As a 10 year veteran of Staples, I know my time is nigh. The salary increases I earned over those years is no longer supportable as sales continue to decline and the work for myself and my "onshore" team is drying up as we train "offshore" and... read more
the office is empty compared to how it was a year or two ago. Will Sycamore close the doors on LM soon?
It's coming, buckle up and hold tight. That's all I can say at this time. Good Luck to all.
If you are a long term employee, look out! They are going to show you the door. At a corporate meeting recently, a question was asked oh the Audience.... “how many people have worked for the company 15 or more years”? With a big response from the... read more

Stop lying. stop lying to yourself. stop lying to your employees. just stop. you know, deep in your heart, that you're engaged in a web of lies. stop lying.
Basically, FM put a bunch of entry to mid-level people into a blender, tossed in some IT buzzwords, hit the "ON" button and hoped a real e-commerce system would pop out. That's kind of like throwing a lot of car parts, gas and oil into a cement mixer... read more
Heard that FM is joining JCREW in NY
Please be prepared because these cuts will continue. The company needs to cut expenses now that it is property of Sycamore (a private equity firm). Staples will be prepped and made to appear more attractive for obvious reasons. As all have been... read more

Oh Ronald the decisions you continue to make, as if no one can see through your hollow lies. You are not taking your "raise" but continue to collect each bonus. One bonus in particular comes to mind...a 15 million and change bonus in such a time the... read more

Restructuring happening in business advantage. layoffs across the board yesterday. Good luck to those that remain... definitely bound to lose some clients.
Heard there was a new round of corp layoffs. Could be in both Framingham and Lincolnshire. Can anyone confirm?
Finally managed to leave Staples for greener pastures two weeks ago. I got sick and tired of the way management was treating us and the unreasonable expectations they put on us. How hard is it to understand that "one model fits all" can't work across... read more
FM has added over a dozen friends in various leadership roles since this January. Want to honestly understand what innovation or improvements they have brought into SDS
This is very possible..never underestimate.
Closed our store in January 2017,. I asked if it was poor sales? Said no, but refused to give reason for store closure!
What’s the status on furn ops?? Are they going 3rd party elimination altogether?? Anyone have any information
They were announced yesterday. Down 15%. Yes, you read that correctly. Same store sales were down that much. Now as a retail management professional, ask yourself WHY? This is where I'll help out... it's because they don't offer their customer... read more
Has anybody managed to work their way up at Staples? It seems to be mission impossible unless you know (or are related to) somebody in the upper management. We recently lost a guy we shouldn't have lost because he was passed over for a promotion for... read more

Did anyone have a s-xual harassment issue at Staples? I did and went to HR anonymously. They figured it out anyway and I was let go in a mass lay off last year. I know of others.
Is this going to affect the Bangor location? The other Bangor store closed 3 YEARS ago, I hope thus one stays open or I'm out of a job. A job that I LOVE.
Everyone, realize that HR never has you in their best interest. They are only there to serve the interests of the company and its agenda and after that, they’ll probably be let go too. If you want to talk about s-xual harassment, look no further than... read more

How long does anyone think before all stores close in the U.S?
Do you maybe have a list of stores that will be closed by Staples in 2017. I am interested in closures in: California (Staples) Texas New York Florida If you have a comprehensive list with all states, that'd be great.
It is no secret that all the "performance shares" and other various "C-level" shares are vesting on 3/16 /2018 [6 months post close] Will we see Shir-rah-rah run away with the $14 million truckload? How about the others?
