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

Age Discrimination Law Suits

With all the fake metric excuses being used to fire all the older managers (READ HIGHER PAID) the wrongful dismissal lawsuits for age discrimination are following. There may be enough of these to support a CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT. What do you think?

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?

Life After Staples

Many great former colleagues of mine were let go last week. I’d like them all to know that there IS life after Staples and it’s a damn fine life. Unemployment is 3.7% and most great employers can’t find employees. Staples on the other hand can’t... —  read more

How long will the layoffs continue?

It’s obvious that we will never be entirely safe, not with this leadership at least, but does anyone know how long will this go on on such a big scale? When could we expect to feel, at least relatively safe?

Did not take long...

To lose the confidence and trust of the new leadership. You can’t paint a pig and make it look pretty. Sandy could not even show his face today.
