"Probably what you would expect from a summer job"

Former Employee - Sales Associate in Chapel Hill, NC
Former Employee - Sales Associate in Chapel Hill, NC

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

Pros

Get to work closely with some of your co-workers, who I got along well with so I enjoyed the
camaraderie
The managers were generally helpful if you had any clarifications needed

Cons

Deliberately tried to avoid giving OT even during busy periods, which would lead to work getting piled up causing for some odd (EARLY) hours in order to work when the customers weren't in the store
Had to wear multiple hats at once sometimes when people would not show up or call in sick

    Company (and you should not expect otherwise from any company) is uninterested in your family or personal life, nor your ability to incorporate them in your life.

    Advice to Management

    Do not give the impression of honesty to your employees, truly be honest with them.
