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

Pros

If you have experience it pays well. And even if you don't have the best experiences like with being an easy tech associate or tech, they will definitely help you with improving that knowledge base. The interview was a one on one with manager.

Cons

Some of the management like to pick favorites or get clouded with stress from the stuff that is going on. When I worked there, the organization of the extra stock wasn't the best but since I have visited the store it has definitely improved. You will only get paid to a certain amount on an hourly wage.

Advice to Management

Hire more manager if the work load on the amount already there is too much for them in which return effects their unprofessional attitude towards the employees.

    I have been working at Staples full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, Diverse environment, Great employees(90%), Great customers(68%), Stable company. Lots of education available, as long as you make sure to ask for it, push for it, and take charge. Part-time employees get benefits (though very limited)

    Cons

    Communication is sometimes challenging from the district managers/regional managers to store managers. Retail hours, District manager is more concerned career than problem solving. Sales of extended warranties, ET services, and attachments are overly stressed and are by large the highest contributing factors to an employee's performance. Such emphasis on sales numbers can indeed be stressful. Employee hours constantly fluctuate. Often asked to do things that are not within the scope of your position. Not enough emphasis on maintaining a standard appearance or baseline cleanliness of the store. A great place if your expectations are low.

    Advice to Management

    Truly value your employees. The better you treat them, the better they treat the customer, the better your profit. See them as real people, and treat them how you'd want to be treated. They are people not numbers!

    Pros

    ability to work independently, not really micro managed, longevity bonus

    Cons

    lots of pressure to have print projects completed on a weekly basis, commission payout could be higher.

    Advice to Management

    don't make reps feel like they are burned and churned, perfomance plans only work to give notice to find a new job
