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

Pros

Great atmosphere, managers point out small errors, explain how and why to avoid them. As an easytech, there are lapses of time with no customers at all

Cons

A lot of getting big and heavy box from top shelves (printers, shredders, chairs, etc). managers are picky about how you pitch the protection plans and such.

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

    Pros

    Building work history. Developing people skills.

    Cons

    Terrible pay. Expect to make anywhere from $8-10 an hour. Pay not evenly remotely commensurate with experience or skill set. Glorified used car salesmen. Your primary job responsibility is to sell ESP (Extended Service Plans), and Attachments. Retail environment with very little experience gained from fixing computers. If you're attempting to learn anything by working with Staples EasyTech forget it. Everything I've learned about computers has been self taught, if you're working with computers at Staples that means you're plugging in USB flash drive diagnostic software or running a virus scan / updating windows. There is really no experience gained from troubleshooting computers as the software and diagnostic systems do all the work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I understand that Staples is a retail store, but encourage employees to succeed by positive reinforcement and lead by example.
