Pros

A lot of good managers who are professional and helpful. Pay is about average. Easy commute if you live outside of Boston. Looks great on your resume.

Cons

Some office politics. You may feel like the only time a manager or director notices your work is when a mistake occurs. Some of the software was dated, especially for a F-500 company. Some co-workers get too comfortable in their current roles and lose ambition (Too many layoffs, not enough promotions) This can lead to attitude and laziness. Paychecks are issued only once per month (learn how to budget)

Advice to Management

Talk your employees about new opportunities and their goals. The standard performance review is too formal and won't help a manager properly gauge an employees strengths and weakneses.

    Pros

    Caring store managers. Associates and managers are always willing to help. Very good growth opportunities for associates willing to put in a lot of hard work and stay customer-focused.

    Cons

    Communication is sometimes challenging from the district managers/regional managers to store managers.

    Advice to Management

    Continue with the great job of keeping your store associates engaged! Keep regular conversations going not only about performance but about training and advancement opportunities.

    Pay is low, work isn't too bad. Depends on manager.

    Pros

    I've worked at Staples for about a year now, and at several stores. How fun the job is depends on management. Fast Paced, 10% discount, Associate Rewards points program, free food. (one store bought us chinese food occasionally. Worked very well with college schedule, could bounce between stores as I pleased.

    Cons

    Even though you're a tech associate, they don't really have stock people, so a major part of the job is moving freight and stocking shelves. Even if you are the resident tech, you are still expected to sell.

    Advice to Management

    Separate jobs. The guy working on the computers shouldn't be the guy unloading pallets. Hire people for that and you will get much higher quality tech associates.
