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

Pros

The staples I worked at was a great place to start my retail career. The managers were friendly and helpful. If I had any questions everything was explained clearly without ever making me feel stupid. I learnt a lot and I feel it helped me. There is a lot of positive reinforcement. When I did a good job they made sure I knew it.

Cons

The pay wasn't great but it was just an entry level position. There is a lot of pushing towards higher sales but I think that is the case in any corporate retail job.
