    I have been working at Staples part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -You learn a lot about computers
    -Co-workers are okay but it varies on location

    Cons

    -Constant changes in schedule. They would call you and say you are supposed to be here at this time lets just say 3PM when your schedule you have a photocopy of says you are off or you come in at 5PM and they get mad.
    -YOU HAVE TO PHOTOCOPY YOUR SCHEDULE! Managers change it so much that if they pull what I said above keep it with you all week to get out of trouble
    -I was only getting 10 hours a week because of cutbacks
    -Obsessed with numbers, you are a number mill if you don't sell you get out
    -Very little room for advancement
    -Pay sucks I have an associates and got only 7.35 an hour to fix computers
    -If you are a tech you never work on computers generally you are the only one there and you wont get anything done because the manager wants you to do floor work you didn't sign up for and then your tech manager gets mad and chews you out for not getting tech work done.
    -Way to many "come to Jesus" meetings.
    -You are not allowed to do outside tech work what so ever. They want to control what you do in store and out of the store. If you are caught you're fired.

    Advice to Management

    Get better organized, treat your associates better, better wages, more hours, and be fair.
