If you want to get started in retail this is the place to go. Easy to get hired and easy to move around within the company once in the door. Lots of opportunity to learn printing services, tech services and general merchandise. Management was a bit confused and was going through a lot of turn over.
Customer service The few managers seem to ruin the experience for everyone else Not a great place to work if you want to feel valued as an employee Benefits are good, Retail is changing , but not for the better. No overtime available due to COVID but occasionally when needed Job security if you do what your job description asks you to do Have to be able to have a “strong” backbone when it comes to customers who think they can treat you badly. Being able to smile and have the customer is always right attitude..
Occasional lunches, a few parties ie Christmas ..
Speaking the truth gets you nowhere

Great place to work. Training could be better - not as structured as other retailers Awesome co-workers Wear a lot of different hats and learn great skills GMs are out of the store a lot and don't offer a lot of in-store support, therefore, leaving a lot on the plate for the rest of the management team. Then they take credit for all going well in the store but point fingers when something is wrong.
First my boss sexually harassed me for 2 years before I finally got a witness that would help me. Upper management did walk the loser out of the store BUT not too long after I bought a computer on employee purchase plan and a month later my night shift premium was cancelled. I quit! Without sending me a bill or an account number to pay they sent me to collections. Very bad experience
Worked there for a month, it was a temporary job for the staples warehouse in Calgary only available for 1 month
It was a good job for the month during summer for students, it was a safe environment and everyone was friendly. It was a small job to have some money in your account for the summer.
I have been working at Staples part-time for more than a year Pros amazing people to work with, it always has a good environment when you walk in the front doors. Few managers are amazing. Cons managers put stress and problems onto their staff at high peak time (i.e. Christmas, back to school n few managers are really worst their.
During my time here I found that it was an unfavourable place to work at. At the location I was at they payed no one other that Supervisors and Managers more than Minimal wage, as a warehouse worker (Shipping and Receiving) I found this to be most difficult that I was being payed minimum wage to work the most labouring job at the location. The "Team" we had was only a skeletal crew and the management was such a micromanagement team that it made employees not enjoy showing up for work. During back to school season we didn't have the coverage that the company has lots of time to hire and be prepared for.
I was not given a reasonable explanation explanation as to why I was being let go l honestly didn’t feel I was given a proper training I didn’t really feel comfortable at all around any manager when asking for help or having any type of question. I did feel uncomfortable at times to ask for help.
I found this job depends heavily on management. I've had some managers who are more relatable, and others who breathe down your back with every move you make. Didn't feel very appreciated by most of management. I'd say overall, not terrible, but if you can help it, don't stay for more than two years. It's at that point where they try to overwork and underpay, and really start to take advantage of you. Job is very secure, but unless you dedicate your life to the job, you will not advance. People are great, but you have to break through that initial cliquey sort of stage.
So I worked there for a handful of years. Worked in several stores, and was promoted a few times, even took a demotion when I moved across the country. The quality of work seemed to change dramatically from location to location. I had worked with management and GM's who were FANTASTIC - best manager's ive worked with to date. I also have worked for management that was utterly useless in application. I left the company due to management essentially pushing me out the door by having unreasonable requirements, that actually negatively impacted how I dealt with customers, and were unwilling to listen when you mentioned this fact. Head office used to be pretty lax about stuff, we used to be able to bend the rules slightly... Now, they want cookie cutter stores where everything is 100% identical to eachother. I used to be one of the top sales people in the district. Since then I'd lost my passion for sales, with more and more metrics and robotic conversations being expected of me each day.
No two days are the same, benefits package was pretty comprehensive, discounts on tech is always nice.
Bad work/life balance often requiring home based unpaid training, head office is becoming more demanding
As a tech associate a typical day starts with tracking down inventory that is scattered around half the store and physically confirming that we have the number of items specified. While doing this you are to also assist customers with finding products they need. Upon finishing the inventory you are to pull new inventory and stock shelves with it while still helping customers. As the day comes to a close you are to clean up items left on the floor and at the bottom of shelves as well as bringing product to the front of the shelf to make the shelves look orderly.
Great community of coworkers, the store environment was friendly, and it was easy to get to since the location was so central. I worked In the isles department stocking and front facing the shelves as well as assisting customers and filling in for cashiers.
Not very in depth training program
They we well to work with and the managers at the time were quite responsible. I got to move into the Tech repair side and be part time retail floor. The hardest part was dealing with people but if you can learn that, you can apply it anywhere.
