    I worked at Staples full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The best reasons would be growth potential. Interaction with different guest daily. Developing and training associates. Competitive sales environment. Excellent benefits including stock options.

    Cons

    Poor replenishment of merchandise. Unrealistic payroll budgets during peak times. Need to update CBT training. Need to do better at offering cross training programs.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management should be more visible during non peak times. They should be aware of the development of all associates. If they have not been promoted from within, they should go through a training process that is geared towards the success of the company.

    I worked at Staples full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The pay is good, the people you work with are cool. I'm talking about their warehouse jobs.

    Cons

    Overtime may be required, hard work is required. The money is there, but the schedule can be demanding. Talk to your supervisor about what you're getting into.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to hold it down. Most of you guys are pretty decent people. And don't get cocky, changes do come and the snakes do end up with nothing.
