    Pros

    Staples is a generally non- stressful job where as long as you make an effort no one will question your competence or work ethic. Management pushes you to sell products and warranties, but if you do well- they notice and praise you. If you are good at your job, you will feel valued. Promotion from within is also relatively easy. You can become a department head within a few months if you are good. After a year you can become an Assistant Manager and based on your performance eventually becoming a general (store) manager isn't hard either.

    Cons

    Pay is mediocre compared to other large retailers. Raises are not large.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work environment.

    Pros

    Good hours for retail, most stores are not open late and not busy on the weekends. One of the few places you can take time off at Christmas although you will work a LOT during September!

    Cons

    If you have morals and ethics, don't work at Staples. The prevailing philosophy is "It's never good enough" so no matter how hard you work or how well your store is doing they always expect more and most of the managers have to break rules in order to make their numbers. They encourage you to take advantage of vendors and sell warranties that the customers don't need.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach.
