500 Staples Drive just went on the Market this week??? So much for honest and transparent Communication to the dedicated work force! We are not going to slash associates for saving’s, really then what’s happening! When are we going to wake up people, it’s time to mobilize in a productive way (maybe Union)... If we don’t stick together we will lose it all…The top gets there buyouts untouched and the heart and soul employees of the company get reduced to three week severance package! That’s not just business folk, that’s scandalous!!!

how much "talent" do you think Staples has taken from Amazon?
why couldn't Staples find talent in Boston?
it's the #4 area for tech employment.
because it's not an attractive company. coming to Seattle was a bad company fleeing the geo-area that they've poisoned, only to poison the new area, too.
you have to decide in life if you're about truth or lies. FM and John are yes men, buzz word bullcrap.
you're getting exactly what you deserve.
i am a baddass mf, im the real deal and they were both too ignorant to grasp that.
because they're about lies.
not about me, haha.
Dude. im making 30% more than staples wanted to pay.
and frankly, i could make 20% over that if i could tolerate morons.
its not worth the annoyance.
you don't seem to understand.
Staples has destroyed its reputation in seattle.
it's about me.
it's about you.
there is a limit to how many lies you can tell.
What is the source of the news on Staples wanting to sell retail?
"Im easily qualified but I won't bother."
Oh please please please will you apply? Whatever will we do without you? I guess we'll have to settle for the thousands of other people in the area who are qualified. Our loss I guess.
Ron Sargent once said he wanted to make Staples a “ brand for the next 100 years “
Feels more like 100 weeks now .
For those of you who struggle with math, that is a little less than 2 years .
Based on articles I have read, he got paid a lot of money to say clever things like that.
A quote from the job post: "Making complex machine learning and data models run so fast that they are indistinguishable from magic will become your day job."
Your night job, however, will be looking for a new day job since magic is nothing more than sleight of hand and illusion...much like the current Staples business model and management style.

All of you need to learn that when you reward lies, you get more lies. And when you punish skill in favor of a-- covering cronies, you GET LESS SKILL.
how much can they sell headquarters for?
What about the naming rights to the Staples Center, which are supposedly for life? How much is that costing? From this article you can see Enron used to be a presence, but Enron is dead. So how much could Staples get to dump the naming rights?
Nothing validated in Framingham Commercial Real Estate or the Boston Globe as of yet.
at aetna, i got a 3ft by 2ft plank as a workspace, I felt like a telemarketer surrounded by chattering indians on headsets. i thought aetna was bad but staples was a close second, probably pulling into 1st (worst) place for you survivors.
Sounds like a leaseback arrangement.
Where is the link for this omg news?
Link or GTFO!
