    I worked at Staples

    Pros

    Managers were flexible with my class schedule for college and giving me summers off. Worked with some great people.

    Cons

    Low pay for associates who consistently out perform theirs peers. When I left the company I was replaced with two associates in the EasyTech department. Both of whom I know were paid more than I was. We had high department goals, but were giving services away for free. Doing free 40 free PC tune-ups which did nothing but eat up time from helping customers and actually working on computers that were making us money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in the EasyTech department and give the tools that they need to provide the same services as GeekSquad and local companies. Many times it would be cheaper to buy a new computer as it would be to fix the old computer.

    I have been working at Staples full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    flexible schedule for all employees needs, family comes first, if your willing to work, you will have a strong opportunity and build relationships with support from all the staff to succeed.

    Cons

    upper staples management at times will hire to cover and not take the early notice, or forthcoming of weaker employees who are there just to fill time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep the strong and get rid of people who do not want to work!!!
