While technically a crappy job I'm not paid enough for, it is a place I enjoy

Copy Center Associate (Current Employee) Boston, MA

ProsExtremely friendly, down to earth management
Interesting, challenging work
Lots of fun relationships with customers
It feels like my only true bosses are the customers
I have a lot of fun

ConsI am paid $8.65 an hour.
I am working at Staples.

Advice to Senior ManagementThis is advice to management above the general manager, who seems helpless and powerless against corporate:

Pay us more. A lot of people in the copy center really enjoy our jobs. I can't explain why I like my job in the copy center so much, but I do. It is an extremely professional job, and I am helping people with their projects, whatever they may be, every day. If I told any one of them how much I was paid, they would be utterly shocked and horrified, and would probably tell their friends, until it just became common knowledge that you are paying us extremely low wages, well below the cost of living, at least in Boston. And we really are very professional at what we do.

This is why stores have a very hard time hanging on the CPC associates; because despite the very positive atmosphere that somehow exists at Staples, you fail to show us the respect as the people running your entire show that we deserve. I love my job. But you really need to pay us more.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Staples Advantage

    Pros: The key to success of managing your own territory. Actually, whatever it takes to make you successful.… Cons: The biggest disadvantage there is no room for advancement regardless of what you have accomplished or how long you have been in your position.… Advice to Senior Management: Take a closer look at long term commissions on existing business and have two reps no more than 3 per state. … No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
