I never post anything or read much into this site but I am very bitter with this company. For almost 5 years I was a contractor, no complaints either and always performed my work @ 100% no matter what and never trash talked the company. But over... — read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Staples Inc.
I haven't received any information from the management on BONUS for the year 2019. I was part of the USR home office and now no longer works there. Just want to make sure that its everyone didn't received it or its just me.
I wonder if Staples is going to get rid of all outside AM and outside sales? I know some managers have just hired outside B2B but I find it very odd that there are no jobs for outside sales on the job board! Any thoughts?
Why is ecommerce such an abysmal failure? Is it assortment, leaders, or both? I mean, any gains are from panic buyers (sanitizer, wipes). Not actual talent or strategy IMO. How many ways can you sell paper and ink? Staples was #2, now it's not... — read more
Did anyone see the new update from SD? I mean, I know he’s a puppet for SP but could they at least find a competent puppet and not one that gets up there and sounds like he pounded a 12 pack before they hand him the mic? My god....it’s terrifying... — read more
Do any other FC locations have to start working on Sundays? We received an announcement today.
The senior (white) leadership fumbling over themselves to join the woke olympics is becoming a classic diversion from utter failure. It's fun to watch. We will go down but we will go down socially righteous. So we have that at least. Not... — read more
While leadership is making changes they should seriously think about getting rid of The Loop. If you have good salespeople talking to customers this becomes a redundant waste of money and resources. In addition, it provides no value to either the... — read more
What do you think will change?
Who is still furloughed? Back Full Time now?
I’ve seen several LinkedIn posts with current employees sharing pics of “care packages” with purell, wipes, etc. “I love how my company takes care of us, blah blah blah.” Yeah, except for the thousands they fired. And you’re next—regardless of a few... — read more
Just got off call. We are no longer needed. Goodbye..
I understand the situation is bad, I understand some adjustments are needed, but what's the point in lying to us? That's what I don't understand. Why call us to say we can expect to be called back and then weeks later call us again to let us know we... — read more
It has begun, as expected. Good luck to anyone impacted.
Too bad that's all that's here most the time. Waste of time reading this c-ap.
Has anyone else noticed a trend of those being played off posting sappy love notes about how they loved the company and that it was a great place? Makes me think there is a stipulation in the severance that requires it or something. Anyone know what... — read more
I've been out here watching all the speculation and it only serves to make people more anxious. I've been on furlough since the beginning of April and my manager has been more that willing to answer my questions. I'd advise don't listen to rumors... — read more
Is anyone hearing any details yet for USR? Hearing the action may take place next week. On furlough now and waiting to find out if my job will come back. I have been looking for a new position since furlough started but jobs are drying up fast with... — read more
Is anyone else hoping to be laid off by this money hungry hell hole? No? Just me? I'm sorry to everyone who has been laid off thus far but you're better off without this place.
If I haven’t heard anything yet about being laid off or when I’d be returning to work yet they are still posting ads for jobs on indeed.com for associates for other departments, why wouldn’t they contact the associates they haven’t brought back yet... — read more
I find it interesting that there hasn’t been one article published or news about the recent layoffs. I know Staples is private but you cannot get any information or rumors on this company except here. Clearly Sycamore has an exit strategy coming up... — read more
If I’m laid off, will the company still pay me for my vacation and sick time that I never took? I still haven’t heard when/if I’m returning just asking in case I find out that I’m let go sometime soon.
I saw the Question and answers about Mass - does anyone know if you can collect severance and unemployment in NYS? I also know we will be receiving PTO pay next Friday. Same question - does that impact unemployment payment?
I work at a Staples warehouse Fullfilment Center and I’ve been checking in with HR every couple weeks to find out what’s going on and I’m being told the same thing that I’m number four on the list for my department to be called back. Last I heard... — read more
Usually, there are no layoffs on Fridays, but nothing would surprise me anymore.
In state of Massachusetts can you collect unemployment while receiving severance?
About 75% of my office was let go over the past month, most on 6/17. Does anyone know how many total people were let go?
Have there been any layoffs in retail? Either furloughed or non furloughed people?
So after a few hours to digest my job loss today, I am relieved to not have the worry and uncertainty linger over me. Going into the job market isn’t appealing but it has to be better than remaining at Staples where the workload is unbearable with... — read more
The messaging isn’t clear on who or what departments are being cut - maybe I missed an email? Too scared to ask my boss for details in case I get added to the list...any big changes?
Anyone have there 1-on-1 yet, with updated Real info? I know everyone is worried, but all these past posts are different. Yes there will prob be more layoffs, everyone saw that coming. I do wish you all the best and hope most of these rumors are just... — read more
Is this a companywide layoff?
Rule is you are notified early in the morning before the news gets out - HQ office impacted. Blessing in disguise for most of us. Severance can’t be denied, rules can’t change last minute.
Anxiety high tonight since my manager scheduled a meeting tomorrow. I’m in TA. Anyone else get a last minute meeting?
Tomorrow is the big cut. What are you hearing?
Two Supply Chain RVP’s (PM and WB) were let go today. Furloughed associates will be notified Wednesday that their jobs are being eliminated entirely.
Did STPLS receive PPP assistance? If they did, wouldn’t that limit their ability to layoff employees?
What’s happening with retail? Office Depot has announced that they’re closing 160 stores? Has staples announced any similar action?
Going back to the office? Do you people have concerns about getting back into the office? Or is everyone more comfortable working at home?
