I enjoy working for Staples very much. Although it has no relation to the filed of addictions, it keeps me busy and around people and the public. I enjoy working alone or as a team member and I feel I go above and beyond for this company as far as the scheduling goes and the availability I have made myself available for at short- notice; mainly. The management treats me with dignity and respect and speaks to me as an equal. They have sat me down 2 times and said that I was going to be promoted to the head of my department which is office supplies and they have recognized and appreciated all of my hard work that I have put in for them. I don't get paid much but I do enjoy having a schedule which is set for the employees each Thursday and I like the consistency of the work I provide and the work that is expected of me. The hardest part of the job, I feel, is coming up with alternative ideas for certain projects or items the customers may be looking for. I find that it can be challenging at times but it forces me to be creative and to show the customer that the services I am providing for them during their visit to Staples- be a pleasant and enjoyable one! My coworkers are all very helpful and work extremely well as a team. We all get along very well and I am very comfortable working with them- we have a lot of fun and laughs throughout our shifts, usually. They are a majority of high school and college students so sometimes I feel a little "old" but I can keep right up with them with the energy and charisma which I try to portray to both my coworkers and to the customers. I enjoy each different parts of my job but like working the cash register the least because once you are assigned that position for however long they might keep me there for, you cannot leave and attend to customers or show customers were certain products/ items may be located or cannot help them with the furniture, etc. because you are not allowed to leave the register and move throughout the floor.
