Staples is a good entry level job. You can advance but all salaries are capped.

I worked at Staples full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

With the right managers and district manager you will do fine. Opportunity is available within in the store if you are comfortable with being cross trained in all areas of the store.

Cons

Minimum raise yearly based on a points system. At one time the raises were decent but now all positions are capped. Many full time associates are now capped. Many of these associates are long time employees and deserve higher salaries.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reward your employees. Most employees are working very hard but a lot of expectations are put on them. Customers do want to come in and shop however there are many destination shoppers and they want to cash out quickly. Too many things are offered at the register and it holds them up. Many of the destination shoppers are repeat customers and they don't want to hear the same thing every time they shop in the store.

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

    Pros

    decent hours (when they need you)
    management is understanding

    Cons

    pay is not the best (went from making $13.50 at a previous job to $8.15 doing essentially more work)
    as a tech, expect to do a lot of shelf stocking
    management lets certain employees skate by and do the minimum, while keeping hard on others to pick up the slack

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    pay your techs. There is no reason I should be making less than a cashier when i'm being trusted with customer information and am one of only two people in the building who knows how to do PC repair.
