Corporate and cold
COPY & PRINT CENTER EXPERT AND KEYHOLDER (Former Employee), Boulder, COAugust 22, 2014
Pros: college education reimbursement plan after 1 year
Cons: management
Management only cares about sales, not their associates. my experience was that if you don't hit your numbers, you are slowly driven out by having your schedule cut back so that you are forced to find something else to survive.

Was paid $4/hr less than the male supervisor that was in my position before me. They hired cashiers with no work experience – more... whatsoever at a higher rate than I was making as a department lead after 4 years with the company. – less

COPY & PRINT CENTER EXPERT AND KEYHOLDER (Former Employee), Boulder, COAugust 22, 2014
Cons: management
Management cares about sales numbers. My experience was that if you do not reach those numbers they aren't interested in you and will slowly drive you out by decreasing your hours.

Pay is inadequate at best and unfair at worst.

Great time working for retail powerhouse.
Various Positions (Former Employee), Bronx, NYAugust 21, 2014
7 years of hardcore retail experience. From entry level merchandiser to Customer Service Lead/front end management, I performed it all and very well. Dealing with the customer face to face. So long as standards were followed, the business ran smoothly. Staples has done the research to keep the company on top.

Wonderful work environment
TEAM SUPERVISOR (Current Employee), Webster, TXAugust 21, 2014
Pros: fun environment with happy coworkers
Cons: job instability
The job itself is one of the best I've had. It allowed me to work at a steady pace, while also providing different challenges on a daily basis. My management staff always supported me with solutions when I needed them. There's nothing I dislike about Staples. The only reason I've chosen to seek employment elsewhere is because the company itself is not – more... doing well. Store locations are shutting down and people are being laid off. – less

Not Worth the Pay
Easy Tech Expert/Sales Associate (Former Employee), Stuart, FLAugust 20, 2014
Pros: 10% discount
Cons: inconsistent schedule, hostile work environment, not enough employees
Rarely got my breaks, the managers were never around to deal with customers issues, as the lack of organization at this store created friction between employees and managers. It was a hostile work environment filled with inappropriate banter and conversation from our managers, from sexist to racist remarks, calling out of work due to sickness was like – more... being asked to be berated relentlessly the next day at work.

I am a Veteran, and being treated the way I was treated working at that store while getting paid 8.50 an hour (while being promised an increase in pay for 6 months) until I turned in my 2 week notification then they increased my pay to 9.75. Still not worth it... – less

Fast Paced Environment with room to grow
Associate Category Manager (Current Employee), Framingham, MAAugust 20, 2014
Staples is great company to learn and grow with. You are challenged to run your own business and move quickly. Any decision that you make should always be backed up with your financial analysis. Management tends to be very hands off and slow in making decisions. Co-workers are great and Staples promotes a team environment.

Managers who know less about computers than the associates!
Resident Onsite Technician (Former Employee), Hilton Head Island, SCAugust 19, 2014
Pros: learn about new technology
Cons: management, quick turnaround, no room for advancement, not willing to work with college schedule
Glad I am gone! With a manager gnawing on tobacco all day and knowing WAY less than you about computers the fact that he gets paid double what you do makes you lose faith in a company that gave me a decent start.
