Count your days .. they are coming for YOU!
The Directors in Facilities are just one big waste of money. Useless folks that add NO value. Why is SP keeping them?
Anybody else? Many employees that I am aware of ripped Staples to shreds. I do not understand why they send it out when they know it will not be favorable, and then pretend to “hear us” and “fix things”. Every year it is the same c-ap. Is it just for... — read more

The 6 month bridge is coming to end and all those that are below goal at the end of July will see the wrath of being put on a plan and shown the door without any severance. Good luck in surviving the next wave pressure from upper management

Because it generally makes sense to rent rather than own, especially when you are in it for the long haul! I don't really buy into the doom and gloom scenarios that run amok on this board but this is an obvious cash grab by Staples' new owners. LOL. — read more

Just came back from the texas meeting and while a lot of things were good, I can't help but think it's too little too late. While retail is still profitable the declining comps will make that unsustainable. I really hope the turnaround plan works but... — read more
there is no plan to turn around Staples. SP's plan is to make Staples attractive for an IPO so they can cash out the remaining skin and then some that they have in the game, which is about 600 million. It is purely unintentional if anyone working... — read more

Hey BB. Everyone in Livonia loved your visit last week. Not a thing that you have said while smiling at all of us has ever been true. The part about "write em up and fire em" was especially heartfelt. You and JP and running a sh## show. Does... — read more
As someone slightly younger than 50 I do fear for future career prospects, because yes I might have more experience, but how much is that experience worth to an employer? How often do they need that experience vs just straightforward day-to-day work... — read more
Staples screwed up big in that way. They kept people on in dying tech roles without any support to grow / learn, add skills and then when things changed, those people had nowhere to go. Of course people should be motivated to grow themselves too, but... — read more
Man things really have changed haven’t they? I used to work in the San Mateo California store three or four years ago. We did really well, we made between 7-8 million in sales every year. I was in a bind yesterday and I needed to buy toner for my... — read more

I just left Staples about a month ago. One of the best decisions I’ve made career wise. Staples has gone down as a place of employment since late 2015. The writing was on the wall then. I give Staples 3 or 4 years before they end up like Payless. If... — read more
