Current Employee - High Touch in Aurora, CO

I have been working at Staples full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Weekly check. Weekends off. That's a benefit.

Cons

Promote based on perception not skills. They look down on individuals and would rather utilize their skills instead of promoting. I have been with the company for 7 years and they promote newly hired individuals faster than those that have the knowledge and experience. They promote "a great place to work", when in fact it the worst place to work. The pay is horrible and the job is stressful for what you have to deal with on a consistent basis.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Develop employees. See the glass as half full and not half empty. Really make it a great place to work. Listen in round tables. That may help with the high turnover.

    Pros

    Products are good but prices are sometimes too high.

    Cons

    District Manager thought he knew everything. Could not give opinion on anything!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change upper management like DM or Staples will have many more people leaving. Corp. should listen to employees when there are concerns not just the DM.

    Under staffed, High work load, Under budgeted, Not enough hours to do training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to come to the stores and work a week and not as a extra. Don't tell anyone your coming, the bulk up. If you do not get frustrated then you have Rose colored glasses on..
