Probably what you would expect from a summer job

I worked at Staples part-time for less than a year

Pros

Get to work closely with some of your co-workers, who I got along well with so I enjoyed the
camaraderie
The managers were generally helpful if you had any clarifications needed

Cons

Deliberately tried to avoid giving OT even during busy periods, which would lead to work getting piled up causing for some odd (EARLY) hours in order to work when the customers weren't in the store
Had to wear multiple hats at once sometimes when people would not show up or call in sick

    I have been working at Staples full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Gives all the tools to succeed. Lots of great benefits, even for part-time workers. Pretty good bonus structure and rewards successes.

    Cons

    It's retail... weekends and holidays. Pay structure is better for those externally hired rather than promoted. Pretty tight on giving the hours necessary to get everything accomplished... but again, as I said, it's retail.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don's spend quite so much time worrying about pleasing shareholders. Keep communication lines open with those on the front lines.
