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

    Pros

    The pro of working at Staples in Cranberry was without a doubt the great team of co-workers as well as most of the customers that entered the store. A great place for a tech with little or no experience to start until they get some experience or a real job. Also a good place for computer hobbyists to work (since that is what they normally hire).

    Cons

    Staples is a company that promotes advantage. What I mean by that is they will promote anything that is to their advantage while using the employees like toilet tissue. They are a company that cannot make up their mind as to whether they are a copy center, office supply store, or a cheap version of Best Buy.
    They will offer opportunity to move up but fall short with the follow through after they lay a list of demands at your feet. You will be repeatedly lied to due to in store politics as well as micro-management. In general they are a waste of time for any college leveled or experienced techs.

    Advice to Management

    The best thing the company could do is figure out who they are. Also there should be regional managers who are truly versed in the areas they are assigned to. If they plan to be a relevant member of the technology service industry they should pay the technicians a fair wage as well as have managers who are up to date on these technologies. Regional managers should have a more hands on approach as well as an educational background in the computer service industries.
