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
Topics regarding layoffs at Staples Inc.
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
Because we all could use something to smile about. https://www.nzherald.co.nz/business/news/article.cfm?c_id=3&objectid=12267350
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
I joined Staples in 1997. Back then it was a dynamic growth company. Our claim to fame was that we opened a store every 48 hours, which by the way ended up being the bane or retails existence several years later. Tom was an amazing leader until he... — read more
With approaching 100k publicized store closures, and who knows how many more that didn't get reported, I am shocked that revenues are tumbling and layoffs are happening at Staples. Who knew that the economy is all connected? Who knew that closing... — read more
Any info on what locations were impacted today? Don’t see anyone posting locations or reporting layoffs ? Do we know what locations could be hit in the following days?

Or will this drag on throughout the entire week?
One of the worst companies to work for!! No value for employees. I was about togo on maternity leave starting next month and they were in the process of hiring a temp contractor while I was gone and they laid me off yesterday without even offering... — read more
Definitely sales better hold on. Nobody is safe this is a business. I would definitely start planning the future of u are in this role as well. Good luck to everyone.
Phone call? Meeting? Email? I haven't been here that long so I have no idea what to expect - and I don't think I can handle another day of stressing over every mail and every phone call. I also think I'm vulnerable precisely because I haven't been... — read more
We know we are looking at more layoffs today, any ideas what is going to get hit? I'm having trouble sleeping, worrying if my name will be on the list. I really wish they did this in one day, prolonging it only serves to torture us. Also, good... — read more
Thousands spent on last minute signage? The booze flowing freely? Highly paid speechwriters? Hotel rooms and flights for all those employees? DJs? Bands? Fireworks? The big reveal of a slightly modified logo? That cost ($16M) would have saved a lot... — read more
Merchandising? Happened in Merch and Portfolio today?
This is nothing new. Once there is a new department created and the VP’s have no idea what they are doing and give random bonuses to get staff members to join this “amazing role that is going to make the company more money and satisfied clients”(so... — read more
Heard some people in multiple departments got impacted. Loray and Lussen for sure.
Is it safe to say the sales teams are ok in Florida? Or is this for all nationwide? Any departments get an answer yet on whether they are staying or going?
Will the department take a hit or is it safe to move into a role there?...
Some say 250, some 400... Is there any way to found out?
IT is being hit right now, big time. Given how expensive IT resources are, nobody is surprised – I am not saying those folks do not deserve it, I am just saying it’s a big cost center. Anyhow, support staff at corporate is getting hit as... — read more
Lots of Director & VPs clobbered today... Not a good day.
Will there be more tomorrow or can we consider ourselves safe if we survived today?
So tired of seeing some of our best people walked out while the management that made the bad decisions that put this company in a position it is in remains intact. How is this okay? Do they not see how this is affecting everybody - those leaving... — read more
What's affected? Any news?
Not going to be good...
