    Pros

    Managers are great to work with. Our customers are basically nice to deal with. Flexible work schedules and are posted promptly weekly.

    Cons

    Staples are afraid to hire full time and have to pay for benefits. Wages are slightly above minimum wage and raises happen only once a year with small increases. If you are hoping working in the retail store will lead you a position in the corporate office forget it.

    Advice to Management

    Grow you employees with more career opportunities. Care about your employees as much as you care about your customers. Your employee bonus program is lame and needs to be re-invented. Think about how you can promote and retain your employees.

    I worked at Staples & Associates full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Slightly less high pressure than other computer retail sales jobs. Downtown Boston location had better hours due to 9-5 businesses being our primary customers.

    Cons

    Poor compensation. No bonus/reward structure for sales performance. No real employee discount.

    Advice to Management

    I'm not sure how much has changed since I left, but the sales pressure for good "numbers" was definitely starting to increase. I understand the need for good sales numbers, and attaching the right accessories/services to a sale. But when the employees get no added compensation from actually meeting goals, it makes for some very dissatisfied employees.

    I can't think of any.
