>� Ok, I am sick and tired of looking on this board and hearing employees bitch and complain. Am I 100% happy with this company? No, but no one is completely happy with their employer. The Company is still making plenty of money and employing 49000+ people. Do we have issues we need to work through? Definitely. So instead of sitting here bitching and complaining, go get some work done and fix the problems. <
We are obviously not in the position to do something otherwise we would. The corporate office does not listen to their employees, even though we may know more about whats going on than they do in their insular little world. All we can do is get the word out about the problems and hope the shareholders take some action because they hold the power..................
You know SGolden, that is exactly what I was looking for. Seriously, thanks for some intelligent feedback.
I used to work in a branch a now bankrupt retailer. (Long time ago though:) I know what you are saying. Coming on here isn't going to help. Stock holders are greedy bast$##. They only care about increasing their net worth.
I know what you're saying about stockholders being greedy, but it depends if they are in it for the short term or long term. I want to hold onto my shares because I have hopes of the stock going back to its heyday of 30s and 40s. I don't think it will happen if Staples continues on its current path and I had some hope that going on here would help raise the shareholders knowledge of what is going on inside the corporation.
Sadly enough not only does the corporate office not listen to its GMs but the GMs are actually afraid to even mention any improvements to the DM. How sad is that where the corporate laison doesn't want to even listen to ideas(The DMs are probably afraid it will make them look bad because they didn't come up with the ideas). The GMs would never go above the DM and complain directly to Corporate because the DM would get pissed and the DM is the direct boss over the GM. This is one of the reasons I think Staples should get rid of DMs. They are a hindrance not a help. ................................
Amen to that. With the possible exception of sgolden, all of you complainers need to find another career opportunity outside Staples. But you know what? You won't because no company will hire someone with a loser attitude.
