I have been working at Staples part-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Good place to work. I worked there in the EasyTech department. Good place to gain work experience as a teenager.

Cons

For how hard they push the extended warranties, the sales associates deserve commission.

    It is a revolving door for manual labor. Logical contributions need not apply.

    Pros

    The benefits package is reasonable. Some of the crew can actually train properly. Payout every week is nice.

    Inconsistent management direction and illogical focus on "performance (wrong)" metrics

    I have been working at Staples part-time (more than an 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.
