    You are treated like garbage by all management. They do not give you breaks that you are intitled to. They do not train you properly for the position you were hired for do not pay you fairly and yell at you for not doing it right?

    I have read some of the comments in this forum and have to say I am very surprised at some of the reactions to this role. The Staples Way training was one of the best sales training I received (and I have previous sales experience). Also if people have had a bad experience with one manager, it does not represent the company as a whole. I feel that with any position if you work hard and treat it as a career and not just another "job" you will find REAL success within Staples. I was a B2BSC (business to business sales consultant) for 3 years and have been promoted to an Area Sales Manager. Within my team 5 B2BSC's have been promoted within the last 2 years. You get what you put into the role, simple enough.

    Every business has it's own style. What is the office environment and culture like at Staples? Are people dressed in business casual, jeans and t-shirts, or full-on suits? Do folks get together for Friday happy hours and friendly get-togethers? What is a typical day in the life of an employee at Staples?

    Former Staples in Bartlesville, Oklahoma 15 months ago
    I have just accepted a position as a CSL. I'm very excited as I enjoy customer service and leadership. I have read nothing but negative comments, so I was curious if anyone had any positive things to say? If so, I'd be very interested in hearing positive situations from past or current associates, techs, and management. Any help would be appreciated !

    Do not work for Staples as an Inside Sales Rep. I worked there for many many years and will tell you exactly what happend to me. Everything was going well until the start of the year and they raised the quota up huge. I looked at the numbers in the system and was doing well above quota. They did not get the official numbers until three months later because they kept on making mistakes. When they finally came out with the numbers, they were still wrong. We all told the managers that the numbers were not correct but they insisted they were. Two weeks later eleven of us were called into a room and told that we were all layed off for not making our numbers. After the layoff, about three weeks later I found out that they made mistakes on the numbers again and found out they fired us based on incorrect numbers. I don't know if they did this on purpose or what but it is disgusting and cruel to do to someone. One guy who got layed off was having a baby in 4 weeks and was told his medical insurance was going to be cut off three days before the baby was born. Also in the severence contract they stated that the vacation pay was to be paid on a specific date but was never paid and thus making the contract null and void.

    Do you work at Staples? How did you find the job? How did you get that first interview? Any advice for someone trying to get in?

    New Oracle Financial manager at Staples who joined last year hires only his people even though they are not worth and have no idea what they do . Hiring is fixed and interview is only nominal in this department at Staples. He manages work using consultants and indulges in unfair hiring practices

    I'm looking for a job involving computer repair, and I heard that Staples has a similar position. What is it called (what job title would I look for when applying)? Do they require any professional experience? I have my CompTIA A+ (computer technician) and Network+ (network technician) certifications and I've been repairing computers for family and friends for years, but I have no professional experience (so Best Buy won't take me). Any info on this job and advice on how to get it would be appreciated. Thanks

    What do you think -- is this company going to survive and thrive? Are they looking to expand their staff, or do you think layoffs are inevitable? How does Staples stack up against the competition?
