    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.

    I worked at Staples part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    If you have experience it pays well. And even if you don't have the best experiences like with being an easy tech associate or tech, they will definitely help you with improving that knowledge base. The interview was a one on one with manager.

    Cons

    Some of the management like to pick favorites or get clouded with stress from the stuff that is going on. When I worked there, the organization of the extra stock wasn't the best but since I have visited the store it has definitely improved. You will only get paid to a certain amount on an hourly wage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more manager if the work load on the amount already there is too much for them in which return effects their unprofessional attitude towards the employees.
