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

    Pros

    gained experience in the field, built on customer service skills, each day was a little different.

    Cons

    very pushy for getting sales and upselling, pay isn't very good for what you're doing, some of their policies are questionable

    Advice to Management

    Sure upselling makes the company more money, but it's a daunting task for people who aren't hired as salesmen and are hired as technicians.
