    Sales Manager in it for the performance and out of it for the lack of support

    Current Employee - Sales and Service Manager in Phoenix, AZ
    Current Employee - Sales and Service Manager in Phoenix, AZ

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

    Pros

    Early advancement, transfer opportunity (breadth of company), fun associates and peers

    Cons

    Squeezing blood from turnips, poor company direction, lack of overall support from top-down, company (or regional/divisional management) drives mandatory performances with no plan or active role in facilitation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop, slow-down -- realize that your yearly ASAT (associate satisfaction) surveys are skewed because we've all been made to feel like they reflect on us as management as opposed to you as corporate leaders and decision makers. I don't trust your direction for the company - I support the closing of under-performing stores but I don't understand some of the budgeting for the year and it has not been broken down with any quality.

    I have been working at Staples full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Staples has always had its eye on the customers needs first. No matter what department you are working in, there is always something to do. And the best part is, there is pretty much always room to move up in the company.

    Cons

    It is an office supply store, so during back to school, the place is hectic! The day seems to drag on and on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire extra people during the busy seasons.
