    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 have been working at Staples full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The key to success of managing your own territory. Actually, whatever it takes to make you successful. Staples is a marketing icon and progressing on the cutting the cutting edge, of technology and humor.

    Cons

    The biggest disadvantage there is no room for advancement regardless of what you have accomplished or how long you have been in your position. Also, after 12 months of closing business your commission is only for 12 months and after 12 months staples and account managers get paid off the business but you will not.

    Advice to Management

    Take a closer look at long term commissions on existing business and have two reps no more than 3 per state. Smaller states with less cities should only have two reps to maximize growth. Other wise staples will continue to cycle through reps.
