    Pros

    They have good benefits. They train well. Good up line communication. They keep up with training in both safety and other areas.

    Cons

    Promotional mobility is limited. Cross training is at a minimum. Their bonus program is difficult to understand and rarely came through.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the open communications with your employees.

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

    Pros

    Pay was ok, almost $35k starting out as an assistant manager, my particular team that worked for me

    Cons

    Basically everything, closed-minded leaders, false sense of customer centered service, all they care about is selling warranties that truly do not start until a year after the purchase (even though they advertise a 3 year warranty, the first year is always pushed to the manufacture, no help from Staples!), robotic overlords as superiors, poor work/life balance (retail is infamous for this), no respect (worked with the company for over 6 years and when I got a new GM that didn't like me because I am too personable, I got laid off). I progressed from the lowest position within a store to nearly the top within 2 years, but apparently my expertise did not matter. In April of this year, Staples conducted a reduction in force. Meaning they cannot manage there assets and over spent capital on just plain dumb investments with no research on their return on these investments. Signs of a failing and ignorant company lost in the past. Ron Sargent is just a suit and tie with eyeballs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get real and get with the times. Retail stores like Staples will not exist if they do not offer something new to their consumers. Why would you buy anything from Staples when you can get it cheaper online? This statement holds true because nothing you offer is of importance to people, if they do not absolutely need it, they will get it cheaper. Money makes the world go round, don't forget it.
