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

Pros

There was really not a single thing about this job that was positive save for the co-workers

Cons

Being spoken to like a child, explicit instructed how to clean a floor with a broom, as well as the purpose

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire better under-management.

    I have been working at Staples full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    3 manager system allows for divide and conquer approach to tasks, it also allows for a management rotation for scheduling, if your general manger actually wants to follow company policy

    Cons

    company has unreal expectations on new program roll outs, and they seem to have no checks and balances of the store general managers, so they are allowed to get away with never helping out in the store but then take all the glory for the hard work of those that actually succeeded. Also the district managers lie to you to get what they want and then deny they ever said anythings, I've been witness to this happening several times in the last 4 years

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    beware of anything you are promised or told you are inline for a promotion, its probably a lie to get you do do something extra for them.

    Doesn't Recommend
