Engineering department is so bad

Staples is closing it's store in Eugene

Staples announced, in a written statement, that the store in Eugene (Ore.) is set to close by November 9th. Another sad example that online sales are the nail in the coffin of brick and mortar stores. Feel for the workers that lost their jobs and... read more

No sales people needed?

Essendant doesn't need as many sales reps based on their model. If they are a wholesaler, then they would just be calling on smaller distributors. Do they do a lot of direct sales to end users? I looked at LinkedIn like you suggested and 8% of the... read more

The Essendant buy - keep the champagne on ice

SBA Employees No Commision

Push employees to the brink and then not pay them? On what planet is this acceptable? Sandy, when will you step in? Good people, hard workers not being able to support their families. Shame on you Staples.

Directors and managers in SBA

Something is about to happen. These folks are coming apart at the seams. I have seen the effects of pressure in the past but nothing to this extent. No more exiting early on fridays!

SBA expense reports

These reports have many more eyes on them. Guess I need to be more careful of what goes on them. No more bar tabs! Damn it!

Future of SBA
