I left staples last January, I worked for Staples only three weeks in 2017... Anyhow, after 2 years, it was time for me to move on... The final paycheck had an enclosed W2 - long story short, I've lost it - had to move twice, etc, etc... How do I... read more
Maitland Blvd rent is high. The original plan was to open that office in Texas - and that may have prevented what’s about to happen. There are some positions that will be asked to transfer to the closer brick and mortars (using that as their virtual... read more
To get it, what does my last day has to be - is it 02/03?
I’ve heard Daytona call center is pretty much done. What about Maitland? Skeleton crew? Or were all the rumors about the lease not being renewed true? I know at one point, there were renovations scheduled for the second floor and I believe they have... read more

Do you think Staples will pass along the tax cut bonuses they will be saving to employees? Maybe each get $1000 like all the other big companies.
Any updates on timing or who will be impacted?
Regina, Saskatchewan (Canada), Halifax, Nova Scotia (lower sackville in Canada) and Maitland, FL offices are on the chopping block. These teams include contract and mid-size account managers. I’ve heard that leases will be termed and employees to be... read more

Canada Retail fired their CEO Thursday and has been replaced by a Banking Exec / former Loblaw Exec (must be buddies with the Chairman). Can't trust Sycamore, "we will let you run your business the way it is", "we're hands off". BS
What area's are going to be effected by the latest cuts?
Are layoffs being completed using Skype?
Have any of you been assigned a Skype meeting with your manager or Sr. Managaer for next week that’s out of the norm??? If so, what’s your title...help some of us understand what we should be afraid of over the next 2 weeks... Last months layoffs... read more
When do people expect this to hit? I'm guessing next week or the week after. Probably a Wed. or Thurs. What do you all think?
I know it doesn’t matter now, but I think the fiasco of a final conversion with Coastwide Laboratories was a key component too, maybe a bigger piece than anyone is willing to admit. Staples conversion team tried to make the final conversion seamless... 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.
It's coming, buckle up and hold tight. That's all I can say at this time. Good Luck to all.
