I understand the situation is bad, I understand some adjustments are needed, but what's the point in lying to us? That's what I don't understand. Why call us to say we can expect to be called back and then weeks later call us again to let us know we... — read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Staples Inc.
It has begun, as expected. Good luck to anyone impacted.
What are your thoughts about potential Staples Layoffs 2020? Any news or rumors?
Has anyone else noticed a trend of those being played off posting sappy love notes about how they loved the company and that it was a great place? Makes me think there is a stipulation in the severance that requires it or something. Anyone know what... — read more
Too bad that's all that's here most the time. Waste of time reading this c-ap.
Any update on furloughs? I’ve heard that some people who were partially furloughed have been brought back to 100%. Can anyone confirm? Any update on plans for bringing everyone back?
Is anyone hearing any details yet for USR? Hearing the action may take place next week. On furlough now and waiting to find out if my job will come back. I have been looking for a new position since furlough started but jobs are drying up fast with... — read more
I've been out here watching all the speculation and it only serves to make people more anxious. I've been on furlough since the beginning of April and my manager has been more that willing to answer my questions. I'd advise don't listen to rumors... — read more
I saw the Question and answers about Mass - does anyone know if you can collect severance and unemployment in NYS? I also know we will be receiving PTO pay next Friday. Same question - does that impact unemployment payment?
So after a few hours to digest my job loss today, I am relieved to not have the worry and uncertainty linger over me. Going into the job market isn’t appealing but it has to be better than remaining at Staples where the workload is unbearable with... — read more
Is anyone else hoping to be laid off by this money hungry hell hole? No? Just me? I'm sorry to everyone who has been laid off thus far but you're better off without this place.
If I’m laid off, will the company still pay me for my vacation and sick time that I never took? I still haven’t heard when/if I’m returning just asking in case I find out that I’m let go sometime soon.
Have there been any layoffs in retail? Either furloughed or non furloughed people?
If I haven’t heard anything yet about being laid off or when I’d be returning to work yet they are still posting ads for jobs on indeed.com for associates for other departments, why wouldn’t they contact the associates they haven’t brought back yet... — read more
Staples has been laying off people in all departments and they are still on hiring spree. How's that working out? especially in IT, they have let go of many people in past and they are still continuing to release new offers and new positions? are lot... — read more
In state of Massachusetts can you collect unemployment while receiving severance?
I find it interesting that there hasn’t been one article published or news about the recent layoffs. I know Staples is private but you cannot get any information or rumors on this company except here. Clearly Sycamore has an exit strategy coming up... — read more
I work at a Staples warehouse Fullfilment Center and I’ve been checking in with HR every couple weeks to find out what’s going on and I’m being told the same thing that I’m number four on the list for my department to be called back. Last I heard... — read more
Observing those jockeying for position is a study in corporate dysfunction. Results speak, not kissing of the bullocks.
About 75% of my office was let go over the past month, most on 6/17. Does anyone know how many total people were let go?
Usually, there are no layoffs on Fridays, but nothing would surprise me anymore.
Two Supply Chain RVP’s (PM and WB) were let go today. Furloughed associates will be notified Wednesday that their jobs are being eliminated entirely.
The messaging isn’t clear on who or what departments are being cut - maybe I missed an email? Too scared to ask my boss for details in case I get added to the list...any big changes?
Anyone have there 1-on-1 yet, with updated Real info? I know everyone is worried, but all these past posts are different. Yes there will prob be more layoffs, everyone saw that coming. I do wish you all the best and hope most of these rumors are just... — read more
Rule is you are notified early in the morning before the news gets out - HQ office impacted. Blessing in disguise for most of us. Severance can’t be denied, rules can’t change last minute.
I am sure that SP would love to have the money back for that event. It did light up the social media airwaves for three or four days, but mostly at the request of Staples leadership. To be fair, it has been the Squircle and the Worklife magazine... — read more
While thousands of associates are furloughed, Staples announced the promotion of Amit Karla to Chief SC officer. Most associates haven’t been paid their 2019 bonus, no one has received their merit increase but they promote at that level is not... — read more
Is this a companywide layoff?
Anxiety high tonight since my manager scheduled a meeting tomorrow. I’m in TA. Anyone else get a last minute meeting?
Going back to the office? Do you people have concerns about getting back into the office? Or is everyone more comfortable working at home?
Tomorrow is the big cut. What are you hearing?
We have only seen the beginning of a transformational period at Staples. In the weeks to come retail will most likely be reshaped, regions reduced by headcount and the general sales model changed. Rapid change now so the new teams can build a strong... — read more
For those of you lamenting the loss of Staples culture, the loss of respected leaders, the ongoing terminations, anxiety over the security of your job and the ever changing direction of the company, you need to do your homework and be realistic. ... — read more
Did STPLS receive PPP assistance? If they did, wouldn’t that limit their ability to layoff employees?
What’s happening with retail? Office Depot has announced that they’re closing 160 stores? Has staples announced any similar action?
There are signs that the next few weeks will be brutal.
Lets recap what has been going on with the Livonia sales office. Print & promo team let go, tech team let go, VP KM just let go, VP BP let go six months ago, IAM team furloughed and at best only 50% of them needed. Not much left. A few furniture... — read more
With states beginning to open - is there any word on when they are bringing us back?
SD posted today that the black community has faced much hardship in gaining equal opportunities and fair chances. And how Staples is great! But how many black people are on the senior leadership team? How many black VPs and directors are at... — read more
