Productive, good environment, good management.
Easy Tech Associate (Current Employee), Madison, ALApril 22, 2014
A typical day at Staples includes organizing, cleaning, customer service, and explanation of the products that are sold in the store. I have learned a lot about working in a competitive sales environment, and a lot about working well with coworkers. The management is good for the most part, although sometimes when there is a problem between two coworkers – more... they don't always address the problem until you bring it up several times. The people that work at Staples, other than myself, are usually good and fun people, although on occasion someone gets hired that does not get along with anyone else in the building. The hardest part of the job is the occasion when we are understaffed and it gets really busy. When this happens, the customers are mad, the staff is stressed, and no one is happy.The most enjoyable part of working at Staples is the atmosphere there. We feel more like a family than we do coworkers. – less

Tech sales and mobile supervisor
Easytech Sales Supervisor (Current Employee), Carlisle, PAApril 20, 2014
Pros: learn something new everyday, interact with public
Cons: staples is in a restructering phase.. not sure about job security in the distant future
A day can consist of only talking to customers about possible networking solutions, pc upgrades and repairs, even being in control of the store in a General manager aspect.

I love being able to move about through out my day and engage with new and exciting people. My career with staples has sharpened my skill with problem solving, patience and team – more... building.

Sales are always a great thing to push for with your company but you don't want to pressure the customer just to make yourself look good.

The hardest part of the day is not having enough time to dedicate to every little project you have, but who doesn't like a good challenge. – less

Seasonal Cashier (Former Employee), Alexandria, VAApril 17, 2014
Pros: manager on duty at all time.
Cons: no health benefits
- A typical day at work would be restocking, doing cashier.
- I learned a lot of school items names.
- The management is really good. There are about three or four manager on duty per day so anything happens, there is a manager that you can ask for help.
-The hardest part of the job is restocking where you have to put back everything that the people – more... didn't want to get anymore by the time they check out and just leave it everywhere. You have to put them back to where they belong which is really hard when you don't memorize the items in each aisle.
- The most enjoyable part of this job would be getting to know people. – less
