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

    Pros

    There is now high compensation per hour. There is also the ability to take on new opportunities and gain experience in different aspects of the company, like technology, sales, and copy and print.

    Cons

    There is a lack of upward mobility and a lack of flexibility from management. I worked at two different locations, and within both, management relies on their employees to learn new responsibilities without giving them the opportunity to move into higher roles.

    I have been working at Staples (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Steady hours, everyone needs office supplies . Fulfillment Centers are closed on weekends. I've worked in a few warehouses and this is one of the better.

    Cons

    Poorly trained supervisors, lacking good communication skills, in turn trickles down to uninformed bitter employees.
    Ignorance spreads lies. No yearly bonus. Pay grades could use a bump. (But who doesn't feel like they need a raise)

    Advice to Management

    TRAIN YOUR SUPERVISORS.

    I worked at Staples full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The best reasons would be growth potential. Interaction with different guest daily. Developing and training associates. Competitive sales environment. Excellent benefits including stock options.

    Cons

    Poor replenishment of merchandise. Unrealistic payroll budgets during peak times. Need to update CBT training. Need to do better at offering cross training programs.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management should be more visible during non peak times. They should be aware of the development of all associates. If they have not been promoted from within, they should go through a training process that is geared towards the success of the company.
