Even the most negative of us must be inspired by the new Strategy for Staples Inc right? Thoughts on last weeks meeting?
Just saw a post on LinkedIn about layoffs due to reorganization... anyone have updates?
Yet another re-organization going on...more good people getting laid off to help hide the SLT's lack of management ability.
The money being spent at 500 SD is obnoxious. Hideous paint color where it didnt even need to be painted. And now redoing floors to smaller more “collaborative” work spaces. What’s the point?
Layoffs today in saus cs company is a sh-t show
Hey all, I have a friend that's entertaining the idea of joining the company. I've been away from the co for a while now do don't have insight on if it's a good idea or not. Can folks at HQ chime in and provide comments? Good or bad! Maybe just... — read more
I joined Staples Inc last year and have just had an epiphany. Being a jerk pays off! I am going to act like JL from now on, or at least kiss up and take it like the SLT. Watch out world, here I come!
Between November 11th to 18th, beware of some difficult decisions based on retail and commercial results of the first three quarters. These few months are so important. Good luck.
How many people are doing the absolute minimum to get by?
I’m seeing a ton of “I’m leaving Staples” posts on LinkedIn recently. Anyone know what’s going on this time? Seems like mostly US SBA.
I can understand that everything is more expensive right now, but let’s be honest for a second here, our products also got more expensive in the meantime. Yet we none of us can hope for any sort of significant raise which could help us survive the... — read more
Just a had general team meeting cancelled June 21 as there will be a big all hands announcement in Canada for Staples. Rumor says it concerns the Staples Professional and Retail sales teams…has integration of the two finally been determined with... — read more
I have heard murmurs about layoffs coming and it could be a large group from sales, merchandising and even marketing. Anyone have any insight to these reports???
Do company cheerleaders really believe what they're saying (we're doing great, we're turning this ship around) or do you just spew nonsense because it's your job to prop up a failing company? In all honesty, I'll have more respect for you if it's the... — read more
Need a hint? This is it. Get out.
We're these announcements thier choice or??
Office-supply giant Staples is based in Framingham Like the baker that doesn't have bread, Framingham will soon be without a Staples — despite the fact that the multinational office supply retailer is based here in the city... — read more
Don't settle into staying at Staples when there are so many options right now. I know a lot of people are reluctant to leave since they don't know if their situation will improve in the long run, but honestly, how much worse can it get than here? We... — read more
I've herd sence they not giving a raise and with inflation going up so high the union is looking at staples in Beloit. Has anyone else herd this
I've been hearing talk about cuts in May. I don't think the source is too reliable so if somebody here knows more about it, that'd be great. If not, I'm going to take that the person is speaking out of his a-s and is just trying to get all of us... — read more
I see a few Staples love letters posting on LinkedIn. Must have been a recent riff. I get a kick out of the tired "looking forward to the next adventure"...was that before or after the company laid you off?
The longer you work at Staples the less recognized you get and the less rewarded you are.
Everyone required to be back in office for at least 3 days a week starting May 2. Poor timing as fuel prices are at an all time high and employees will have to eat the cost of commuting. Will be the same as taking a pay cut. Wondering how many will... — read more

We know people hate working for staples. Let’s see where the worst place to work in the company is. Stay anonymous, but mention what group you work for, if you’re a current or past employee and an example of some of the craziness. EX- Supply Chain... — read more
Attrition is at al all time high. People leave, so our workload increases. Than some new people are hired and we have to teach them , while handling the increased workload at the same time. Then when the ( cheaper) newbies are thought of, they are... — read more
I used to be very happy here, and now I feel ashamed to still be working here. Anyone else? This is a job only for high schoolers/ college students. All those who left are now paid much more. Those of us who are left here are experiencing daily... — read more
Plenty of employees are unhappy here, let's see what the main reasons are.
I've been here long enough to be used to having to do more for less. My issue is being given work I've never done before and being expected to know how to do it without any training. That's not how it works. Yet, every time I complain I'm the... — read more
I used to be scared at every slightest rumor about cuts. Now when I hear anything about cuts, the first thought is that it would bring me some kind of relief as well. Anyone else? I started looking for another job and it is encouraging that many... — read more
Staples hasn't been a good place to work for years. The latest layoffs are just another proof of that. There are many companies that are hiring right now that DO offer better pay and benefits (as somebody asked in another thread), and a much better... — read more
I hate when we have no idea what's going on and there's no official word on layoffs, whether they're done or not. Does anybody know how many people were affected yesterday and what was hit? Have there been any more cuts today? A little more... — read more
RQD video of her putting a chair together on LinkedIn with, what looks to be, during business hours from her home tells you how far our great company has fallen. Next week’s video? How to turn all those bottles of hand sanitizer into cooking oil. — read more
If I could, I would've quit this place as soon as I found out that the new hire was paid more than me. I hope to find something new soon and leave because I don't want to work in a company that humiliates its employees like that. I’m sorry to see... — read more
Good luck. They will be Wednesday 3/16.
What happened today? I heard only good things about their strong performance.
Since so many are quitting, I'm guessing this is a great time to find a new job? Is this true? How long is it taking people on average to find a new position? And I mean a position that pays better and has better benefits, there's no reason to leave... — read more
Hang on because the latest Staples layoff is about to begin. Being the Staples Perf Review time of year, managers were told by directors earlier to put as much as 10% of their respective teams into the Does No Meet Expectations, or the Mostly Meets... — read more
