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.

It is a great place for learning and getting started. There were limited opportunity for growth and management can be a hit or missed. Communication among management could be better to help improve work culture
I did 3 years working different shifts at the print Hub at Staples. What made me leave was their new policy with regard to hiring and the management. The old policy was to hire internally from the retail stores so that there would be a base level of competency of how to operate the various printers there, and to know what the company's standards were. Instead the new management started hiring through some recruiters - these employees had very poor English skills, struggled to use our online system, and struggled with basic computer skills. The new management also displayed clear favouritism toward newer employees who weren't familiar with how things were done. Advancement within the company was no longer an option for me.

After being with the company for 5 and a half years, I have literally held every position the retail stores offer (Sales/ Customer Service/ Receiver/ Copy Associate/ Technician/ Key Holder). The management team at my current location is tough but fair, and I wouldn't have it any other way. They let you know when numbers aren't great but will help coach you back up the ranks. I can't say the same for other locations. There is very little opportunity for advancement as positions are scarce, but if you become cross trained you can pick up a few shifts here and there. The pay is the big reason for the mediocre review. The benefits are great, especially considering I've had to use them. At the end of the day, I'm under appreciated, under paid, and over worked.
Working at Staples was alright for the most part. I was hired as the department manager for technology. District manager aspects too much for my employees when they were getting 13/hr. No incentive for them to sell. Manager pay is decent but sales is not worth the time. Many better paying jobs
a typical day: working multiple departments and shifts are always different. i have learned: retail model, customer relations, reception management: not very organized, each manager tells you something different. culture: changes based on who is the manager for the day hardest part: dealing with management. most enjoyable part: the associates I have met.
oppertunity to be cross-trained in multiple departments to gain more skill
management is disorganized and toxic. There is very few oppertunities for advancement within company

Don't go there if you expect a career. Staples only cares about sales numbers and turn over staff regularly. Employees who prey on customers to take their last dime are praised by upper management. Staffing hours are low but tasks are regularly being added on. All management and HQ seem terrified of losing their jobs and as such the comradeship in the company is almost nonexistent.
Working in the copy center was horrible. There was never enough staff and those on the floor and management were not copy trained. There was never enough help for when many people came in at once. A lot of the time costumers would get frustrated with me because I couldn't help them but as one personI can only help so many people in at one time. The management was never helpful. A lot of the time they seemed to think they were more superior and better than everyone else, that they didn't have to do any physical work and could just order everyone else around. There was never any consideration in that regard. A few people in my department had quit, and had given minimum two week notice but they were never able to hire anyone to replace them so they begged the associates to stay another week or two (one person had given 7 weeks notice and another had given three weeks). A bunch of the shifts had fallen onto me because of their inability to hire someone new. I never wanted more shifts, if anything I wanted less. I had made sure to tell management two weeks before both people left, that I wanted my availability changed to less days but when they finally left I was asked to change it and questioned on why I couldn't work certain days, even when before I had told them I'm going back to school. From what I know, as a part time worker the employer is supposed to work around the employee's schedule but that could be wrong. The work itself isn't hard but there can be a lot of difficult costumers and a lot of the time I can't do what they want. When I get a manager, most of the - plus...
Worst place to work ever. Staples has lost its way, not relevant and a partial makeover does not buy credibility in the market place. The staff run the store, there are no repercussions for bad behaviour, pretty much every day the calls for “I’m sick and can’t come in” begin. There’s constant in-fighting, positioning for advancement when there isn’t any. It’s hard to find staff to hire, harder to get them to stay or just show up for a scheduled shift. IT systems are outdated, slow and pretty much shocking for a seller of “tech”. The company spends a lot of time placating to the store teams providing union perks without a union. If you’re management you’ll be run off your feet, your schedule will be erratic and you’ll go back in time instead of a modern workplace. Impossible to get real work done as all you do is cover for the staff who bail on their shifts.
All of it; hours, work load, work life balance, stress and old fashioned stores and leadership.
I was offered a district manager position with another company shortly after I started as a department manager with Staples. I spoke to Staples regarding advancement only to be told it wouldnt be considered for at least 5 years. I accepted the other position. They were upset and basically blacklisted me from working with them again I acce
If you're in high school I would suggest staples because of their flexible work hours, especially during the summer when it is back to school season when they need the most help. The wage and raises are not so good. Any other retail job would give better raises.
I have worked for Staples for over five years, I started out as a temp at Back to school one of the busiest times of the year for Staples. I started working Full Time hours with Staples but was never offered a full time position I was still technically a part time associate. I worked these full time hours for about two years and asked a couple times if I could be brought on as full time so I could get the benefits and have vacation time. I was never given the full time position I was asking for. I started to grow tired of the way they were using me as a full time associate but never seeming to want to give me the full time benefits. The work isn't too bad I worked shifts from 6AM-3PM they are long and we only get a half hour unpaid lunch and two paid 15 min breaks. I worked as a merch associate so I was responsible for putting out the stock when It came in and keeping the shelves full. I feel like there is nowhere for me to move in this position you have to be in a sales position for management to pay attention to you and allow you to get promoted and move up in the company. For Staples its all about the sales numbers and as a merch associate I hardly ever get any sales. The workplace culture is good they buy us lunch some days and they will even give people birthday cakes and will do summer and winter staff parties. The hardest part of the job is dealing with the lack of training I received. They expected me to work the cash when I had no training and cover the receivers position when I only had a few hours of training. This made the job really stressful for - plus...
