    I worked at Staples full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked with a great group of people in our FC, opportunities for growth or transfer were great. Very performance driven with great communication regarding personal performance.

    Cons

    Often had hectic days. Delivery vehicles would break down often.

    Advice to Management

    We had a spectacular operation in the Detroit market, Ron Sargent shouldn’t have closed down the FC’s. With our own dedicated delivery operations, we were ambassadors for the company. We were the face of Staples, to save a few bucks, it was decided to outsource the delivery of the customers order for a failed attempt at a merger with Depot.

    I worked at Staples full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The management was very friendly and supportive

    Cons

    It's retail, meaning most of the work involves stacking shelves or taking inventory. This can become very tedious, as there are a lot of small products. Not bad for someone who enjoys busywork, though

    I have been working at Staples part-time

    Pros

    Local management is good. Provide 10% percent store discount for empoyee's

    Cons

    The corporation doesn't seem to care about the employees. Expect you to sell products but offer no compensation for being a good sales man.

    Advice to Management

    stop focusing on credit cards and start focusing on what customers want. Get rid of impulse buys. Customers hardly ever buy from them and they yell at the employees about them.
