Great place to work. The people who work at staples are all friendly and like family to me. Have learned a lot about customer service and computers while working there. Expanded my knowledge.

Sometimes having to do busy work because it's not always a hopping place.

    Pros

    Great management
    Friendly employees
    Sales and customer service experience
    Technical experience

    Cons

    Didn't like corporate reactions to closing store, untrusting, treated us all like thieves
    Nice management bad leadership skills led to people not doing work.
    Expected to meet a sales goal that never was given out except on occasion.
    Several stores have been closed I would expect more in the next year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees need to be productive, use leadership skills to encourage them to do there job.

    Pros

    They give you a paycheck at the end of the week.

    Cons

    Pay is terrible, all of upper management is clueless and too focused on making money over the customer's satisfaction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support the products we do sell, for instance, Staples sells ipad cases al over the store, but no actual Ipads. We also sell the Nexus 7, but no screen protectors or cases. How does that make any sense? DM's calling everyday threating the jobs of everyone in the stores needs to stop. We all know you promised your boss your stores could sell X of Y, but when X is completely unrealistic and you know it is, Why promise it? Tech services are also a joke, everything is automated so we really don't fix computers at all, we just put them through the assembly line and hope it works. Hopefully you don't need parts because Staples usually charges two to three times the standard price on parts.
