I have been working at Staples full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

I enjoyed working for Staples as a part-time job when I had more free time. It has a "small store" atmosphere that feels a lot more casual than other box stores I've worked. This is a great place to work at if you are currently in school and need a job on the side, or possibly even as a second job to bolster money from a "main" job.

Cons

Expects way more of a work load than they are willing to give out hours for. Compensation is not competitive for specialty jobs. Pay raises are now uniformly percentile based on your existing pay. Considering they start hiring at minimum wage frequently, this is not a good thing. Pay caps are low. There are few full-time positions to go around (two or three per store, generally, unless very high volume location) and any other people who deserve better hours or pay are basically out of luck.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop basing training & sales strategies around ideal scenarios and start basing it around how the stores are actually being run - often very understaffed.

    Pros

    OK pay and benefits
    Co-workers are generally fun to work with

    Cons

    Upper management is constantly breathing down your neck to hit specific numbers.
    Pressure sales environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more receptive to input from lower managers and help guide their career rather than just telling them what to do.
