    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Great for gaining retail experience.

    Cons

    Management only cares about salary and has no concern for the well bieng of associates, pay is terrible and every review prevents you from getting a raise.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to care for your associates a little more and you will find that they may enjoy coming in to work. Don't be so quick to cut hours when an associate is ill and has to take time off.

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Management can be down to earth, flexible schedules, decent benefits for students and part timers.

    Cons

    Too much work for being an easy tech associate and not enough pay: No incentive to really sell as there are no commissions, driving unrealistic sales goals and constantly having "the talk" despite forcing yourself to be a pushy salesperson, and kissing the ground of almost every customer, typical retail environment.

    Advice to Management

    What is the point of being an easy tech? I can be a merchandiser and get the same pay rate. How about treating the easy tech right so there would be more moral, more incentive for us to be salespeople rather than just some typical retail associate. Let someone else do the labor because we are supposed to be the brains and drive in the money.
