Je n’ai jamais vraiment reçu de formation pour effectuer tout le travail que je devais accomplir, ce qui m’a amenée à démissionner après presqu’un an. Pas d’encadrement, d’aide ou de support.
Terminer tôt la fin de semaine
Management needs to take diversity training. There are daily comments of stupidity in meetings and men remain dominant. HR are very strict - it’s a helicopter culture - not a trust working from home. Employees work very long hours often through lunch - meetings are endless. The current merger is a mess - a lot of details are outstanding leaving teams with unnecessary stress. Communication is lacking and could reassure employees. Stores are disconnected from head office. There’s no allowance for equipment for at home employees. Even a year on employees are working at kitchen tables - Stapes sells the essentials but doesn’t look after it’s own team.
Salary is competitive, advancement opportunities
Long hours, unreliable management, lack of communication, no working from home support
I just want to say Staples is like a second family to me. I have been working there for 15 years now . It's great ,knowing I have job that is there for me. There is a lot to learn here. I am still learning ,working at Stapes Warehouse because of lockdown. I still have a full time job. It's interesting to learn how online products are being distributed. It's a lot more labour work but I am understanding more now.
Treat employees well. Lots of incentives to keep you motivated. On going learning and training. Team atmosphere and support when needed . Ability to grow your skills and knowledge.
Bonuses, lunches, contents.
Can be stressful but have support.
It is good if you need a part time job or an starting point. After 4 months of full time Woking, they did not give any benefits and they called my job just a TEMPORARY CONTRACT.
Distracted work and minimum wage.

Staples is good company to work for if you are starting out your career. It is a company driven by processes and results. You will get all the tools needed in order to perform your duties.
Great spirited company, Freindly, you always have support with any and everything you need in and out of work.
You always feel the pressure of having to do produce, Sometimes you feel your best is not good enough
I was with Staples for about 6 years. In that time I worked at 2 of the stores. I was a cashier, aisles associate, technology associate and a technician, all without a lay raise. I was working for minimum wage the whole time. The companie's equipment barely works and is very out dated, there is next to no training and moving up in the company is a joke. But I worked with amazing people. I deem working there worth it just for the people. But it should very much be a temporary job. Its not a bad job to start with, there are definitely worse options but don't expect amazing pay. Or for the job to be fair.
Pay is a joke.
I was caring for my mother, I was forced to work weekend. Ultimately I was given a choice to give the hours they wanted or leave. They even wrote the wrong reason in my employement record saying it was mutual, when it wasn't. After dealing with personal issues I had notify the ceo of major flaws that had happen at store levels, i was pushed out of the compagny for no good reason.
hr will not care what happens in you're life, you have to have open availability
Staples has spent the last several years cutting costs at the expense of quality of life for their employees, especially management. I worked a minimum of 50-60 hours per week, something that is not at all uncommon for most Staples managers. The overtime is unpaid, and no lieu time was given. I worked in a store that operated 16 hours a day with only myself and the general manager, meaning we never worked together. The third management position was intentionally left unfilled by the Divisional Manager, seemingly to reduce operating costs. My manager was unable to observe my performance to provide me with coaching, and I was unable to observe how he performed his job. This created a situation in which I felt unable to grow into a new position with the company. Many of the managers I knew had no work/life balance, and health problems were rampant. In my exit interview, the HR rep I spoke with was completely unsurprised at my reasons for leaving (overwork, mainly) and said that the HR department had been hearing the same thing a lot lately. I was at least the 9th manager in Toronto to quit that year. The work itself might have been okay had anyone been given the resources they needed to succeed. Instead, executive management policies left store management and associates alike feeling stressed, unappreciated, and taken advantage of.
HR won't even talk to you until they have a copy of an up-to-date Driver's Abstract, which is immediately asking for private/personal information before you even have your first chance to ask questions about whether or not you're even interested in the position. Look elsewhere.
Hr, Management, Low Wages, Long Hours
Working with staples is an add to your resume and experience as it is a big company to start with in Canada. I have learnt alot from the team. We are like brothers and sister and everyone one is helping the other to understand the whole process. It is my pleasure to work there.
I worked as a lead hand running a department for 8 years and never promoted even though I was " being groomed". Its easy to remain stagnant in your role. There was no opportunity to grow or advancement. I was happy to leave under the current management.
Working at Staples will feel like a chore once you get past training.TRAINING: Training itself, is a lot to take in but the trainer does try to add some fun to it. It is nerve racking the first time you deal with customers and are not 100% sure how to run the systems, but they do have individuals there to help you.After the first part of training is done, you are on the floor taking calls which is pretty straight forward but can get very repetitive.After a few weeks, you go back to training for Print and Marketing (Staples Copy & Print) which is more complicated. You are only able to see very basic information about customers orders. Anything more complex, you will need to reach out to CSHD (Customer Service Help Desk)Once training is done you are somewhat on your own (at least it will feel that way at the start) but the managers and supervisors are there at the start (If they tell you something once remember it, they will get annoyed if you repeat inquiries more than twice)SHIFTS: Beware of shifts sometimes (Hours are 7:30am - 8pm) if you get multiple consecutive shifts, email your manager with the inquiryPAY: Pay is not the greatest (after taxes approx $13.50 - $14.00 an hour) sometimes it does not seem worth it for the volume of calls you may take in a day. Calls at times seem like they do not stop (You WILL feel like you are alone on phones even though management says you are not)WORK/LIFE BALANCE: Is average at best, especially if you have an early shift. Beware, if you have a shift from 11:30am - 8pm, the work life balance combo goes out the window, and all - plus...
Cafeteria, VTO (when offered), Internet Access, Some Helpful Individuals
Very Little Work/Life Balance, Numbers Driven Company, Little Advancement Opportunities, Buggy and Disorganized Systems
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
En général, la vente au détail ça devient de plus en plus difficile, Staples ne fait pas exception. Question de rentabilité, la pression retombe quotidiennement sur les employés. Les tâches sont très nombreuses et variées et bien que le client reste la priorité, des dizaines de tâches sont laissées allées chaque jour, on ne fait que le plus urgent. Quelqu'un d'autonome, efficace, diplomate saura avancé chez Staples. Chaque magasin a sa saveur, selon son équipe de direction. Solution simple serait de traîner un peu dans un magasin et d'avoir un expérience avec un/une directrice et prendre le pouls de la succursale.
Possibilités d'avancements, On ne s'ennuie jamais
Salaire, Charge de travail (+ en +), Communication, équilibre vie/famille, augmentation annuelle risible
Cet emploi m'a appris beaucoup de choses. En effet, j'ai développé mes qualités de vendeurs ainsi que ma communication en entrant en contact avec clients ainsi qu'en travaillant avec les employés. J'ai aussi développé le sens de l'autonomie puisqu'il fallait toujours réalisé les tâches de façon autonome et sans qu'un gérant vienne le dire.
I do not feel comfortable leaving a review on this company so here is some filler text to fill this box because the site won't let me continue without doing so.
