Negative Outlook

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

Pros

Earned all of my own responsibility, and job was evaluated based on results. Excellent pay and excellent working conditions.

Cons

The company put their Sr. Level Management people first, their Shareholders next in line, their Customers third in line. Very easy to put in the extra effort and hours at the expense of a poor "work-life" balance. That's my fault, I guess.

Advice to Management

After you take care of the Customer, consider your workforce first, then the shareholders.

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Even if you're a part time employee they give you an option to have benefits.
    You learn a lot and depending on the team you work with, it's how successful you will be.
    There are also incentives sometimes for being a good associate.

    Cons

    Sometimes the amount of upselling gets ridiculous, and focus on a lot of things at once. This is difficult to do because its retail and customers want to leave the store as fast as possible.
