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

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.

Challenging and great place to work but upside is getting bleak
General Manager (Current Employee), Colorado Springs, CO – October 13, 2014
Staples is a great place to work. My DM is a great person to work for and makes it easy to come to work every day. Labor is starting to get tight which makes every day problems more and more challenging. Staples is starting to shrink which is eliminating opportunities to advance. Overall great company to work for but need to start looking at other opportunities.
A typical day at work would involve a morning meeting followed by 1 hour of checking and responding to emails from assigned accounts, then 2 hours of outbound sales calls to your account base. Followed by lunch and 3 hours in the afternoon of outbound sales calls to account base and answer any emails that come in throughout the day.
