Pros

Some of the best reasons to work at Staples would be compensation fairness, the flexible hours, and the competence and understanding of the management teams. Advancement opportunities and tools are all available if you work for it.

Cons

Some of the work becomes very monotonous and/or tedious. Management could communicate amongst themselves a little better. Store-to-Store communication could be better as well.

Advice to Management

Great at helping the associates get what they want out of Staples, such as growth & development tools or hours. They do sometimes, though, become lax in their own performance.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    good work-life balance, too many bosses, too much reliance on building a process that no one follows. Sh*t rolls down hill.

    Cons

    Get into the right inner circles and you will be rewarded. If you do not, things will be difficult for you.

    Advice to Management

    You weren't always in a leadership position. However, none of you seem to remember that. Take a hard look at yourselves and how you treat employees you like vs. don't like. This isn't High School, is it? oh wait...
