Thread regarding Office Depot Inc. layoffs

Black Thursday

Layoffs of all leadership (manager & above) of all adjacencies. They have determined that they need to get back to their core business, and you can expect another 300 to 400 people being cut in the next 7 to 10 business days.

Many of those people were just hired and will not qualify for any package.

Everyone is running scared and no one is sure of their job.

We are not allowed to contact customers and let them know we have been let go. AND if u got to stay, you still don't know what customers you are taking care of. Those that have stayed have no clue who was let go....it's never made public.

I have been a customer of business customer of Office Depot's since they merged with OfficeMax. I tried to e-mail my account manager and received a kick-back. It took me several hours to finally reach someone else and was told there had been some job shifts. I know now that he was let go.

This is an extremely unprofessional way to conduct business No one has contacted me to tell me who my new account manager is and I am very concerned now about my account. I think it is time to start reviewing my alternatives.

Glad I left a few years ago.... This place was toxic then and still seems to be that way.
