    I have been working at Staples

    Pros

    Nice cafeteria, good food
    Dry Cleaning on site
    Good Pay
    Nice Building

    Cons

    Very little diversity at corporate office. I experience discrimination often.
    People are not friendly. Everyone walks with their heads down. Most people are rude and arrogant.
    Associates are expected to work very late hours and some weekends. The workload is unreasonable for a single person.
    Only 3 sick days.
    Only 10 vacation days to start.
    Very poor benefits. Health Insurance barely covers.
    Very cheap. I don't even have a stapler or the proper office supplies and we sell office supplies!! pathetic!
    I was told on my first week of employment to not expect any promotions or raises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training and attention to core competencies need to improve. Hire more people. How can you expect people to work such late hours without any promise of a promotion or raise?

    I worked at Staples

    Pros

    Large company with name recognition
    Senior management has been in place and seems to know what they are doing to keep the company profitable

    Cons

    Middle management does not know how to lead and are severely lacking in people skills
    Beware the new boss who comes into a department from within, it is time for heads to roll
    More concerned about stock price and not about the employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe you should take a real hard look at what made Staples a great place to work a while ago, it was the people not the process. You would not be experiencing the tremendous turnover you are if middle management had people skills and weren't worried about managing for their own jobs. Most of them are just trying to CTA.
