Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Good environment, higher end customers, specialty retail, lots of usual customers.

Cons

Upper management (General Manager/District Managers) not helpful and usually at the mercy of their boss's yelling sessions. Made for unruly meetings, not useful promotions and very little customer appreciation.

Advice to Management

Be realistic in the goals you set for employees. They are making minimum wage, you're salary.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Some good people to work with.

    Cons

    Low associate to customer average at all times...no specialty, if you are a tech you stock and ring as well or jack of all trades, low wages, management is lazy. Have a GM who sat in the office all day and contributed nothing to the bottom line. average age of customer is 60

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people, try to cater to a younger crowd, stop paying the CEO millions while the people on the floor make nothing
