I have been working at Staples full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Staples has been a great company to work for with good pay and a good a good retail schedule. I have been given total autonomy in running my store and appreciate the trust and respect I have received from my District Manager

Cons

2012 was a tough year as company direction seemed to change daily. Morale also seems to be at an all time low.

    Pros

    You can learn a lot from Staples because there are many different business units and many opportunities to move around.

    Cons

    My pros being said, the opportunities are not always that easy to obtain. Staples used to pride itself on hiring from within, but with the current market, they are mostly hiring from outside and for less. It surely doesn't give a big vote of confidence to existing employees who would like to move up or at least laterally to learn something else. Bringing in people from outside also slows down operations in order to train instead of taking someone who already knows the business and has internal contacts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees, higher levels of management do not always have the best answer nor are always right. It's time to stop the "circling the wagons" mentality and LISTEN to employees. Their opinions and viewpoints matter just as much.
