Dont work at the staples!!!!
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Riverhead, NYJuly 5, 2015
Pros: Fun coworkers
Cons: General manager, pay, and expected to do too much for little pay
Had nice fun co-workers. Learned how to deal with rude customers. Hardest part was being asked to do too much by the general manager when you're being paid so little. Met some nice people working here though.

Price Auditor/Cashier (Current Employee), Fountain Valley, CAJuly 5, 2015
Pros: We are a family and work hard toward one goal. Customer service
Cons: Air Conditioner needs to be more POWERFUL in our store. Mostly during the SUMMER.
I enjoy work here, cause I get to meet people from all walks of life. I also gain knowledge of the retail industry and how the demands are meet in a high volume store. The employees there are wonderful to work with and be around. We believe we are a family oriented company that provide no.#1 customer service to our customers.

Pros: pay is ok
Cons: not a lot of hours.
A typical day was to come in, check in with what's going on concerning tech sales and plans. Then if we are doing well, continue and if we are doing bad then we have to step up and try our best to sell more.

Fun and productive but troublesome place to work
Team Member (Former Employee), Brooklyn, NYJune 26, 2015
Pros: fun and dependable coworkers, good places to eat lunch nearby, generous managers, fun products to buy
Cons: short or no breaks, barely any benefits, lazy managers, sometimes trouble collecting paycheck, manager played favoritsm
Working at staples was a fun and productive place to work for several reasons. A typical day at work was just like any other workplace. I would get to work, clock in, put on my name tag, check with the managers with what was going on at work and if they needed my help with anything, then get to work. It was a small store so there weren't that many employees or managers there. However, the few that were there were very kind and helpful and made great team members, as well as the managers. It was troublesome because there were numerous occasions when I was missing hours on my paycheck, or wasn't able to receive my paycheck in a timely manner. However, to my understanding the managers were always busy.

Copy & Print Associate (Current Employee), North Las Vegas, NVJune 25, 2015
Pros: StarPoints; Teamwork
Cons: Only part-time available.
I love working for Staples. I look forward to going to work everyday, especially in the Copy & Print department.

My graphic design skills are challenged daily.

Management is supportive.

My co-workers make an awesome team. Everyone is upbeat and very customer service oriented.

I haven't worked retail that much, so this has been a new and exciting experience for me.
