    I worked at Staples part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    gained experience in the field, built on customer service skills, each day was a little different.

    Cons

    very pushy for getting sales and upselling, pay isn't very good for what you're doing, some of their policies are questionable

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sure upselling makes the company more money, but it's a daunting task for people who aren't hired as salesmen and are hired as technicians.

    I worked at Staples full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Benefits, pay and no boss around. You meet new people everyday and you're out and about doing a job at your pace as long as you're not milking it.

    Cons

    Work like a dog. You also have to worry about the extreme weather conditions but for the most part it's okay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None.
