There is life outside of Staples

I worked for Staples for 17 years, through the good years in the beginning where we made money hand over fist, and through the rough years where some years there were no bonuses at all paid out. It always felt like a kick in the pants because our... —  read more

SBA Canada Sale to Canada Retail?

What are the chances of SBA Canada being sold to Canada Retail? With sales and EBITDA off target (I think), and still lots of channel confusion - do we think that SD might just sell up to Canada Retail and focus on the US? If so, even more people... —  read more

Scary working for this company

There is so much uncertainty and the direction seems all over the place. The push for voluntary resignations will lead to layoffs. Who in their right mind would ask to resign if it was not a guarantee? So disappointing in a company I have dedicated... —  read more

Misleading classification

Stressing retail in your classification is a joke. Retail accounts for a sliver of income. It is not the brick and mortar that make money - for the or OD/OM. It is the b2b division, the reason the FTC shot down a merger.

SD on LinkedIn

I am finding it hysterical that SD (CEO) has a post on LinkedIn. It has 56 likes. Next is a post about some random meaningless topic that barely anyone would be interested in. It has 253 likes and 90,000 views. Yo SD #fail! And nobody matters at... —  read more

Forcing staff to make FS Purchases

How bad can it be at Staples if SBA Canada is FORCING associates to spend $50 a week each on buying FS products to make the EBITDA target? How stupid has management become - and can Sandy really support these sorts of dumb ideas?
