Hang on to your hats, if you're in SA Sales. Everyone from RSD level and up were required to sign a strict NDA, all meeting in early November to finalize what Sales will look like, but something big is coming to the structure.
It looks like Sycamore can't get any more money out of Staples, so it is time to take the money out of the 401k. Did anyone else notice the change from the Goldman Sachs fund to a Sycamore-owned entity? I guess we should not really be all that... — read more
It’s time for good people to move in a positive direction! The wind is no longer in Staples sails.
No new CEO yet?
Seems that we are losing a few more people at Staples (Un)Professional - any ideas why people are leaving? Did MB get pushed out or is he retiring? Not many good leaders left…
If an employee goes to work knowing they have been diagnosed with covid, should there be disciplinary actions taken?
This place deserves what it gets. Way to go approving a third of the delivery drivers in the hub off for a single day. What kind of a manager does this? Guess those who can be bothered to show up for work that day will be fu---d. Why bother even... — read more
i heard today about another VP leaving. What do the VPs and Directors know that we don’t? Two directors in merchandising just left last month… something is up. Any info out there?
Run. Constant restructures and layoffs. Private equity ownership means little to no investment in the future. The budget is banking on everything (customers back into offices) this fall. If that doesn’t happen, which it won’t with the delta variant... — read more
Retail is a joke. Associates are the backbone and they quit in droves. Pay is so much lower than any other retail job. This right here. We are losing people left and right and amid the current labor shortage and lack of competitive pay, we're lucky... — read more
How true are the rumors that we're looking at a major round of closings before the end of the year? I usually ignore rumors, but I've heard this mentioned enough times in the past month or so that I'm starting to worry. I'm still thinking there's not... — read more
I’m considering joining Staples after a recent offer, working in Corporate. What’s it like to work there? How is leadership? Teamwork, etc.? What do you like and what is one thing you would change?
Why do companies, like Staples, continue to sell products that are linked with forced labor in China? Apple is probably the biggest product I can think of that we sell.
Did Staples abandon their "Back To School" campaign for 2021? Not sure about US, but in Canada, I have not seen anything on TV, radio or online...nothing. Did they decide to sit this one out? This is their "Bread & Butter"...this is where they make... — read more
After Staples and my experience here, I wanted to change not only the company but the industry as well. I think it was worth investing in expanding skills and getting away from here as far as possible. I just wonder how many people here started... — read more
Staples is a fair and solid place to work, they love their employees and customers. Management never thinks they are any better than their fellow co-workers. Upper management is not elitist at all and they hate it when you worship them. You should... — read more
I heard that some employees who are about to retire have been laid off. Is it possible that their loyal employees are so expensive that they have to make such desperate moves and lay off people waiting for retirement??? Terrible. Everyone should... — read more
Inside sales model is coming like self checkout at grocery stores. Cheap.
Talk amongst yourselves
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.
