    Pros

    The best reasons for working at staples are benefits, job security, and schedules. At staples they offer great benefits for a retail company with health, dental, vision, life, and auto insurance. Job security at staples is very good as it is one of the most stable companies to work for.

    Cons

    The downsides at staples are favoritism, and lack of good wages. Although staples may have the best benefits, their salaries are very low at all levels from associate to general manager. Another reason is lack of advancement, Staples would rather hire outside experience and train them then hire home grown associates and pay them well.

    Advice to Management

    Give regular associates a chance to move up in the company.

    Pros

    Staples is a generally non- stressful job where as long as you make an effort no one will question your competence or work ethic. Management pushes you to sell products and warranties, but if you do well- they notice and praise you. If you are good at your job, you will feel valued. Promotion from within is also relatively easy. You can become a department head within a few months if you are good. After a year you can become an Assistant Manager and based on your performance eventually becoming a general (store) manager isn't hard either.

    Cons

    Pay is mediocre compared to other large retailers. Raises are not large.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work environment.
