Cashier/Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Whittier, CA – October 17, 2018
Loved working there, just wasn't enough hours to be had and customer interactions were often negative because they were just shrewd business people. I don't blame them for it but for some, it was not easy to handle
Upper management is very poor. Worse I've seen and I was with the company for 18 years. Unrealistic help from the district manager. Newly hired upper management have zero training and doesn't hold standards of the core beliefs.
The company talks about how they value work and personal life balance, but the amount of work you are expected to accomplish cannot be completed in a 40-hour work week. There is a lot of pressure to work long hours.
be prepared to hit the ground running as soon as you clock in . fast paced Warehouse environment Great Managers clean break room hardest part of the job is pulling the large picking carts great coworkers

How can you go about someone who did their job by completing it and yet having to stick around to help the other departments who lack in the work area, or are slow pickers, or just individuals who lack at everything because this job isn't for everyone. Staples has a thing called BPH, Boxes per hour. meaning you have to scan and pick a quantity to meet their standards. Now there would be individuals who surpassed their standard goal and their where those who did not but they still didn't care about making the job fair to everyone. The culture area of this company was nice people, but there was some racist people inside the company.

Customers were probably the "hardest" part: you get a variety of them with odd problems, or just didn't know how to take care of their computers. But, it comes with the work so I can't really complain.
Cashier (Former Employee) – West Burlington, IA – October 15, 2018
Would not recommend this place to anyone.. if you did your job and they had to send someone home I was the one.. then I would see most of them just sitting there and talking..I also was asked to come in and work on my day off and I wouldn’t even get my break until the person that Was going home had there’s.. when they were coming back from break when I was clocking in.. I was expected to do more work than others.. they would have product for mark down and if I didn’t get it done it would be put in the backroom for me until the morning.. the night person didn’t have to do it.. only thing is that if I was working the shift I would have to get it done..
Paid vacation after 1 year, discounts for purchase made
May have to go home after you get there in 5 minutes.
Don't go there... while it may not be so bad for other people my experience was not usual. I was demoted from doing the thing I loved to do cashier which was not why I went to college to get a degree in Computer Science.

General Manager (Former Employee) – OHIO – October 15, 2018
Initially you think it would be a great job, but NO... Your hired to do a handful of things... Then you find out, you have to do it ALL. And with the WORST training I have ever seen. The training doesn't even come CLOSE to what the job entails. Plan on spending EVERY single day and night unless you come to a store that is appropriately staffed and they are somewhat able to do the job. If not, pack your bags and move into the store. Because that is what it feels like. The overtime that salaried employees have to do isn't worth the pay, because you have NO LIFE at all. The upper management is an ABSOLUTE joke. Some have no idea on how to even run a store. It is a JOKE............. MOVE ON to something else rather than this place. Won't be long before they shut there doors like a lot of the other retailers. Buy ONLINE... it is cheaper.
Copy and Print Associate (Former Employee) – Grass Valley, CA – October 14, 2018
As much as I enjoyed what I did, the job was very stressful, although with the fast pace, days went by pretty quick. Being in copy center, we have to go above and beyond our duties and do any other position the manager asked such as stalking, cashiering etcetera.
One manager was almost always rude and took his bad attitude out on employees
Special Order (Former Employee) – Orange city Iowa – October 14, 2018
Work hard, Do not make friends with managers. Keep your head down and stay out of anything you hear. Job is interesting. Be there to do a job not to make friends.
Good benefits after 6 months can work from home
Now the company is all about $ not the people, they keep letting people go, Hiring new people instead of promoting from within, After years of working I watched other coworkers being picked on by management.
Part-Time Cashier (Former Employee) – North Conway, NH 03860 – October 12, 2018
I was hired with no retail experience and put on 3 hr shifts because I could not keep up with high volume the first week, never given an opportunity to improve or use prior computer skills. Never given opportunity to work on stocking counters or other functions.
