    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Great pay and flexible hours. I made some good friends, and they were great with my personal issues and helping me out.

    Cons

    I worked in copy and print. It was okay at first, then I made a mistake and instead of coaching me they just dismissed me. When confronted they continued to avoid it. When I put in my two weeks they guilted me into staying.
    The other thing that upset me was the fact that the manager felt he was too good to work weekends and evenings. As well as the supervisors. They would once in a while but reluctantly.

    Advice to Management

    LISTEN TO YOUR EMPLOYEE AND COACH THEM

    Pros

    It's a friendly and fast-paced environment. The management is incredibly helpful and willing to work with your schedule, especially if it involves school.

    Cons

    There's not a whole lot, I think office supplies should be able to carry something with them (like an apron, a tool belt, something along those lines) so they have everything they need throughout their shift.

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

    Pros

    Coworkers were awesome
    Hourly rate was nice

    Cons

    Our management would push sales on us way too hard. If you didn't get at least 5 rewards sign ups per shift (even if you were on the floor the entire time), they'd deduct from your hours. Nevermind the fact that we had multiple shady managers in the past who only left because 1.) They actually got caught stealing something or 2.) They had health problems. It didn't matter that they treated us like poop or, in some cases, spoke a little too 'friendly' to the female employees, if you get what I'm saying

    Advice to Management

    Now I understand the District Manager has a specific set of quotas for the store, but put that more on the cashiers than the sales floor people. I understood why they were mad if I was on register and had horrible numbers some days, but if I'm on the floor assisting customers and helping sell products, that has to count for something.
