If you were let go today, can you provide what location and department? Along with any other details you’d like to add.
One of my team members just got canned.
Are there going to be tv stations or news reporters outside of Framingham office tomorrow?
We all know how difficult and stressful the last few years have been at Staples. I am part of one of the 3 offices, rumoured to be effected by upcoming layoffs. Plus, if there is any truth to layoffs starting tomorrow Jan 16th, then their are people... read more
Is this site truly anonymous? How do we know?
It seems that January 16 is pretty much a given for major Staples layoffs, at least according to posts here and rumors I've been hearing around the office. I'm mildly put a nervous wreck due to it. I'm nearing 50, and I was hoping to retire working... read more
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
I think unions are a good thing in a situation like what’s going on at Staples today. Private company buys Staples- no accountability to anyone- no visibility on decisions to anyone- no notice ( which is a violation of the Federal and state WARN acts... read more
If your over 45, your protected from age discrimination. California supreme court already ruled that firing due to salary is equivalent to age discrimination. So if your more qualified than other people kept, and over 45, start the lawsuits... read more
Although anything can happen where does it make ANY sense to close down the Maitland office? 90% of the Account Managers are located there. This is the only division thats profitable for the company. So ok go and close down the building and make... read more
If there are any Union reps reading this—- get going and start going after Staples. We need to band together here and stop getting pushed around and taken advantage of by Sycamore and Staples heartless executives. WHERE ARE THE UNION ORGANIZERS?????
Anyone have any details...I’ve only heard of SALs, Supply Chain, Merchandising, and Facilities being affected ... either your last day is before year end or before bonuses are paid...who else can confirm/deny or enlighten on this??? I swear if it’s... 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
Jan 8, 2018 A legal tussle that pitted Dollar Tree against an upstart discount chain has been settled in the Chesapeake-based retailer's favor. Dollar Express will pay Dollar Tree $35 million, according to a financial filing noting the Jan. 4... 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

Massive layoffs going on today with Staples/Sycamore. These corporations have no soul! Always before the holidays, but I’m sure the shareholders will have a full belly. This was posted last week, did I miss some layoffs take place? Not that I don't... 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.
the office is empty compared to how it was a year or two ago. Will Sycamore close the doors on LM soon?
