Head Cashier (Current Employee), Hauppauge, NYApril 16, 2014
Pros: incentives, recognition
Cons: few employees, occasional long shifts
Customers are friendly and the store is located in a friendly hamlet. There is never a boring day, from researching a product for customers, to filling isles and maintaining a clean storefront.

Stepping stone at best
EasyTech Technician (Former Employee), Bloomington, INApril 15, 2014
Pros: a+ certification, network+ certification
Cons: same as any min wage job except salary level work, multiple job requirements
Do everything but get paid like a minimum wage flunky, get certified but don't plan on moving up in the company, you get no credit for even the best idea, everything great you do is a team effort but everything they don't like is a merit on your permanent record.

Productive and satisfying work place with fun energy
Staples Employee (Former Employee), Nyack, NYApril 15, 2014
A typical day at work consist of stocking shelves, helping customers to make sure their shopping experience was a great one. From working here I have learned how to better find solutions to problems as I was always help customers fix their problems. My co-workers were very fun and enjoyable to be around as well as my managers. I would not say there – more... were more things that were harder to do than the other because having and maintaining a job is hard work all together. I love working, I love the feeling of being self sufficient and helping people throughout the day. – less

Fast paced enviorment
Order Selector/Stocker (Current Employee), Hagerstown MDApril 14, 2014
Pros: free luches we occasionaly get for a job well done.
Cons: having to work 12 hrs a day they are exhausting
Start at 7 p.m. and ends at 7A.M. I run a reach truck. The truck has a rf on it that directs me where to pick up a product and take it to a location to be stocked so the selector then ship it to the customer. The hardest part is you are on a number . You have to perform at 100%. I give 100% percent all the time even if the time keeper doesn't think – more... so. The most enjoyable part is the friendship that I made over the years there. – less

Staples as a company is not bad to work for. It's your direct management that is.
Copy and Print Center Supervisor (Current Employee), annonymousApril 10, 2014
The company puts certain things in place to keep their associates happy, such as paid time off (vacations, sick time, personal time) but getting your managers to actually give you what you deserve it a complete different thing. I worked in the printing dept and get constant calls from work day & night when I am not there. The pay is very poor, not enough – more... to support yourself. Although it is very hard to get fired from Staples, that also makes it difficult to work there, since many people who should not work there, still do. I've seen people do a no-call no-show 3 times in two weeks and still get promoted. The hardest part of my particular job is that there is not enough training time for associates, and management is clueless about my department. It's hard to get your breaks, lunches, or even get someone to just cover your department while you run to the restroom - this was especially aggravating when I was pregnant. The most enjoyable part of the job is the customer base that you have, and being able to meet deadlines and really come through for the customer. Since it is retail, your schedule is all over the place, you can work 8-4 one day, 2-10 the next, and 7-3 the day after that, which makes it hard to develop any type of schedule for yourself. Although it is a tough job, I have learned a lot from Staples. – less

You get what you put into it
Manager of Operations/ Sales & Merchandising (Current Employee), Rego Park, NYApril 10, 2014
Pros: tight knit group/ family like
Cons: corporate disconnect with stores, communication from leaders and advancement for current leaders
Most enjoyable part of the job is being apart of a tight knit management team and having a direct relationship with the business and the customers. A lot was learned during my tenure here and had the ability to teach and grow others. I gave 110% all the time and as any company sometimes I felt like it was being overlooked. Corporate does have a slight – more... disconnect as whats going on in the stores relying heavily on sales metrics while operationally stores and company standards fall. Some communication should be prioritized and sent to management in a professional and timely fashion along with the consistency of programs, operational activities, employee recognition and etc. Overall if you arent prepared to overlook some details, stay focused and put in your all in your stores you can come out on top. Management and associates depending on the culture of stores give 110% .Once was a very people oriented brand. Slowly losing that charisma – less

Productive, Busy and sometimes Overwhelming
Copy and Print Center Manager (Current Employee), Rock Hill, SCApril 9, 2014
Pros: a discount given for employees twice a year.
Cons: healthcare benefits
My typical day is normally alot of problem solving and providing solutions to my customers. Its always a constant "think outside the box" environment. This makes my day very busy and production. Its fun and enjoyable knowing you have works smart and helped a lot of people satified in the process.
The hardest part of my job will be when labor has been – more... reduced and hours are cut by the company.It can really make a difference when the one extra person needed to make the job more enjoyable and productive is not there. – less
