Pros

The staples I worked at was a great place to start my retail career. The managers were friendly and helpful. If I had any questions everything was explained clearly without ever making me feel stupid. I learnt a lot and I feel it helped me. There is a lot of positive reinforcement. When I did a good job they made sure I knew it.

Cons

The pay wasn't great but it was just an entry level position. There is a lot of pushing towards higher sales but I think that is the case in any corporate retail job.

    Pros

    I liked the people I worked with, I liked the flexible schedule and the reliability of the position. It was interesting working with the technological products and offering customer service was fun. Excellent benefits, health and dental and vision options even for part time associates.

    Cons

    Rigid payscale that was within a dollar of minimum wage. There werent alot of opportunities for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Be more attuned to the professional goals of your employees.
