I worked at Staples full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

The best part was I got to work in multiple departments by request, Office Supplies/Furniture/Copy Centre/Cash. Scheduling was flexible, and they were supportive of my college career and life in general. I find this rare in most companies. They treated me well, and I always had friends there, in management and co-workers.

Cons

Moving up for career opportunities isn't fantastic, you have to move around a lot like a hot potatoe. Never happened to me, but saw it happen multiple times to co-workers and managers constantly leaving and being replaced. Part of the reason why I stayed put and happy in my position.

Advice to Management

Upper management stayed the same and were always great, but lower management moved around a lot (as stated in cons). Sometimes the new management would try to take over departments and not have faith and confidence in the dedicated long-term employees the store had before the new management came around. Maybe there should be more communication with new management about which employees to trust and let them do there thing when they come into the new store. I understand new managers have responsibility to tune-up stores to show their worth and get promoted, but not every store needs a complete re-work.
