Does Staples offer massages?

Pros

Great Managers. They never stopped being reliable, honest, friendly and provided realistic / upfront expectations both ways. The other full time employees also provided a friendly work environment. Scheduling time off was never a problem and I can't recall there ever being a surprise or misunderstanding when it came to shifts or hours. I appreciated the company's stance on an employees role in dealing shoplifters and LP over others. The location on Ireland has a lot of options for lunch if you didn't bring anything and the break room would often get stacked with free drinks, snacks and pizza.

Cons

Generally low pay. From what I gathered from long time employees was if you stayed for a very long time you could end up with a more comfortable living than some might expect while essentially staying in a lower/entry level type position if you didn't take any promotions. I think the only aspect I can say I really did not appreciate was that some customers wouldn't pull up to the curb for help packing the boxes of paper in to their car and I did not like having to follow them to wherever they were parked and wait on them to unlock their vehicle then place whatever they were carrying inside and wait for them to get it situated for you to load up the rest. It would be best if they always pulled up right outside but I think they way the parking lot is that wouldn't be possible every time. Also the benefits seemed kind of meh, you could end up receiving quite a lot of money you put in with your payments throughout the year but it required participation in bi-weekly surveys, health journals (like a sleep diary or something) or apps. I resented the process once or twice.

Advice to Management

Keep appreciating employees the way you do. Also know the sense of humor you all kept alive throughout the week was helpful.

Does Staples have a pension plan?

Pros

- Well-intentioned team and management - Recognized brand - Employee discounts on merchandise and services - Private company = freedom to operate without quarterly pressures - Sound strategy to focus on services growth

Cons

- Slow-moving - Old school - Underpaying, underappreciating talent - Non-existent rewards & recognition - Significant turnover (unsurprisingly) - No pension plan

Advice to Management

Provide fair compensation to team-members. Formal / informal recognition goes a long way in building culture and loyalty. Prioritize on key projects that will drive the needle, and defend them against other things that come up.

No pension plan
