If you like to be taken advantage of and work with management who favour bad employees over good this is the place to go. I’ve worked here for a couple years and it’s not worth the mental breakdowns
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.
Tech experience, retail experience, not very physically demanding
Not the best benefits for regular associates
