Stressful
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Cambridge, MAJuly 6, 2017
Worked as a cashier, the shifts are about 8 hours long and you will be on your feet the entire time. Often will be dealing with extremely rude people but that's where customer services come to play.

Lot's of room for advancment
General Manager (Former Employee) –  Commack NYJuly 6, 2017
Staples has a lot of locations and thus a lot of room for advancement. The company puts a high value on people development. The job requires a lot of long hours at the General Manager level due to a high number of metrics required to be hit with dwindling resources.

ok place to work for a while
Copy & Print Sales and Production Expert (Former Employee) –  Vestal, NYJuly 5, 2017
Was a copy center expert - they pay is so-so but for the amount of work you do, you should be paid twice that. The copy center is always poorly staffed and they have insane goals.
Pros
ok place to work

Very good
Breakpack Associate 1 (Current Employee) –  Coppell, TXJuly 4, 2017
Great company to work for. They tend to do little things to show their employees they are appreciated. There are several that recognize employee excellence. The benefits are good and the great place to work events that are planned regularly are superb. Management appear to be competent and very helpful.
Pros
employee incentives, weekends off
Cons
short breaks

It's retail
Sales (Former Employee) –  Cartersville, GAJuly 4, 2017
It's retail. Extremely hard work for hardly comparable pay. Hard floors, customers range from good to completely rude, and expectations of arbitrary sales that mostly annoy customers rather than benefit them.

Productive, laid-back, and relaxing work environment
Cashier and Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  East Elmhurst, NYJuly 4, 2017
The work place was very laid back. Many customers were Spanish-speaking, but I did not have difficulty assisting them as I only speak English. The team was very friendly, always helping each other out.
