typical day at work is assisting customers and seeing who needs help with a product. If there are no customers walk around and work on facing or put products out on the floor.
They don't respect their workers or their opinion. They don't appreciate the time and effort you put in and management is useless at recognizing your commitment.. I don't think I have ever worked at a place where I watched new employees become disgruntled in such a short period of time.
It's nice having people who are friendly to work with. Though for the amount of time we have been left under-staffed you'd think they'd pay us more considering we still manage to achieve all of our sales goals. While they do offer what is called the "team bonus" it hardly amounts to much at the end of the day. It also doesn't help that some of the systems that they use are outdated to a point where it makes working even a challenge. They run their terminals off of computers that should have been left in the 2000's resulting in numerous slow-downs, and their kronos scheduling system is the worst. Constantly not working for mobile devices. I loved my time there though, I just wish they'd give us better compensation and better tools to work with.
I learned a lot especially as an outside hire. The recent transformation of the company has led to many positive changes. A typical day would consist of checking metrics, seeing what goals we're meeting and who requires coaching where. Following that, there are a number of reports that need to be done to ensure protocol is being followed. I also need to check with any changes that have come in overnight and ensure the team is in the know. A number of hours are also spent on the sales floor ensuring the store is kept at very high standards, that stock levels are constantly met (reaching out to vendors when needed) and keeping it clean. Meeting our loyal customers and reaching out to connect with any new businesses in the area to see what we can do to create a relationship from which both parties benefits is a key part of the position. I also take part in the hiring process. I work closely with our technician and oversee work done on customers computers. The position itself is fairly demanding but also rewarding. I have learned a lot about both the company and myself over the last few years working here. The company has fairly good benefits and the workplace culture can vary from location to location, but on the whole, it's generally positive.

Great workplace, fun staff. Management was terrible and overall lazy. Did not promote a healthy environment for their employees at the location I worked at.
I got a job at Staples while still in high school. It gave me a great first experience in customer service, printing, and dealing with customers. It was a great first job.
Great working environment
Bad product ordering services
Everyone worked cohesively as a team which was good to experience. Sales is very performance based, although you may be extremely knowledgeable if you cannot sell an items you are not as useful.
Short term goals
Its alright, could pay Copy centre associates more for the work load they have opposed to a simple cashier. Management needs to be a bit kinder to the different associates in different parts of the store.
Trash pay for Copy Centre
A typical day would to do a morning checklist, consisting of security of product on the floor. During this time I would also take the time to take a look around my department and identify problem areas, stock is low or missing, product not properly secured with security wraps etc.. I learned a great deal while working at staples, the biggest of which is being able to keep your calm while under pressure. This is one of many skills that working retail can give you. fast consistent decision making, customer first mentality, working with others to complete a single task. dividing up work based on co-workers strengths and weaknesses. At my location it was the coworkers that made working their fun and worthwhile, coming into work knowing that no matter how bad of a day it could be, that there is someone there to help is what makes retail worth it
Customers talk to you like you don't know anything, no chances for advancement, very little job security, sometimes management was very poor depending on location. Only good thing I have to say about the place is I enjoyed working with the other associates.
Learn great interpersonal skills
No job security, no advancement opportunities, get poorly treated by customers and sometimes management
Retail...management was unprofessional, often bordering on harassment despite company training- poisoned work environment. Pay was horrible and didn't keep up with inflation. They don't give out good reviews to anyone because they don't want to pay you the extra 25 cents it would entail. Hard to leave on time because of bag checks that you might have to wait 20 minutes or more for. I loved the work, worked hard, did my time, but was relieved to leave.
I could write a book.
Being a Technology Associate at Staples was by far the best job I've ever had. The average day consisted of helping customers find what they needed; answering questions about our products and services; taking inventory; setting up, organizing, and updating displays; taking in customer computers to be serviced; working on cash; assembling some furniture; and updating prices as flyers changed over every week. The hours were flexible, the benefits were great and quick to be implemented, the managers were kind and easy to talk to, and I really enjoyed working with my colleagues. Though I found the sales aspect of the job a bit tiresome, as I don't believe I'm suited to that field of work, I had a great time and would certainly work there again.
Discounts, free food, positive environment
They seem to want to keep most people at part time hours, and the pay below management is minimum wage or as close as makes no difference. Showing a ton of initiative and skill can get you advancement in terms of hours and position, but don't expect too much. It is retail, expect to be treated like the scum of the earth by every person who enters the store.
Great managers where I work, good job security
Stuck part time, minimum wage, very hard work for little reward, disrespect from clients
A typical day at work was when I had to get everything done by the end of the day with a lot of pressure on my back. The hardest part I had once was when I had to work 12 hours in one ay. Where there was a lot of things that I had to be done before that shirt was over. The most enjoyable part of the part is meaning new people.
It was a great experience working there
The hours were sometimes were to long
Strong training Strong family values management really support growth and a learning environment coworkers were awesome and very helpful. job equality was hard to deal with coworkers and management team were awesome
all the shifts were fast pace and hard to maintain that in a full time capacity.
Arriving at work 20mins prior to opening time, the manager on duty would give a run through of the districts stats and number of the previous weeks, as well as our goals for the upcoming week. While putting stock away, customers will approach and ask questions to further inquire about products and services. Other co-workers are always very helpful for this job is based on a team environment. The most enjoyable part of the job would have to be the face to face interactions with customers, as well as the great overall positivism from the entire team. The hardest part of the job would be learning the use of each product in the store.
heavy lifting at times
