I worked at Staples part-time for less than a yearPros
Quiet environment, clean, professional, and it's simple. Their locations are easy to find. You'll get to learn how to use anti-theft locks.Cons
I didn't like how I had to have perfect knowledge of every product in the store upon being hired. Whether you're a cashier, or a sales associate, you have to be ready to answer any question. For the expertise they require, I could be taking those skills elsewhere, where minimum wage was a thing of the past. You're not on commission, but you're required to persuade customers into buying things they don't need. I mean, that's typical retail for you, but the products are very overpriced at Staples. The only people that would go to Staples for a computer, or a printer, or office supplies, are people that aren't smart enough to realize the cheaper alternatives, so it's your job to manipulate them into thinking they made a good choice by coming to Staples.
It's a dead store, you'll find yourself standing around with nothing to do, nobody to talk to, for hours straight. Use this time wisely to study the products harder than you would for a college exam. It's not more knowledge demanding than Best Buy, but keep in mind, the people that visit this store aren't too bright.
