Thread regarding Office Depot layoffs

Q2 upcoming results = more layoffs?

So I was fortunate to make it on first round, now the rumors are more to come after disastrous Q2 upcoming results. What have you heard? (HQ corporate)

I was laid off in May 2019. At first, was really really sad & still sad about missing great co-workers. However, it was a BLESSING in disguise. I am once again - employed and have no regrets. The environment at Corporate is the most TOXIC I’ve experienced in my 20 years as a retail professional. Lies, favoritism, dirty politics- it’s not even worth worrying about. Leadership (and HR) are completely ruthless and unethical. If you have felt the same - there are jobs outside of OD. I encourage you to begin your job search. Use Linked and NETWORK. The position I currently work in was not advertised anywhere - it came thru a referral. Best of luck to everyone!

There really is no reason to stay with this company...what everyone has been feeling for a few years now is "not normal"

Its over! If you have a light at the end of your tunnel push through. Leave this company, thats I truly my thought now i could get somewhere way better I mean 9 years is enough of seeing this company reintroduce itself time and time again with no benefit for the employees who btw keep this damn place afloat as much as they can. two weeks OUT!

Store level management here. Our entire district is performing horribly. Right now our sales are around 3k and 115 transactions @ 3p. This has become the norm. I can say that we do our best to promote workonomy, but our clients are buying into it enough. There are many stores that are trying, but we can’t meet the standard. Really wish Depot would have rolled this out 10+ years ago, that might have saved them.

Last week of July first of august comment . We are talking about how many FTE impacted ???? at corporate????? Reliable source?

Corporate is mostly done with reductions. Look at field sales again to take a hit in the adjacency teams with increased training of general line on these categories along with support from rep groups.

Agreed...get out asap...the job market is good and there is little incentive to stay and polish the deck of the titanic while it goes down....there are companies that value employees and provide a great working environment ... experience those companies and then wonder why you didnt leave ODP earlier in comparison
