No one left working at Depot is required to stay. Those expressing sympathy for those left on the sinking ship can turn their attention to job searching.

Ah. Saturday evening and the severance package- promised to us- and so important to the preservation of my family never arrived. Office despot cannot even do that right. I want to see a .50 stick price and the mis-leadership team strung up. Sad,pathetic and incompetent should not be allowed to run a company. Everyone jump while you still have respectable to put on your resume.

Mr CEO is a clown. When will he ever realize that his speeches and town halls should focus on much more than shareholders and the stock. He literally couldn't give a C-ap about OD employees, and has proved this in every single Town Hall he has held. CLOWN.

I feel terrible for my friends that are still on that sinking ship. So many talented people lost because that POS couldn’t deliver the results. My guess is that these are the results he has been after all along. With his 8 million dollar salary. Narcissistic prick, and tried to fool everyone on the call this morning, JOKE! My heart goes out to all who were affected and all who are still there.

Yes, the layoff's have begun at Corporate. What is it going to take for these high paid exec's to realize outsourcing to India Is not the way to go! They would have done better to rebrand as a USA company. Who wants to talk to someone over seas? Really you get what you pay for. Ever since the old CEO Odland started outsourcing the stock has never emerged. Almost under $2 a share. What a shame!

Sure you got your new team- minus many skilled, tenured, dedicated associates you somehow deemed not worthy. Ps. You have screwed with trying to create your winning team already- your formula is not working. Good luck with your C team.
