Advice to ManagementAdvice

This 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.

    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 (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.
