Current Employee - Assistant Manager in Seattle, WA

I have been working at Staples full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Ability to grow within the company. Started as a PT OS associate, then FT Furniture, then back to OS. Got promoted to OS specialist. Transferred to Easy Tech Expert and shortly after getting put in the Management Training program. Lastly getting promoted to Assistant manager. The opportunity is there if you have the drive to do well at your job

Cons

Make sure that the person who is training you knows what their doing. Otherwise, this can sidetrack your development severly.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Train better.

    Pros

    friendly associates AND GOOD LOCATIONS

    Cons

    work hard for the little bit of money they pay you, fight year after year after year to get a raise. unless you kiss all the right butt. i work for a bi-polar GM. PRESSURED to sell many items to customers at check out. they make us push warranties and give a bunch of crap if your are not selling them, even when you really try to do so it is never good enough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop worrying so much about your big bonus from the csat scores and the asat scores. dont you think your associates talk to each other and purposely try to ruin these bonuses for you and the DM
