Warehouse Associate (Current Employee), Orlando, FL – October 21, 2014
Pros: free coffee, sometimes we have voluntary time off
Cons: mandatory overtime, dont help the employee, short breaks, really hot warehouse
They put too much pressure in every employee to exceed the company expectations, but they don't have any consideration for the employees. We don't receive any bonuses if you make our pace or if we meet the warehouse goals. In summer it gets really hot inside the warehouse, like 115 degrees. They don't want to install a better a/c unit for us. I learned – more... how a Office Supply warehouse works, how to pick customers orders, learned about their computer system. The management don't help the employee like they supposed to. If you have a personal situation, they don't give you advise about what you can do within company policy. I have good co-workers, some of them are willing to go above and beyond helping other co-workers. My hardest part of the job is work for a company who don't appreciate their employees. I enjoy the fact we have music inside the warehouse. – less
Product Specialist (Former Employee), Framingham, MA – October 21, 2014
I was employed at Staples for 6 years and reported into 4 different managers. While all the styles were very different, only one provided a good work/life balance - which was very important to me as a new Mother. I ultimately decided to leave Staples for opportunities that would better suit my experience and professional goals while allowing me to balance – more... out family responsibilities. – less
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Las Cruces, NM – October 21, 2014
It was a very stressful work environment because there wasn't any job security and no matter how much you met goals or expectations there was no room for advancement. The employers lied to me on numerous occasions promising me promotions and opportunity to advance in the company yet never fell through on their promises.
Sr. Logistics Systems Design Analyst (Current Employee), Framingham, MA – October 21, 2014
Pros: lots of opportunities to venture in to different types of work
Staples Inc is an awesome company to work for. I felt comfortable being brought to the table for discussions and streamlining efforts to reduce costs while delivering the perfect order to our customers. I've learned to strengthen people skills as well as advance skills in data analysis and designing projects to ensure sustainable benefits are captured. – more... I really enjoyed being able to own projects/assignments in the field like Driver Academy and go through Green Belt training that fitted me with the readiness to apply what i has been learned and put it into practice. – less
For someone who is a college student, this would be a pretty good place to work. Employee discount came in handy for back to school shopping, and Staples also offers a scholarship. The employer of the store I worked at was very lenient and flexible with scheduling. I learned so much about different computers and various programs. The hardest part of – more... the job was selling certain products. I sometimes had trouble talking to customers about selling due to my anxiety, but the managers helped me through it. – less
Operations Support - Resolution Representative (Current Employee), Denver, CO – October 19, 2014
Answering phone calls 95 percent of the day. Currently learning the print world and how to spec forms for custom printing. I work with a good group of people who are supportive of each other. It's a small team and when one person is not at work, the whole team feels the affects. The hardest part of the job is the unrealistic expectations that management – more... wants, which is to stay available to take calls all day but still manage to complete other tasks at the same time such as replying to emails and making outbound calls to follow up with customers. Working as a team with my co-workers. – less
Easy Tech Associate (Former Employee), Pittsburgh, PA – October 19, 2014
Pros: performance bonuses
Cons: stress enviornment
I was in sales in the technology department of the store so I had to tell customers on how electronics worked, what would be good for their situation, etc. I enjoyed the job and the people I worked with but the customers were unruly from time to time. I also learned abilities in stocking and delivery as well as P.O.S system and register.
Easy Tech Expert (Former Employee), new york , ny – October 16, 2014
Pros: great enviroment, customer interaction, room to grow within company
Cons: short breaks, managers werent well trained, minimal pay increase
come into work in the morning review the previous sales for the day before also track down how close to their goal our employees were in terms of service plans sold. After that meet with my general manager and discuss the days activities and what the expectations would be for the employees. hardest part of the day would be on busy days where we were – more... under staffed and sometimes weren't able to meet customers expectations, but also the more enjoyable part was building a rapport with many customers who often stopped by just to say hello even drop off lunch for us. – less
