Tier 4, cut hours, tasks impossible to complete. We barely block anymore. They just work us to exhaustion with out the hope of actually being good. Poor thing over at copy center had 5 people waiting with no time allotted to actually do any... read more
Attention all Drivers who are losing jobs. Those retention bonus check to stay till the end is hardly anything when they combine it with your first check. I think a better bonus would have been to shove my handcart straight up CEO Ron Sargent ass.
I'm sure staples can expect many lawsuits from this round of layoffs as I hear employees are already consulting attorneys to go over any options that they may have in such a situation, even if there are no lawsuits long term employees will be leaving... read more
does anyone know if they can fire you if you go out on stress leave. Do you get disability if you go? My doctor wants to take me out.
Staffing vs. customer traffic is out of line at every tier. Framingham just does not get it. Bitch and moan and threaten jobs because of bad CSATs, bitch and moan and threaten over store conditions, bitch and moan and threaten over staying within... read more
Just been transferred to a tier 4 store about a month ago. Now, just got solid conformation that my store will be closing by the end of the first quarter. My thought would be, that would've the same for other tier 4 stores. There just isn't enough... read more
Staples is trying to eliminate these positions. The higher pay (compared to Team Supervisors) and the mandated 5 hrs of OT a week have painted a target on these positions. It used to be easy/common for DMs/GMs to tell AMs "don't leave until XXX is... read more
I believe it is scheduled for Friday 3/6. Anyone want to guess if bonuses will be mentioned if EPS is not met?
So our store was cut to only 268 associate hours a week. I suspect many more of you are in the same boat. So is this just Staples intentionally pushing these stores to closure? Certainly looks to me like they are setting us to fail.
It's amazing to see that Amazon is testing out delivering its own packages to have better control over the shopping experience. But Staples is getting out of this when its so clear having your own fleet deliver your products is what the consumer... read more
Anyone have any guesses on how long before Staples begins the wholesale slaughter of all the tier 4 stores?
They should get rid of the BLACK BELTS. Waste of time and our money. What a joke nobody's telling us how to do our job.
Curious if they somehow made EPS or if Ron will take a bonus regardless.
On the retail end, I was talking with a store manager at one of the Staples stores I deliver product to. The manager said job openings had been posted since Thanksgiving 2014, and not one single applicant has applied. I asked what the hours/pay was... read more
Just heard the Orlando SDO closing date has been pushed up from late June to the end of March. Nice! Way to go!! Suppose it'll only be a matter of time before the other SDOs who were told two weeks ago that they would have work until the end of June... read more
One thing I've learned at Staples is.. If your really good at what you do.. Which I am.. You are punished.. Cause what happens is.. they give you more stops and products.. while the slower get minimal stops.. As we all know.. It's the bottom line... read more

I have worked for all three companies now. Two of them I have been in the management seat. OM was a good company, Staples was terrible, and OD was by far the best. Now that OD is having "hostile takeover" by Staples things will only get worse. The... read more
Has anyone else who quit this year received their W2? I have not... just curious... I used to be able to pull it online when I worked there... can I still do that?
Cut our store hours from 475 to 280. Just went to level 4 store. Has anyone encounters this.
Now that all the drivers have received their notices what will be the expectations daily for productivity? And dose anyone believe they will go on making that extra effort to compleat their routes.
Thinking of moving to Florida.Does anybody know the name of the couriour that took over for us down there?Keeping all options open
Just curious. I was there for 12 years. I left 2 years ago because I couldn't take it any more. What keeps you at Staples. I'm not trying to be a smart ass. I just want to know.
