I worked at Staples full-time for more than a year

Pros

Best benefits package I have ever seen

Cons

Too many metrics and always changing

Advice to ManagementAdvice

GM's need to stop hiding in their office all day long and be more on the floor to lead by example. Stop being so lazy.

    I have been working at Staples part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Pros are obviously the flexible hours and most of the people I work with.

    Cons

    if customers do not buy ESP (extended service plans) we as techs get yelled at. Just recently our Sales Manager made the techs sign a contract that stated if we don't almost constatly make 7% then we will get fired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get off your but, and do more sales, also encourage the rest of the associates (OS, front end, and CPC) to sell plans as well, STOP breathing down the Tech's necks.... you want us to do our job, then back off and let us do it, don't badger us about not making 7%, every single week when we have not had that many sales, and if you see for yourself that the customer does not want to buy.

    I have been working at Staples part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Love the enviroment
    People are awesome
    Best boss i've ever had
    Job itself is just awesome

    Cons

    Times are bad
    Schedules are based on last weeks sales so if sales are bad so are your hours

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe have a more set hour, rather than have the hours based of sales, because when it comes to paying bills for me I never have enough money.
