Print & Marketing Associate (Current Employee) – Ithaca, NY – March 29, 2017
Staples is a fun place to work but there was little room for advancement and learning opportunities are limited as we can only spend so long working with customers. We are also limited by our software and so are incapable of doing tasks that should be simple and not cost much.
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – March 29, 2017
Great company to work for. Provided great incentives and benefits. The only reason it did not work out for me is that i wanted to advance faster then the availability allowed. My passion is to follow the American dream and get rich through hard work and taking care of my family. I need a company to help me accomplish this dream.
Good pay, benefits, plenty of hours
Bad management, coworkers that didnt respect management, no advancement oppurtunities
Operations Supervisor (Current Employee) – Scottsbluff, NE – March 28, 2017
Fair, but with this location its hard to receive help from higher up to maintain store readiness for many challenges. Many challenges are ahead for this location, unless they received proper guiding and or better management. If you need a summer job, this store is not the location for you. Too many johns and janes put little to no effort once hired.
Decent place to work while pursuing higher education.
Copy and Print Associate (Current Employee) – Berkeley, CA – March 28, 2017
staples is a decent place to work if you're a student. there is chances of advancement if you want longer shifts and no available time outside of work. Copy and print is stressful to say the least but you do learn lots of great skills that can be used outside of work. Decent management, cares when it comes to things like , not so much when it comes to you actually being able to take a break. May wait 4-5 hours because of no coverage.
A typical work day is working throughout the floor helping the customer and making sure the product is in the correct spot and priced correctly. There are four main areas of the store. Easy Tech, Copy Center, Sales floor, and register.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Cold Spring, KY – March 27, 2017
I worked there for a year and it was a great job! But once they hired a bunch of employees with no experience my hours were cut and I found out they were making more then me after a year of employment, I decided to move on from the company.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – March 27, 2017
a regular day at work is productive i try to do my best with learning more so i can assist more customers. i learned how to stock and also how to be a cashier this job helped me with social skills and leadership skills. the work place culture is like the rest of NYC you'll have a mix of hard working people from every ethnicity. the hardest part would be the back to school season because of the rush and all the product that have to pack out. the most enjoyable part is having a great manager and very helpful co-workers i couldn't ask for a better team.
Cashier/Sales (Current Employee) – Front Royal, VA – March 27, 2017
I love working with the public. From the time I get in I have a chance to really help people make the right decisions in purchansing, answering questions, and just communicating with the public.
I have learned the art of selling a product in a fast pace.
The hardest part of my job is being on my feet all day, but I maintain.
The manager is great and really works with you on the schedule.
I have learned several new responsibilities that Staples requires such as: ordering online for customers, using the hand held to inquire on several different things the customer might need information on, processing damaged products, recycling ink, pricing and signage, and many more things.
Enjoyed working with retail customers. Management support was great, corporate support was not good.
Customer Service Lead (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – March 27, 2017
Local store manager was great. The support from the District and Regional levels was not good. Very little support from the District Manager to achieve corporate goals. District level expectations were not supported by training nor were staffing hours conducive to maintaining store readiness, i.e. displays, stock rooms, overall store look and cleanliness.
Lack of training and freedom to resolve customer issues.
