Avis d'employé sur Bureau en gros
A good first step in technology
The experience I gained from working here is what made it worth while. Having a chance to get more experience with Computer Repair and Software was my main goal and it delivered. A good starting job, but I wouldn't want to stay here forever. The typical day consisted of helping customers on the floor, putting out new signs and taking down expired ones, operating cash registers, putting stock on the shelves or in overstock areas, and for myself repairing computers with hardware or software issues. Management changed throughout my two years there. Certain managers were excellent to work with and very supportive, almost like family. Other managers and supervisors were lazy and overall not helpful, leaving you to clean up their mess. The hardest part of the job was dealing with the mess of the lazy managers and employees mentioned above would leave behind as well as dealing with customers that were very vocal. Keeping calm was essential to cooling down those situations, which I managed to get very good at. Overall Staples wasn't a bad company to work for. I got a lot of experience running the repair center, and it felt great to watch our tech center grow with the changes I made.

Not the best benefits for regular associates
I would recommend Staples as a first job. Nothing about the job itself is obtuse or unfair. Management is good, moving chairs and printers around is a nice workout, and it's a relatively low intensity way to learn how to deal with customers. However, despite having no commission, you will be worked as hard as a laborer and full-time salesman combined, while only receiving a part time position (with full time hours) and minimum wage. Not to mention how much specialized knowledge you'll need to be doing sales, it's a wonder they can call themselves "entry level" and pay like it.
