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

    Pros

    Within one year of working with the company, I received five promotions, all accompanied by raises. Job is easy to develop a routine with, and on the job training is available in most cases.

    Cons

    Stores severely understaffed, causing strain to few employees who remain being forced to pick up excess slack. In most cases, a promotion to a higher position actually means you will be performing duties of old position and current position, because your former position will not be filled.

    Advice to Management

    Learn who your dead weight is, and when to drop them. Positions in the stores are so few as it is, do not let them continue to be filled by unmotivated workers.

    I worked at Staples full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good Training, Great benefits. The pay was good.

    Cons

    Be ready to give your soul to the Easy Button

    Advice to Management

    The company as a whole is solid. You will defenitely learn a lot. The biggest draw back is that you have get along with the right people or you are marked for life. Also you have to make the impossible happen or you are of no more value to them. For a company that stressed open door so much, they really didn't want to hear the truth.
