    Competitive benefit package. The company changed ownership in late 2017. I don't know if this will impact the benefit offering going forward. Several Healthcare options. Pretty standard for large employers. But, the company has made an effort to be flexible and provide a variety of options. HSA option does provide "healthy living" opportunities to earn deposits (webinars, activities, etc). Also provides options for LTD, Vision, Dental, Life, etc. Standard 401k offering. Company match of 50% up to the first 6% of salary contributions. Introduced a Roth option. Stock selections inside the 401k are weak. Seem to drive everyone to managed / target date funds. Few alternative selections for those who want to manage their own dollars. Company also will reimburse up to $300 per year for gym memberships or the purchase of workout equipment. Discounts for purchases at Retail locations. Because the Healthcare market has been impacted negatively by govt action, the benefit package seems to change every year. The company has done a good job of limiting increases to premiums.

    The best part of the benefit package at Staples was their Paid Time Off Policy, it combined sick and vacation days into one bucket.

    Great healthcare as .a single woman. Vacation policy is rigid and limited to 2-3 weeks, depending on how long you've been employed.

    Health benefits are essentially catastrophic benefits. The only real benefit is the discounted prices for services negotiated by the insurance company. Otherwise virtually everything is paid for out of pocket.

    good vacation policy, the health insurance had a low deductible and high out of pocket expenses it seemed like every doctor visit i was paying $100 to $200 out of pocket. For a family, you almost always hit the maximum out of pocket of $6,000

    Get more costly every year while there are no raises. Haven’t seen a raise in 5+ years. Paid time off is there, but it’s tough to use and you are on call 24/7/365 .

    Older employees, especially those that came from companies that Staples purchased had decent pay. New hires, get pretty much poor salaries which is why they have trouble hiring good people.
