    I worked at Staples part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Staples has a broad selection of office supplies, printer cartridges and technology used in offices. You can find furniture, computers, telephones and the basics to set up an office in a one-stop shop. The customers are knowledgeable and interesting to find solutions for.

    Cons

    High turnover with limited hours and limited wages. There's never a dull moment when you try to find out what's really going on. Limited responsibility from start to finish on a job means that the customer doesn't know who is responsible for what.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Coordinate your business processes so there's less "dropping the ball."

    I worked at Staples full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Average salary for college grad

    Cons

    Lack of diversity in executive mgmt, just look at the website. Up north bully tactics. No specific schedule for associates in fulfillment centers. Consistent lie that staples is a great place to work, more like a NJ sweatshop. Only four mgrs, in the entire warehouse had degrees, rather promote Hs dropouts, than hire competent grads. All they cared about were numbers and always wanted sups to terminate or do dirty work for incompetent uneducated ops mgrs. can completely understand why company was started by Bain Capital. Sleazy upper mgmt.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Retire, go to college, and stop faking it by reading business magazines
