    I have been working at Staples part-time

    Pros

    Amazing first year working for this company. Moved up to an IA after showing strong dedication in literally 3 months. Very heavy task oriented job for low pay. A lot of the weight falls on your shoulders. But if you know your job you get good pay for full-time hours. Great motivation first year on the job. Got pushed everyday to do better.

    Cons

    Having skills in the sales field and being very good at approaching customers, while also have the skill set of understanding the job of an IA, you would expect there to be a little more appreciation. Sadly it's not there. No motivation to keep up the good work. Which as a con makes a poorly enthused associate.

    Advice to Management

    Find where there are low percentages in the company in your statistics you strive so hard for, and physically see what's going on rather than suggest we do better. Because the reason for a poor store could be due to poor motivation maybe?
