Pros

- Flexible Hours
- Friendly Environment
- Helpful Management
- Overall Easy Job

Cons

- Low Wage (while they advertise "competitive" wage)
- Frequent Change in Management
- Only 10~15% discount for associates
- Required to Sell Protection Plan and Sign up Rewards Cards
- No incentives or Commission Pay
- No Real opportunity for Growth inside the Compay

Advice to Management

Have some incentives for Sales Associate to work harder to sell the protection plan, a little more than a good job. GM gets a bonus check based on store sales, why shouldn't the hard working associate get a cut ? And do not scrutinize an associate for not selling a PRP or Rewards sign ups, while there is nothing in it for us.

    Pros

    learning talking to new people every day moving up is pretty easy if your good at what you do overall its ok

    Cons

    pay rate sucks managers have there head up in the clouds and dont know how to treat employees so lets get with the program before you lose people you wish you didnt lose

    Advice to Management

    treat your techs like gold because at this point in time tech is the number one focus for staples so treat them like there your best friend

    Pros

    Work well with students and college student schedule. Great with transfering locations if you are looking to move to another store.

    Cons

    Starting wages have since decreased in years passed. Other than that not too many complants other than lack of decent raises.

    Advice to Management

    I have always had a good experience with leadership at staples during my time. Just work on better pay scale and raises.
