breakpack (Former Employee), orlando, fl. – August 28, 2015
Pros: did not have to clock out for 20 minute break
Cons: health insurance
I have never had so many issues with a company that I have worked with. Managers don't want to listen to the employees, they never had morning shift openings full time, part time hours were not good and the pay was ridiculous.
Copy and Print Supervisor (Current Employee), Clemmons, NC – August 28, 2015
Pros: Weekly Wages, Multi tasking as an Individual, Confidential
Cons: No Motivation for Team Work, Benefits
I live and work in a fast paced work environment which sometimes require teamwork. Being a Supervisor can be challenging but also rewarding. Customer Service is the key to making or breaking a company. – more... The upmost lifting part of my days are producing quality work that the customer will be satisfied with and the vision they had pictured. Creativity has a role to achieve the impossible. Multi tasking, juggling everyday activities, supervising and handling everything thing can be stressful but its all a Journey. The Journey is all ways exciting. – less

Sales Associate (Former Employee), Gilroy, CA – August 28, 2015
Pros: Fun place to work.
Cons: Little room for growth.
For every job you start as a seed looking for a way to grow and improve. At Staples your shirt color defines your ability to move upwards in the company. And the clouds of micromanagement loom overhead, be prepared for breath down your neck. To ensure the utmost quality experience you will be tasked with reporting in every day for not meeting your quota of sign ups. Enjoy the world of retail.
General Manager (GM) (Former Employee), Chattanooga, TN – August 27, 2015
When I was there I was surrounded with great management and as I went thru my time with them, the great managers left and the not so great ones took their spots. It was not a competitive company so much as a combative one. I made many friends while I was there and now, 10years later they are all gone and Staples is just Staples.
Senior Technical Analyst (Former Employee), St. Louis, MO – August 27, 2015
Staples is a good place to work.
Typical days there were filled with project work and tech support work for end users. Depending on the project work, it could fluctuate from 100% project work/0% tech support to 20% project work/80% tech support.
Staples updated my networking skills tremendously and I am grateful for that.
Management in GI was great and really worked with you.
Copy Center Supervisor (Former Employee), Bangor, ME – August 26, 2015
Staples was a really solid company to work for. Management was supportive and listened to employees at the store level. I was allowed to run my department and always felt supported by the manager and assistant manager. I only moved on due to a lack of advancement opportunity in my area of the state.
Expert Certified Tech (Former Employee), Hudson, NY – August 26, 2015
At the time I was there we had a crew that just blended great together. Almost all has changed since then but very happy I had my experience there. Fast paced and pressure to meet numbers for district. However, still better that most retail stories I've heard.
