The covid-19 pandemic has corporate thinking at Staples tap dancing around local rules regarding employee safety. While Pennsylvania's Governor Wolf mandates that everyone within six feet of another person must wear a mask, Staples employees are coming under the wrath of non-masked customers demanding their "god-given right" to shop bare-faced. Most use the state's loophole exempting masks for "health reasons" even though there is no proof of a medical problem. Some employees have been threatened. If Staples isn't supporting safe practices for its most precious commodity, the employees, it could face legal action if an employee is hospitalized or dies.
Staples could require all customers to masks while in the store, or shop online with curbside delivery.

No I never was drug tested however they need to because some employees will come to work high or under the influence of some drugs or possibly alcohol.

Professional interview. I was asked to role play and try to sale a warranty for a chair. I was asked why I wanted to work for Staples and why retail. As a sales associate he offered me $9.00 an hour at 25 hours a week. He said if I am a good employee who does my job well that he will want me to work longer hours as I would be a valued employee for the business. Every employee was friendly and welcoming. The manager was nice and wanted to make sure I would be dedicated before hiring me. All companies want to make sure they are hiring someone who has proven they want to work and not someone temporarily.

You can be 16 to work, but all you can do is load the bailer. To operate the bailer you have to be 18, so I recommend 18+
