most jobs, but Ron and... read more

Any thing coming down from corporate? Have they changed payout of bonuses or when annual evals are done? I don't know how corrupt OD/OM management is, but I can tell you that if there is a way to term people without severance or UI, Staples will do... read more

Anyone know if this has any truth to it?
Staples culled 500 employees this week. If they can't take care of Staples what will happen to ODOM?
Anyone else scared?
The reason they are offering you a position at Staples is so they can find a reason to fire you rather than lay you off and have to pay severance.
What is the likelihood of Office Depot layoffs in Boca Raton in 2016? Please let me know if you have any information.
Bitchin*'s fine, but what you really should be doing is this - WRITE YOUR CONGRESSPERSON - tell 'em that the "top dogs'" salaries should be slashed to save the "peons'" jobs. I'm making it easy for ya - here's the numbers, now get to dialing!!!... read more
Is this true? I was told 2 weeks per year

Our district is seeing ASMS being let go left and right. Anyone else seeing the new staples "synergies" realignments.
25 days until Staples takes over....
One step closer to the buyout. Just waiting for Canada, EU, and the US. Will be crazy to see the immediate shatter of OD. Staples wastes no time "synergizing" when it takes over a company. Hope everyone has got their exit plans in place. 4 minths to... read more
