I worked at Staples full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Good environment, higher end customers, specialty retail, lots of usual customers.

Cons

Upper management (General Manager/District Managers) not helpful and usually at the mercy of their boss's yelling sessions. Made for unruly meetings, not useful promotions and very little customer appreciation.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be realistic in the goals you set for employees. They are making minimum wage, you're salary.

    I have been working at Staples part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Caring local Managerial Staff, available online training, clear sets of goals and objectives.

    Cons

    Corporate driven despite the attempt to focus on the local stores

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Visit your stores more frequently without notice or recognition when you are on-site. Particip.ate at local locations from time to time to better understand the employee perspective and demands you create

    I worked at Staples

    Pros

    Career development. I enjoyed the company when employees were given authority to make decisions on their own. Was a growth company that is in a rut right now.

    Cons

    The company fell into becoming a big company while forgetting what got them there.... the employees making decisions on their own without having to go to a committee review.
