Pros

You get a steady paycheck and you don't have to actually do anything. If you step up and work promotions are readily given.

Cons

The pay is crap. The management is either lazy or up your butt. No one else ever does anything so if you decide to step up you're on your own. Customers are jerks and the place is depressing. Always dirty, always unorganized, and always gossiping.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get your stuff together and lay off of the employees that are actually trying. Focus on the lazy people just hiding in the break room.

    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.
