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

    Pros

    I worked in the Copy / Print center. It meant most of the time people weren't giving me extraneous tasks outside of my area.

    Cons

    Customers are expectant and condescending. Management wants us to make 'one time deals' with customers that result in customers expecting lower prices every time they come in. Corporate changes running offers without letting associates know. Pay grade for what is a specialized job is demeaning and will not sustain you on the hours you could get, which more often than not comes from covering someone elses shift (with about half an hour advanced notice).

    Advice to Management

    Hire new people at an actual competitive starting pay and they might overlook how poorly the store is managed

    I worked at Staples full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you are a student this is the company for you. They are very accommodating to schedules changing every semester and work hard to get you hours that still allow you time to study.

    Cons

    As a copy center associate you are overworked. This department is understaffed and gets very busy. You have to be adamant about taking breaks because some days you won't even realize that your shift is almost over and you haven't had a break.

    Advice to Management

    The management team at this store is very likable. You can tell you care about their employees, but sometimes company policies don't allow them the freedom they need to be even better as a management team.
