    I worked at Staples full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I worked for the company for 8+ years until the division I worked in was closed down. During my time with I was treated well and was kept informed on what was going on in our division. Pay was average for the job I performed and the hours were great.

    Cons

    Company uses 3rd parties for many of it's functions. Most HR is referred to a company outside of the US that can be difficult to work with.
