Good company with room for advancement.
Inventory Specialist (Former Employee), Lewisville, TXJuly 10, 2014
Pros: make my own schedule, great friends, plenty of freedom, and good benefits.
Cons: missed lunches, short staff, and late night freight nights
Good Company to work for that gave me the opportunity to grow within the company, as well as, give me the freedom to make my own decisions. The hardest part was just never really having enough employees so having to pull the majority of the weight to make up for the lack of help. My favorite part but also the hardest part of my job was doing damage – more... returns to vendors and to the warehouse because it was tedious but also pretty rewarding to see all the work you had done in front of you. – less

Just not the culture for me
Operations Manager (Former Employee), Atlanta, GAJuly 9, 2014
Pros: rarely worked weekends
Cons: the culture was just not for me
Staples would be a good place to work for those not looking for advancement. It has little in place for new leadership to blossom. There is little to no bench strength given that they do not develop associates to go to the next level. The pay is very competitive and it is challenging.

high turn over, impossible work load
TEAM SUPERVISOR (Current Employee), orlando floridaJuly 7, 2014
Pros: the employee discount is only 10%
Cons: high turn over and terrible job culture
staples job culture is to run with minimal staff (2-3 people per shift).
it is not possible to give customer service to every guest and handle the oppositional tasks of the store with this amount of employees. In the last year I have been through over 50 employees.....high turn over rate. They work you to death

At times overwhelming, but that's Back-To-School's fault
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Hamden, CTJuly 5, 2014
Pros: saw friends, teachers, and classmates while working there.
Cons: at times unpleasant customers, overwhelming lines.
Like any retail job (I would assume), there were busy days and there were slow days. On slow days, I would be able to spend my time helping customers in the aisles or restocking the shelves in between turns at the register. On busy days, I would only really be able to help out at the registers.

The only real negative aspects of the job were the savings – more... passes that we had to plug, the infrequent unpleasant customers and the Back-To-School rushes. Once I figured out how to describe the passes in my own words rather than the "standard" information, I became more comfortable pitching them to customers in line. And when Back-To-School season kicked off, the lines could last for hours at a time, which was overwhelming from time to time when people would get impatient. – less

Typical corporate problems, but a good company on the whole
Inventory Supervisor (Former Employee), The Colony, TXJuly 3, 2014
Pros: very customer oriented.
Cons: bloated, usless middle- and top-management
Two positive things stand out about Staples: 1) They offer (limited) insurance for part-timers, whioh is how I started out. and 2) As a supervisor/manager-on-duty, I was given an amazing range of leeway in making things right for the customer.

The downside is that, in typical corporate fashion, the home office is packed with out-of-touch bureaucrats – more... and top executives that only care about their golden parachutes. Also, the pay stinks for store associates.

Still, it's a great place for customers, which made it easier to work there. – less

Finalizing Fulfillment Associate (Current Employee), Secaucus, NJJuly 3, 2014
The company is very successful and is a great place to grow. A typical day at work is me finalizing and completing orders to have them shipped out. Our managers are a great help they join in to help us complete the work. All the coworkers seem to get along with each other. We are basically a family. The hardest part of the job is having to complete – more... everything by a certain time. But we manage to get it done. The best part of the job is just knowing we completed all the work and made a customer happy. – less

Disribution center set-up for busy company.
3rd Shift Lean Replenishment (Former Employee), Beloit, WIJuly 3, 2014
Pros: free lunches occasionally, free gifts at x-mas
Cons: all male management, too too many football and sports metaphors.
Was hired to help set up the distribution warehouse for the go live date. The hardest part of the job was in the beginning when there wasn't specific jobs set up yet. Third shift stocking was easy to learn and you always had enough work to keep you busy all night.

Awesome first job.
Cashier (Former Employee), Irving, TXJune 29, 2014
I was still in high school when I got this part time job. My GM was amazing, he let me bring my homework to work with me so I could do my homework and not have to stay up late, he would help me with my homework, and has always been so understanding when it came to family emergencies. I loved working there.
