Pros

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

Cons

Everything 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 Management

Make 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.

    Pros

    can be a great career if your team is up to speed in the industry

    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 Staples platform. Old Staples employees are to arrogant or close to retirement to make the initiative to learn the new industries and contracts.

    Advice to Management

    For mid-management only...running the company from the bottom up and not top down just adds more headaches and job cuts. as long as you still have your jobs I guess that is what ultimately matters.

  2. used to be a good company
