There might be lawsuit at least in the IT area. White women in management, white women in technical jobs, and even just whites in general are the minority in IT. Many white women in management were let go and replaced by non-white males (mostly newly... read more

West Hazleton, PA the latest to close. /
I'm a Staples retail associate. Been with the company 11 years. I'm a key holder. Work at a profitable store. Can I get a straight and honest answer here without any b---s--- ? What about us ?? I like what I do for a living and I'm in my mid 50's... read more
Can somebody tell me what happened to the HR lady in Maitland? All management is acting like they dont know what happened... they claim they did not even know she was let go?? Sounds crazy to me
Now that the storm is over, anybody has any ideas what's next? Does anybody actually believe that these layoffs will solve anything? I'm pretty sure we will go back to same old, same old, before the brilliant idea of having some more layoffs rears... read more
i just find out there were 750 people laid off this week.. i can understand it but it feels horrible.
Email I got today: "Andy Rosen here with the Globe. I'm reporting on fiolettsk.rus at staples and trying to get a handle on what happened. I'm wondering if you might be willing to talk to me about your situation. I don't necessarily have to use your... read more
Guys, it's a sinking ship on fire. The company is trying to get out of this with as litlle damage as possible while remaining profitable. Nobody is "safe" as it's just the way business works. From a cost perspective, it makes sense for those at, or... read more
Just wondering if there will be anymore store closings in Q1, I work in the Sacramento CA region and I heard store 0593 San Ramon was on the chopping block. Is that confirmed and is there any more California locations to be worried about going... read more
Heard from a source today that they potentially laid off enough Framingham to move us all to one side of the building, then they’ll lease the other side. Anyone else hear this?
I guess -.org is doing a story on it now
Truly worried about my position reading all these comments, I was hoping to ask some questions of people who were let go what kind of severance was offered, how bad was the non-compete they're probably building into it? Also any high ranking Staples... read more
Hold up, Staples wants to build apartments in the parking lots? Say What? /
Somebody mentioned that more people got hit today, but I haven't heard anything. From what I understood, everybody who was supposed to be notified, was notified yesterday. Anybody else knows more about this? Am I wrong in feeling relieved that I... read more
A twitter quote from Shira. It was written all along. You really did a bang up job of destroying what you built since 1992. 25 Oct 2017 More “You have to destroy what you built.”- Shira Goodman on industry changes… and opportunities.
Heard that some more got hit today. Thought it might be a multi-day event.
Anyone know why WARN isn’t triggered for layoffs?
With all fiolettsk.rus, I was wondering if any store closings were announced? I haven't heard of any, and that makes little sense to me. I'm assuming that if the goal was to cut costs, eliminating some of the stores would be one of the first things the... read more
Do we know the final number of people who were laid off by Staples yesterday? I'm wondering because I just tried to find more info on what happened, and I found exactly zero articles on it. Is the number so small that it can be completely ignored?... read more
Looks like from regional VP to AP personnel being cut.
Here’s a quote from SG herself: “It must be nice to have a job for life” then adding “those days are over, this country can’t afford to do business as usual.” This says a lot.
Any word with SAL and AM’s in totality?
Thanks to everyone who provided accurate information- And to ask the trolls who are bitter and rude, karma will get you and SHE will be wearing RED!
I am glad to see IT gone. Who in their right mind would ever dump the UPS program (and the address book) at prime time?? What idiot authorized that? Who is in charge of the registers which don't work?? The computers which run slower than AOL dial up?... read more
If you were laid off today in MA you may be able to collect unemployment concurrently with your severance. Below is the language from MA.gov. "If you were required to sign what is known as a "release of claims" as a condition of receiving severance... read more
From reading posts, it seems many of you think you'll just bounce right back and have a job in no time. Look, I'm not trying to be a downer, but layoffs are going on everywhere, not just Staples. Doubt that? Spend some time reading "Latest Posts" on... read more
Any layoffs in Inventory Mangement Today??
I heard they got hit pretty hard! Which areas got hit? Due to the Technical folk losing their positions, did Management get axed as well? Global is the Gold Standard. MM was awesome!
...you are going to be ok. Yes layoffs pose a fair share of complications and disappointment but it's not personal and you will survive. I was laid off today, the 2nd time in 6 years. I knew it was coming and welcome the thought of never talking to... read more
My husband was laid off today after nearly two decades with the company. All of that time, effort, blood, sweat, and tears did not mean a thing, he was unceremoniously shown the door while kids who are his juniors by 30 years are still employed. How... read more
Long time employees, clerks, managers, and sales were laid off today 2018
The Stock Plummeted, company went private, no viable high profit businesses. No one prints anything anymore (C&P Center, Paper, Ink, shredders), no one writes anymore (Pens, paper again), Office machines/computers are disposable assets now (EasyTech... read more
No need to ever read this site again. The amount of misinformation shared here by people with nothing better to do than fear monger is staggering. SG fired - nope Maitland closed - nope AMs offshore - nope Age Discrimination - nope
Does anyone know where to access our W2s? I would ask our HR person, but she was let go as well.
There’s a lot more out there for those who work hard to get it. Staples is a failing company but that doesn’t have to define you. Trust me, the ones responsible for the failure will never take responsibility. So don’t let it weigh to heavy on you... read more
Anyone know if/how Quill has been affected? Specifics if possible, but no names please.
I got a skype meeting call for tomorrow but it was sent out by my manager...he says it to show us something blah blah blah... is this the call? I work in mid market.
