Complete chaos, staff run the stores
Manager (Ancien employé) – Greater Vancouver Regional District, BC – 6 octobre 2019
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 IT systems are outdated, slow and pretty much shocking for a seller of “tech”.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.
