Consistently inconsistent

Sales Associate (Former Employee)
South Lake Tahoe, CA

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

ProsHmm.. My store manager was fairly willing to work with our schedules, and was friendly.

ConsEverything else. Small salary, very limited job security, poor communication, and absolute confusion at all times. There are three managers who all seem to have the same power to tell you what to do, and will give conflicting tasks, which are expected to be completed at the same time.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake your people feel useful, not replaceable. When I was first hired there, the manager at the time had a terrible habit of telling staff he intended to replace them if they couldn't keep up. And keep up with what? Minimum wage? Please.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Contract division lost the eye of the tiger!

Staples Advantage Employee (Current Employee)
Nashville, TN

I have been working at Staples full-time for more than 8 years


Pros: can be a great career if your team is up… Cons: Staples bought Corporate Express which has a better handle on it's contract division and is now adapting the CE mentality to it's old… Advice to Senior Management: For mid-management only...running the company from the bottom up and not top down just adds more headaches… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
