Topics regarding layoffs at Staples Inc.
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
Transforming or destroying?
Yet another HUGE waste of time. What fool approved this nonsense?
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
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?
Is anyone hearing about layoffs happening today? I’ve heard about a handful in Retail...

7 weeks, please, Sandy, try again
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.
Rate your role, quota, pay, manager, director and VP.
Ask they said - thou shall be given to you.
Not sure where this information is coming from but I work in staples retail and the forecast is strong. Lots of investing going on. Big things to come in for Retail. New Brand Defining Stores. New POS system. Replacing all IT hardware in all stores... — read more
essendant just sold the industrial and automotive business segments the only segments that had increased sales last year. sp and staples didn't waste much time getting around to this.
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?
Seeing that there are so many layers that are useless, someone higher up mentioned that directors of TAMS/KAMS and CSS teams will be re-organizing by end of year....
Just heard the news that retail is safe... for now anyways. What are your thoughts? Mine- well... not good
These fools are useless. Why does SP keep them? Pulling down 250K per year +
Any layoffs or news?
Not over, more layoffs after split of Retail and NAD. Get ready, there is NO certainty. Good Luck!

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
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

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?
Is SP getting ready to sell off Staples US Retail Stores?
My mom was just laid off, I'm wondering how long will it take before she receives the severance? Does anybody know?
Don't think you are safe yet, people. The layoffs will continue today and tomorrow.
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.
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
