    Pros

    Nice atmosphere and great managers. Very easy to schedule time off. If you work hard management will notice and it will be rewarded.

    Nothing is done to protect employees from rude customers. Customers can be very abusive to staff and nothing is done about it

    Advice to Management

    Do more about customers being rude/verbally abusing staff.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Staples part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    My favorite thing is the flexibility of the schedules here. I am a full-time student on a sports team and I am still able to squeeze in a few days a week here.

    Cons

    I really can't think of anything that really bothers me about this place. If I had to, I would say the customers can be extremely inconsiderate and impatient, but that's just part of customer service, right?

    Invest in your associates, and celebrate small successes.
