    Staples is a great place to work, in a fun environment, with a great team!

    Cashier (Former Employee) Canton, GA

    ProsThis was my summer job as a college student, and they worked with my summer schedule, and allowed me to make my own hours so I could take vacations. Staples was very accommodating. The people I worked with were great and the tone management set for everyone was relaxed. We got our work done but had a lot of fun doing the work.

    ConsDuring Back-to-School events, I felt the overnights were unnecessarily long and pointless. If they had created a very specific schedule or spreadsheet of each person's duties the night would have been shorter and things would have gotten done faster.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more organized during back-to-school events, also know the hours of operation of most restaurants and get food ordered before everything closes for the employees staying for overnight organization of BTS

    Great time

    Sales Associate (Former Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsEnjoyed Co workers, Good pay, High expectations of everyone who works there, Flexible hours, Management is easy to get along with

    ConsMy only con was management turnover rate. This was not a Staples issue but rather an issue with the store itself. Some people were hired who shouldn't have been but others were very competent and, unfortunately, promoted or offered jobs with other stores within the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNo advice necessary.
