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

    Pros

    Great location in Virginia. The copycenter staff is the best. They are always busy but if u watch them work u will see how hard they work.

    Cons

    Short staff in copycenter. The store manager is OK for now. Some of the employees are rude and mean for no reason.

    Good work environment and competent company.

    Pros

    Brand name environment. Friendly, diverse coworkers. Long history of survival. Frequent sales and promotions. Decent location though MA is high tax.

    Cons

    Little respect from customers and management. Frequent commiseration. No time to rest or sit, get to know colleagues or try to improve. Lost in a big corporation.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate all employees, often the brighter ones occupy lesser jobs. Find a way to cultivate talent and ditch the big brother.
