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

Pros

Positive environment, Managers are always out to help you learn. At my store the managers are flexible with hours and are good about giving time off when needed.

Cons

As with all retail stores customers can sometimes be a bear. When "back to school" season hits there is a lot more expected from the employees.

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

    Pros

    My coworkers were excellent employees.

    Cons

    Once I was in the management training program, I was privy to the information that the "Carrot and Stick" motivation method is something they actively promote. In other words, they tell their employees they will move up soon to get them to stay despite sub-par pay.

    Advice to Management

    Consider giving your employees something else to be excited about other than empty promises.

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

    Pros

    My location is awesome. My managers are easy going, and you really do get some good training. The customers are cool 95% of the time, associates get to use a discount, there is always something to do, and they aren't too pushy, but expect you to try. I always get a steady schedule/hours. They also work around my school schedule with no hassle.

    Cons

    It goes by location. You do have to wear a uniform, but at least they give you the shirts.

    Advice to Management

    I suggest you do your systems maintenance over night. It takes so much effort and time; and cost business to do things outside of the systems.
