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

Pros

Could get away with a lot and not get fired.

Cons

Almost everything else SUCKS about this company. Avoid.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work on fixing your pathetic copy centers. Your people work too hard for nothing. Service is hard and it's the hardest job in the store. I've still got high blood pressure from working there.

    I have been working at Staples

    Pros

    Staples was a great place to work, at least the store I was in. Management was friendly and very constructive. You will gain tons of knowledge from the superiors and your coworkers.

    Cons

    The seasonal crowds can get annoying. BTS is a pain for tech. Just in general it's not a fun time.

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

    Pros

    The pay and benefits were ok. Things start out good, but the endless changes and confusion will get old very fast.

    Cons

    The managers are all Kool-aid drinking empty suites. They micro-manage everything by Salesforce.com. The pressure for sales is absolutely brutal. Take a job with this company only as a last resort.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell the company while it's still worth something.
