Avis d'employé sur Bureau en gros
Mostly a waste of time, unless its just a 'while-I'm-in-school' job
Generally a stressful experience no matter which department, in technology people will harangue you for their own lack of informity, and even when you have a satisfying experience helping the one sane person you met that shift then you're obliged to push services they don't need or the corporate program that's being waved around this week. Could've been the good coworkers and single good supervisor that kept me there for a few years while finishing up at Algonquin, but looking back it was so much more stress than it was worth. I learned something about most everything from print to tech to aisles, but it was print that was the worst. No one appreciates the work that goes into that department, not managers, not customers. A thankless position without adequate pay or recognition. It was a supervisor kept that place running singlehandedly, and without him I would've quit as soon as I joined the Print Team.With the advent of Covid, social distancing and increased cleaning and face coverings became the norm. Well, I'll be honest, there was no time made available to clean. It was not the safest feeling in the world coming to work, where customers are not listening to guidelines, and then we aren't given the time to ensure we aren't getting whatever they have. That aside I wouldn't apply unless you're out of other options.

they pay minimum wage, better than volunteering right?
Lack of ability to train, to organize and implement a retail experience, lack of ability to responsibly follow covid safety and cleaning procedures.
STAPLES in Saskatoon was a good place to work. The managers were pretty reasonable and I got along well with my coworkers. Sometimes it could be stressful, especially when dealing with impatient or irascible customers, or during BTS (Back to School) season. Also the wages weren't great--they started me at just about minimum wage from what I remember. But as I was only working part-time while going to school that was fine for me.
Good coworkers, managers, generally fun work
Weird hours, pay wasn't great
Not worth it, support is not here. Will pretend to be there and when it matters they don’t help. Extremely high demands to meet sale goals and zero reward for doing it not even a real pat on the back
Good work life absolutely nothing else
You need to do everything and no one cares or thanks you for going way above and beyond
