I worked at Staples part-time

Pros

Interesting work. You get to learn a lot from the management, and they are constantly pushing you to sell more plans.

Cons

Constant push to sell can be a lot of pressure but it's a sales position to I think that's something you have to expect from that.
Pay wasn't that great for the amount of work done.

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

    Pros

    they had good music, dogs were aloud in the store apparently

    Cons

    they kept loosing my paycheck EVERY WEEK, constantly training, talk down on you, they even get pissy if you put in for a day off for an important doctors appointment, no one is aloud over 25hrs a week seriously everyone on for this one week besides the higher ups had 19 to 20 hours one girl even had 15 hours

    Advice to Management

    STOP LOSING PEOPLES CHECKS your losing one employee already to that, and i'm going next

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

    Pros

    At least I had full-time status while I was there. They don't really have very many full-time employees. I never had to work overtime, and the commission structure was okay

    Cons

    Despite what the posters in the break room say, there are not really good opportunities for advancement, and hard work isn't rewarded appropriately.

    Advice to Management

    Real recognition of success of individuals should be rewarded, perhaps with PTO or a small gift card or something like that.
