I will have to say I am very angry about this entire situation within Staples. I have had the pleasure to work with many of the best account managers, CSC'S etc. I have a heavy heart knowing that most of the very best people and friends have been terminated or "laid off" to make the powers that be feel better. Leaving the far less competent individuals to use the bucket with no bottom to remove the water from the lifeboat.

Yes, big shakeup with SBA Itams Wed. Some were promoted to new created salary sales roles and some were actually demoted. but they all were told they’re safe and definitely returning full time July 13th. the itams not included on BB calls were not told they are safe or given a date to return. Those people will probably have to wait until GTM Is dismantled and the accounts are all reassigned to see how things shake out. Definitely stressful along with not getting unemployment. Staples please do one thing right for a change. Every new idea you think up with creating roles and departments have been nothing but epic fails. Just hope the new roles have a some protection clause bc if it follows true like all of the other “great” changes In the past, in 1 year time all these people will be shuffled around again or walked out the door bc the new role didn’t perform as expected.

I just got off the phone with my RSD. I was Furlough and they eliminated my position. In California they did give me a severance package of 4 weeks. I was an outside account manager. Tell you the truth I'm glad I was so stress with this job and being furlough was the first time I have been stress free. I put my trust in God and know that he has something better out there for me.

If your manager scheduled a call with you for tomorrow you will likely be let go.

unless I missed it, it looks like retail was the only one with the wording changed to include to severance for furloughed. Staples Inc nad and online do not include anything about no severance for furloughed.

I don't think they can legally change the policy while people are on furlough. Furloughed associates should be grandfathered into the policy that was in place when they put us on furlough. I'm sure there are legalities involved. They probably changed it for the future. Let's try to be optimistic.

THANK you for informing us that this is coming. Obvious it has to be true. Frankly management is terrible, unqualified most of them. Sandy open up your eyes! I will take the layoff, but it’s not fair to not pay out severance. We busted out asses for this company for years and now you want to send us off empty handed? That’s not fair at all. Farewell my friends. I liked the people and appreciate everyone posting her to inform us. Good luck to all of you.

Looks like severance policy was recently updated. "Associated placed on furlough...are ineligible for severance benefits under the plan"

Just received notice of major budget cuts (second round since April) in my department. Nothing was mentioned regarding headcount reduction, but it seems inevitable.

Almost everyone has been furloughed to some extent at least if you are in sales or account management. So, I am assuming you are saying the people who were furloughed 100% will be let go on Wednesday. What about those furloughed 50%? Does this include TAMS and KAMS? Most of those were furloughed 50% then this week they were told to work M-T 8-3. I have a call scheduled with my boss Wednesday. Not happy. Thank you Fauci. Also, to original poster, what about severance packages!??

Who is making the decisions on who stays and who goes? Respected, long term associates are being terminated, and inexperienced people are being kept or brought in from the outside. What is happening to Staples!?

Thanks for the heads up. I guess I’m out. Since SD has taken over it’s been horrible. They’re letting go, as usual, some very good/respectable people and keeping the arrogant, lying ones. I hate to say it, but good things await for me on the other side.
