    I have been working at Staples part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good job for people entering the workforce. Easy to manage this job plus school because of flexible availability. Job is not very difficult and expectations are low.

    Cons

    Management is very unprofessional. Schedules change mid-week with no warning or alerts. In over two years I've received a total of 45 cents in raises (while consistently being in top 2 for most sales) and moving up within the company is difficult because must upper management jobs are outsourced. The brick & mortar stores are always understaffed so customers consistently unsatisfied with help and take it out on associates who have nothing to do with staffing. They will constantly add to the scope of your job and tasks you're responsible for without increasing compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Stop job condensing. I shouldn't make less than a dollar more than an employee who is newly hired in the same department after being with the company for more than two years.

    Need to get store level management under control. They are either extremely unprofessional or totally clueless, and consistently blame things on corporate.
