Don't settle into staying at Staples when there are so many options right now. I know a lot of people are reluctant to leave since they don't know if their situation will improve in the long run, but honestly, how much worse can it get than here? We... — read more
I've been hearing talk about cuts in May. I don't think the source is too reliable so if somebody here knows more about it, that'd be great. If not, I'm going to take that the person is speaking out of his a-s and is just trying to get all of us... — read more
Everyone required to be back in office for at least 3 days a week starting May 2. Poor timing as fuel prices are at an all time high and employees will have to eat the cost of commuting. Will be the same as taking a pay cut. Wondering how many will... — read more

I see a few Staples love letters posting on LinkedIn. Must have been a recent riff. I get a kick out of the tired "looking forward to the next adventure"...was that before or after the company laid you off?
The longer you work at Staples the less recognized you get and the less rewarded you are.
Attrition is at al all time high. People leave, so our workload increases. Than some new people are hired and we have to teach them , while handling the increased workload at the same time. Then when the ( cheaper) newbies are thought of, they are... — read more
We know people hate working for staples. Let’s see where the worst place to work in the company is. Stay anonymous, but mention what group you work for, if you’re a current or past employee and an example of some of the craziness. EX- Supply Chain... — read more
Significant layoffs are already a common thing here. The past year and a half has been complete chaos and I doubt it’s over with big layoffs. Given all that, I wonder if it’s better to wait a little longer until the next round of layoffs and go... — read more
Everyone keeps saying that it is easy now to find greener pastures outside of Staples. And this is constantly being repeated but I personally know a few people who, after getting cut, cannot find a new job. I also know of people looking for other... — read more
Staples hasn't been a good place to work for years. The latest layoffs are just another proof of that. There are many companies that are hiring right now that DO offer better pay and benefits (as somebody asked in another thread), and a much better... — read more
I used to be very happy here, and now I feel ashamed to still be working here. Anyone else? This is a job only for high schoolers/ college students. All those who left are now paid much more. Those of us who are left here are experiencing daily... — read more
Plenty of employees are unhappy here, let's see what the main reasons are.
I've been here long enough to be used to having to do more for less. My issue is being given work I've never done before and being expected to know how to do it without any training. That's not how it works. Yet, every time I complain I'm the... — read more
I used to be scared at every slightest rumor about cuts. Now when I hear anything about cuts, the first thought is that it would bring me some kind of relief as well. Anyone else? I started looking for another job and it is encouraging that many... — read more
I hate when we have no idea what's going on and there's no official word on layoffs, whether they're done or not. Does anybody know how many people were affected yesterday and what was hit? Have there been any more cuts today? A little more... — read more
Good luck. They will be Wednesday 3/16.
RQD video of her putting a chair together on LinkedIn with, what looks to be, during business hours from her home tells you how far our great company has fallen. Next week’s video? How to turn all those bottles of hand sanitizer into cooking oil. — read more
If I could, I would've quit this place as soon as I found out that the new hire was paid more than me. I hope to find something new soon and leave because I don't want to work in a company that humiliates its employees like that. I’m sorry to see... — read more
Since so many are quitting, I'm guessing this is a great time to find a new job? Is this true? How long is it taking people on average to find a new position? And I mean a position that pays better and has better benefits, there's no reason to leave... — read more
What happened today? I heard only good things about their strong performance.

Layoff meetings coming this Thursday and Friday. Can we get more info on this?
I was unhappy working for Staples for a multitude of reasons and relieved when I was severed recently. Would love to hear reasons why others were unhappy…. Pay? Your Manager? Benefits? What made people so unhappy at Staples that folks like myself... — read more

I joined Staples many years ago to be part of an organization that was focused on being first in class, a company that was large, but felt small, one whose management was focused on supporting their teams and were servant leaders. What do we... — read more
I see so many folks who get tired of working here - with good reason - leave for another retail company. Do they not realize it's only a matter of time before their new company is in the same situation we are now? Retail is dying. The only jobs... — read more
The multi-million feel good show in Orlando, immature management who would not speak-up saying GTM would bury the company through destroyed client relationships. What holiday will Sycamore destroy next for the good people at Staples?
Ive been an associate for 4 years in the inside sales org. I have seen really good leadership and have seen terrible. It is a popularity contest as to who gets promoted and now the King of surveys sits at the top of the throne. I use to have regular... — read more
Do we really think Staples Canada is ready for an IPO this year? The free shipping for staples.ca is bleeding red ink and the Professional division is also struggling along. How can they restore this business to profitability?
Recently looked through some old files and saw the names of all of the competent leaders who have left marketing. Then I join all hands to hear the new leader humbly describe herself as “super smart” and “sharp elbowed” as her reasons for getting the... — read more
What are you waiting for, people? The writing on the wall can't be clearer. Take advantage of the current job market. Those who claim that there are no jobs are either trolling or too lazy to search properly. There will never be a better moment for... — read more
Every year, Staples provides gift cards (maybe $10 or $20 to various retailers) in the holiday card that they distribute. This year, the company policy is that there not be gift cards distributed and no company sponsored holiday meals. Come to think... — read more
I'll bet that New Year's resolution for most of the employees of this ridiculous company is to find a new job in 2022..
