    Pros

    Staples is an excellent company to work for, especially if you are trying to grow your career in management. They really care about developing future leaders for their sales organization. The company is also fun because they are open to trying new things.

    Cons

    The salary and compensation isn't the best. They pay on the lower scale.

    I worked at Staples part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    High energy environment, management constantly thinking of new intuitive ways to sell. Upper management always looking for ways for employees to make more money. Services are needed by every company. Fortune 100 company so very well known.

    Cons

    Management promises advancement, but many top associates stay in the role for years.

    Advice to Management

    Create other feasible roles after an employee who has been there for a long time to get into. More employee perks would be great along with cleaner breakroom.

    I worked at Staples (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Fast moving environment and opportunity to work with a diverse group of people.

    Cons

    Cost cutting and reduction in labor. Restructure eliminating jobs and adding more work for salaried managers to work more days and hours without additional compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Build a strong team that will work hard for nominal pay.

    I have been working at Staples full-time

    Pros

    The freedom this position provides is in my opinion is unparalleled, depending on your manager. The weekly pay along with your monthly commissions isn't a bad pay either. This position is a straight "hunter" role, meaning your objective is to bring on new business accounts. So your fate is entirely on your shoulders. And with their annual trip to Mexico for their top performers, Staples Advantage is one of the better companies to work for. A lot of room for growth as well.

    Cons

    Commission percentages are not the greatest. A lot of driving within your designated territory. Have to deal with a lot of rejection (need to have your 'mind set' correct at all times) and can be a bit draining if in the the hunter position too long.

    Advice to Management

    Hike up the salaries just a bit in the LA region. Besides that I feel Staples upper management team within the outside sales division is as strong as any in corporate in America.
