    Pros

    Not a bad place to work as long as you do your job.

    Cons

    Activating phones was a nightmare of paper work with a lot of things that would take atleast 45 mins to get a sell completed on average.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Streamline the process make it simplier

    I have been working at Staples full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Within one year of working with the company, I received five promotions, all accompanied by raises. Job is easy to develop a routine with, and on the job training is available in most cases.

    Cons

    Stores severely understaffed, causing strain to few employees who remain being forced to pick up excess slack. In most cases, a promotion to a higher position actually means you will be performing duties of old position and current position, because your former position will not be filled.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn who your dead weight is, and when to drop them. Positions in the stores are so few as it is, do not let them continue to be filled by unmotivated workers.
