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

A comprehensive list of all leaders who were let go

Several leaders were let go in the recent bloodbath. More to come. 15+ VPs and Sr. Directors and around 10 Directors were laid off. Some of them were shocking as they were true leaders who were helping this company turn around - guess SD/SP didn'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.

Next Round Coming Soon HQ

Layoffs far from over. Most levels 38 and above affected. Select few will remain. Across the board! Outsourcing and home basing resources. If you work remote out of state, you're gone. Not maybe. You're gone. Expect the following; increased... —  read more

Perspective

I joined Staples in 1997. Back then it was a dynamic growth company. Our claim to fame was that we opened a store every 48 hours, which by the way ended up being the bane or retails existence several years later. Tom was an amazing leader until he... —  read more

I for one am surprised...

With approaching 100k publicized store closures, and who knows how many more that didn't get reported, I am shocked that revenues are tumbling and layoffs are happening at Staples. Who knew that the economy is all connected? Who knew that closing... —  read more

How is it done?

Phone call? Meeting? Email? I haven't been here that long so I have no idea what to expect - and I don't think I can handle another day of stressing over every mail and every phone call. I also think I'm vulnerable precisely because I haven't been... —  read more

More today?

We know we are looking at more layoffs today, any ideas what is going to get hit? I'm having trouble sleeping, worrying if my name will be on the list. I really wish they did this in one day, prolonging it only serves to torture us. Also, good... —  read more

Remember the fireworks in Florida?

Thousands spent on last minute signage? The booze flowing freely? Highly paid speechwriters? Hotel rooms and flights for all those employees? DJs? Bands? Fireworks? The big reveal of a slightly modified logo? That cost ($16M) would have saved a lot... —  read more

Going down.. down... down !!!

Whats going on with Florida Location

Is it safe to say the sales teams are ok in Florida? Or is this for all nationwide? Any departments get an answer yet on whether they are staying or going?

The Final Phase by Sycamore Partners

IT is being hit right now, big time. Given how expensive IT resources are, nobody is surprised – I am not saying those folks do not deserve it, I am just saying it’s a big cost center. Anyhow, support staff at corporate is getting hit as... —  read more

I'm so tired of this...

So tired of seeing some of our best people walked out while the management that made the bad decisions that put this company in a position it is in remains intact. How is this okay? Do they not see how this is affecting everybody - those leaving... —  read more
