Staples is a very demanding company, with little work life balance

Store Manager (Former Employee)
Atlanta, GA

I worked at Staples full-time for more than 5 years

Prosstrong company, decent pay and benefits, and bonus plan

Consno training, lack of store payroll. Inconsistent messag in the from DM and RVP in the Atlanta market. Company using low cost operating model LCOM, to keep stores open. 12 to 14 people in a building with all the tasks, ads, conference calls, and the constant pressure to get tech sales and copy sales. Pay for associates is terrible. They want big sales from $ 7.25per hour associates.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet your head out of the sand and invest payroll in the stores. You cant operate to a profit. Put asociates in the store Stores need to have sku count reduced. Lots of dead inventory.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
