People give me a break. The company has not changed since I worked there years ago. After a few years of employment, I too was included in a 900 person layoff at the old headquarters. At that time, there was no rhyme or reason to who they let go other than managers choosing people they did not like. The people in upper level management remained.
What's funny is that some of the same toxic people who worked there when I was let go are still there to this day.
The company has extremely poor and inept leadership (trickles down) which is apparent by the number of toxic middle managers who remain employed there, some for 30 years. OD has historically over hired, then gone the washing machine of "oh sht, our quarterly numbers s—, no clue why... let's fire some people." Or, "Oh shT, why do store sales s—... let's fire some people..."
OD stores do not hit sales targets and these id–ts at corporate cannot figure it out. Instead they blame store employees. As if they have any control over store sales.
The sad reality is that OD was slow to pivot when Amazon came around and they did little to rethink their store presence, which is a relic of times past.
I buy all of my office supplies from Walmart.com or Amazon and have not stepped foot in an OD store in years.
Continually amazed that OD cannot get its sh*T together even after 20 years. Honestly.
Staples, Amazon and Walmart are eating your lunch. You should learn from them.
