Can be extremely stressful especially when goals are set for you to obtain.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Atlanta, GA

ProsLots of great people to work with, ability to learn new products, being a full time employee, you can just about set your own hours.

ConsToo many goals are set by upper management that are next to impossible to obtain. Always under the threat of write-ups, suspension or being fired if you do not meet these goals.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou have upper level managers that set goals and expectations that are extremely unrealistic, and if you don't meet them, you can AND will be replaced! In other words, if you do not meet the performance standards, you will be FIRED.

    I have been working at Staples


    Pros: I worked at Staples for a total of almost four years at three stores. Staples itself is a great place to grow skill sets in… Cons: The commision structure which changed three times in my years at Staples and was often confusing and redundent to new hires. Not a good incentive… Advice to Senior Management: A great job at training but you need to do a better job a reconizing your long term employees that dont want to move into… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
