DM, Why is morale so low?

District Manager wants to know why the morale is so low in our area. Of course the answer is to cut hours and find someone to blame it on. I'm too scared to say that my team is doing awesome but having to scold them every five minutes about ESP... —  read more

SP has got nothin

SP hoped to pick the bones of a dieing Staples. They brought zero innovation or change, not because they had no ideas (they didn't) but because that wasn't there intent. Rescuing Staples was always too much work. The last best chance might have... —  read more 

Quit if you don’t like it

Go ahead, I dare you. I see people complaining about how bad Staples is, how it’s going to go down in smokes. If you hate the company so much why don’t you grow a pair and leave. No one is forcing you to stay. The company doesn’t need you. There is... —  read more

Nothing but rumors

So has anyone actually lost their job in October? I haven’t heard of anyone and I think all these rumors of layoffs are just that - rumors. We need to stop with the fear mongering and focus on the task at hand. Enough of the gloom and doom especially... —  read more

Have things improved any?

I left on my own a few years ago. I was happy to find a good job with good pay and job security. Which lasted for about two years. Now we're having monthly layoffs and I'm back where I've started, it seems. I just wanted to check if things have... —  read more
