    I worked at Staples part-time

    Pros

    Great for a high school job. Managers had realistic expectations and greatly appreciated any amount of my putting in more effort than needed. Great at working around my school schedule.

    Cons

    Like many retail places, the corporate level feels so separated from the actual stores due to the wide number of seemingly random things they cared about and the sparse visits from even our district manager.

    Advice to Management

    Actually getting on the floor and doing the same work that you ask of your employees really helps boost moral.

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Staples full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, 501K match, every day is a challenge

    Cons

    Your experience will vary depending on GM, DM, and RVP. Some managers are protected, too big to fail, often at the expense of poor store performance.

    Advice to Management

    Hold your GMs accountable
