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

Former Employee - Store Manager in Atlanta, GA

I worked at Staples full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

strong company, decent pay and benefits, and bonus plan

Cons

no 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 ManagementAdvice

Get 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.

    Cons

    DM'S, Gm's they think they know everything, therefore you have to do as they say otherwise you are not part of the team. some of them because the location of the store, they get a lot of customer they take it a it is because of them that the store does well.
