I heard of a few layoffs in corporate USR today. Does anyone know of any others? I heard AS
No Merritt this year. Glad we all worked so hard and for all the extra hours we worked. Your welcome staples :(
Friday the creative team was let go who’s next? Jobs went to India I assume…
It would cool if Staples offered an early retirement package to those of us with 25 plus years of service. Make it worth taking a good long look at it.
I am so disappointed in how Staoles have demotivated BDMs by cutting commission structures for employees. This company use to be a good place to work,now everyone is discussing money and wanting to leave. People are constantly being approached and... — read more
I left a few months ago for a competitor and I noticed how much life has improved since then. The differences financially and mentally were astounding not to mention the quality of my peers and leadership. I never thought I’d say this because I used... — read more
Hi all - I’ve decided it’s time to go. What are the best places to go with Staples on your resume? My relatives all tell me that it’s like Sears and RadioShack but I’d like to think there is still some respect out there. Thoughts? — read more
Well, June has come and gone. No layoffs. The one poster who felt vindicated that his predicted "massacre" came in the form of the CEO leaving was almost comical, but was mostly sad. This website used to have a little credibility, but now it's... — read more
Who all was impacted?
Having us go back to the office setting saying its “safe if vaccinated” is totally rubbish. Our office space is normally a cesspool of germs because if 1 person gets sick, everyone gets sick. The vaccine is only supposed to be effective 3-6 months... — read more
If you've been looking to leave but the job market was stopping you, now's your time. There are jobs everywhere and decently paying jobs at that. Companies are trying really hard to fill positions but for as long as people are receiving extra... — read more
No reputable business tells their account managers that they will earn more money than in years past under the new 2021 anaplan model, all while hiding sales quota details and stacking books with deadbeat accounts to hold revenue down. SLT is... — read more
I just wonder if there is any limit to how much employees can be loaded with work here? That limit doesn’t seem to exist, especially if they notice you’re working hard. They are great at detecting who can be loaded with a ton of work without... — read more
Thoughts on what this means?
Last year was all about dropping more and more work on us and constantly criticizing that we’re not doing enough. We thought those practices would eventually stop but the managers keep on doing it. On the other hand, I heard from a friend who worlds... — read more
From what I understand from some lawyer friends staples can’t be asking to ask and scan copies of vax cards. That is against our rights and discrimination of those who can’t get vax for underlying medical conditions or religious beliefs. — read more
Unfortunately, people don’t learn anything from other people’s mistakes and that’s why there are still those who think they are safe and that their hard work and good performance will be enough to keep their job. So my colleague thought he had no... — read more
Increasingly concerned what the restructure plan is mid year. We saw the June massacre last year. Will we have a repeat?
https://www.streetinsider.com/Corporate+News/UPDATE%3A+Staples+Offers+to+Acquire+ODP+Corporation+%28ODP%29+Consumer+Business+for+%2418.27Share/18521460.html These scumbags just don't back off!
Until the company trolls showed up. Let the trolls troll, they just further prove our point that there are. some nasty toxic insensitive people in our midst. Good people, keep doin what you’re doing.
No need to have Outside Sales do Outside sales..... It can all be done with no direct customer facing meetings. Writing is on the wall for outside sales. Exits are in the air!
Ever since I came to this ridiculous company, I’ve been more concerned about whether the layoffs are around the corner or I can finally relax and do my job in peace. I had never worked for a company where I was more anxious than here. It seems that I... — read more
The only thing I was sorry about when I gave notice were my colleagues. It would be much easier for me if we all gave notice at the same time knowing that all my work will be transferred to them. If Staples hires someone for the position, it won't be... — read more
Folks, I've been away from Staples for a while. I've been reading these posts from time to time. I noticed that there is general disdain for SLT. A feeling that nothing is good enough. People trashing the CEO and others. I think two things... — read more
"Whites", "LatinX", "White Females", "Other Ethic Groups" How might you know the gender and race of the survey participants if they were "anonymous"? Clearly they are not. It is highly offensive to be viewed as a monolithic group because of the... — read more
Laughable content in the all hands meeting today. Let’s all update the brand prop and not all the real problems with actual investments, plans, and leaders to drive.
Do you have one of those on your staff? The employee who always seems to have the scoop on layoffs or co-workers going on plan? A few days later, this person’s destructive gossip becomes reality. How does this happen at a company so focused on so... — read more
Confirmation Staples closings some FC's. Just keeps getting worse for Staples folks
What happened to SR? Last day today - after just 3 years and no IPO? Is this part of the SBA merger?
I didn’t want to wait for them to give me layoff so I gave them a notice. In any case, anyone who gets laid off or leaves this company will certainly do better than Staples. It has become unbearable to work here. I can’t wait to look at this... — read more
Was pulled into the office on Sunday and terminated on the spot without cause. I’m from Australia originally, I find it despicable corporation’s like staples here in North America can let go of their team so easily, it’s actually illegal where I’m... — read more
People at the top from dip sh-t Sandy Di-k and all regional managers are a god damn joke and when this place fails none of them deserve another job
Company has been hemorrhaging talent for several years now, especially on the digital side. All while "ecommerce is the future." The fact that even the incompetent CTO fled the sinking ship (and was replaced by someone barely technical at all, and no... — read more
I'm too tired every day. I start and finish work tired. When I have a day off, I cannot get enough rest. Total burnout. It was to be expected that I would get into this situation because I have been doing work for several people for months now... — read more
I am 150 percent committed to the job I was trying to keep by working very hard. I do my best. However, I have a feeling that the more I work and the more effort I put in, that the manager wants more. It is no longer clear to me what Staples wants... — read more
Leadership need to get back to there old ways of overall sales goal and move away from talk time and the amount of dials. Yes more dials = more talk time. Need to focus on quality over quantity and that will bring in more sales. Doesn’t matter if... — read more
Can someone in the know explain why Staples would want to buy Retail? Is it just a ploy to buy the BSD business through a "newly structured" deal?
I joined Staples many years ago to be part of an organization that was focused on being first in class, a company that was large, but felt small, one whose management was focused on supporting their teams and were servant leaders. What do we... — read more
