Pros

They are flexible with scheduling.

Cons

Customers are angered easily when we don't have the product they are looking for.
When management finds a position they like you in, there is no getting out of it or moving up.
They only pay slightly above minimum wage.

    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.

    Staples can be a very frustrating environment to work in, as a tech, mainly because of the lack of support from staff."
