    I worked at Staples part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A majority of the customer's are really nice, and I love the regulars that come in. I enjoyed working hands on with my customer's helping them create things to promote their business's.

    Cons

    Pay is horrible for all employees, and chances of getting a good raise or moving up in the company are slim to none. Corporate does not care about it's employees at all and they force employees to make the customer's buy things they don't need especially in tech. If you don't you can loose your job.

    Advice to Management

    Take an interest in the people you employ, even at the lower store level. They are the face of your company and if you treating them like they are nothing then it will show and you will loose customers.
