I worked at Staples part-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Lots of education available, as long as you make sure to ask for it, push for it, and take charge. Customer service oriented, and willing to reward and recognize those who reflect company values.
Great systems in place to keep the store organized and orderly.
Selling emphasis on creating a relationship with the customer through finding the right fit, not getting the most money possible from each sale.

Cons

Employee hours constantly fluctuate. Often asked to do things that are not within the scope of your position. Not enough emphasis on maintaining a standard appearance or baseline cleanliness of the store.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Truly value your employees. The better you treat them, the better they treat the customer, the better your profit. See them as real people, and treat them how you'd want to be treated. Put more effort into finding out who in your stores has what it really takes to be the next big thing, and do everything you can to encourage them.
