No opinion of CEO

I worked at Staples full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Could get away with a lot and not get fired.

Cons

Almost everything else SUCKS about this company. Avoid.

Advice to Management

Work on fixing your pathetic copy centers. Your people work too hard for nothing. Service is hard and it's the hardest job in the store. I've still got high blood pressure from working there.

    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.

    Continue to place value on your tech associates and continue their education within the company
