    I have been working at Staples

    Pros

    reasonable salary, good amount of time off and reasonable with requests for time off. I have to say that despite any gripes, I have to say I will be leaving this company a better, more capable person than I was when I joined it.

    Cons

    bad hours, will work 7-5 one day then 12-10 the next although i suppose thats retail. Corporate doesn't seem to have any idea about the actual operation of the stores and gives out way too much busy work and compliance tasks. Many of the company leaders have not worked in the stores in decades.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your people, get in the stores and see how they are actually run and what the daily process is like. Don't just visit once a year and believe that thats what a store looks and runs like. Also, pay your people better, you say you care so show it, these people are the ones on the front line making it happen everyday and raises are at times a joke, like not even the cost of living increase kind of joke(which would be fine if the company was suffering like some others, but its not). Corporate leaders need to do what they say, we get hyped up about great changes that never actually happen. do what you say you are going to do, and do the right thing by your people.

    I have been working at Staples

    Pros

    Good experience, flexible hours. It really helps you learn to be a jack of all trades, as you have to work in both sales and repairs.

    Cons

    The pay is relatively low compared to others companies with tech programs. As a easy tech personnel you are not focus only on repairing hardware. You have to also work on inventory, cashiering, everything else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer more pay to the easy tech employees. Also have specialize recruiters hire easy tech employees, as many are not competent in the work they do.
