Is the gender neutral term. I hope you will use this going forward Staples. No Spanish speaking country uses LatinX. That is whitewashing and is not pronounceable in their native tongue.
Topics regarding layoffs at Staples Inc.
Any word on who, if anyone, is taking over?
We had HR at our facility today but there has been no word on anything and I’ve heard of no one getting laid off yet. Anyone know anything?
No one, and I mean NO ONE is safe at staples. This is a sinking ship, like the Titanic, only worse. There are zero lifeboats. And before you ask, I am a current employee. I’ve seen people who spent years with this company laid off, and I’ve seen... — read more
Hi does anyone know if we get laid off if we are getting severance or PTO?
I have seen some stories on here but the lies this week on this page are really sick.
This company is one of the worst anyone can work for if rumors of another layoff are true. It’s bad enough that so many hard working individuals have been cut already, and now we’re looking at more? I’ve had the pleasure of working alongside... — read more
I dont understand why everyone doesnt like Staples. I came to this country they game me a job. Paid me 100k per year. Gives me a raise and a bonus every year. I get to work at home. This is pretty much the best company to work for who treats... — read more
Outside sellers across all categories should prepare for it.
Leadership needs to go..
Whether cuts are coming next week or the one after or even in a month doesn't really matter. The point is that the cuts never stop at Staples. If you are not affected this time, you will be in one of the next rounds. This should be common knowledge... — read more
Heard from multiple sources that there will be cuts in many areas in 2 weeks. It never ends at this place
No recognition story for inside sales or .com? Still an outside driven company although results have proven more successful with proactive inside sales engagement. Let’s pay outside sales twice as much for half the accountability and give all... — read more
How did that happen? KAC is leaving Staples after almost 25 years - what’s going on? Did she jump or was she pushed? She is a lifer!
Make sure to give your honest reviews of the best company to have ever existed! Remember that it’s anonymous too! I definitely didn’t give this company a bad rating and you shouldn’t either! Hooray for Staples and hooray for Sycamore! I’m gonna post... — read more
OMG - the leadership has started posting the registration for the Virtual Business Expo on LinkedIn - with no speaking sessions set up and no gold level sponsors. Is this another way to pull funding from vendors as SBA Canada misses sales by 20%? Or... — read more
The summer of SD political activism hit a tipping point last week. Overboard or the right message?
Not a place for Gratuitous self promotion or Narcism.
Expect significant downsizing as IKAMS take on traditional roles of lines of business salespeople. Be aware. More changes coming.
Any news on what’s happening on the merger of marketing and merchandising? A lot seems to be under wraps...
Staples has been the worst company I have worked for. Between the lack of formal training and people who are lazy and unwilling to work together as a team, it was a terrible working experience. Like so many others, I was hired, came in with fresh... — read more
Anyone else think Andrew Thorp is the biggest scumbag, bozo. This guy tries giving off the south Boston attitude with the way he walks, talks and demands things. He never thanks u for stopping everything else ur doing to help him. Then when sh– hits... — read more
Sycamore acquired southern department store chain Belk in late 2015 and had RUN IT INTO THE GROUND, the same will happen to staples, very sad but true
3 years ago I got to start my career with Staples as an account manager and loved every minute of it. Throughout my journey I mastered the systems, was praised for my hard work, always met quota and KPI’s, trained new employees, but every time I... — read more
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
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
