Overall Reviews at Staples
Cashier/Sales | Pleasant Hill, CA | Aug 12, 2020
Compassion to encourage and team up non-Managment
Coworkers on levels of mine team work step up work progress informing to meet me in middle to train me nice. Nice management now, wasn’t nice at time I was there. The sympathy for culture at home was imbalanced with job stability. Kind of threw me off balance. Thanks for the job offer.
ProsBig building cool work Environment air conditioned
ConsBreaks on a hard rock not a big break room

Great Management, A great place to work
I enjoyed staples. The management team was excellent. I advanced within the first 4 months of working there. I enjoyed marketing and working closely with my customers.

Good first job with ample flexibility
I have worked at Staples for 3 years. I have had 2 GMs and both were great. You are able to move between departments and are well cross trained. Staples accommodates the needs of employees in school who need flexible hours. This job is great if you are in college. Starting salary is $9/hr (at least in PA and DE). However, to be a manager you need full availability. There are no full time jobs except for management. Raises only happen with promotion to another department or an annual 10 cent increase for "cost of living". I started at $9/hr and I'm up to $10.30 after 3 years. You cannot move past the GM position without some form of Business degree. My GM is considerate and positive, always trying to maintain a positive work environment. Overall a good place to start but not somewhere to make a career unless you have a business degree and plan on rising through the ranks.
ProsFlexible hours, cross training
ConsLittle room for advancement, bad pay raise system.

DM didn't have an idea of how to maintain #-4 stores within his district and lost many managers at my specific location within my 13 months time there. With the Current General Manager routinely cussing at me over text messages and coercing me to try to work unscheduled hours, dis agreed upon hours, and constant thought I owed him my whole life and was there to work for everyone since the staffing was depleted due to the poor wages in the region and poor management structure from the DM and Store GM.
ConsWork life balance, Benefits, Pay

Its a good stepping stone
If you need experience this is a good spot to get it. Lots of things to learn and lots of people willing to help you out. not a bad place to work whatsoever

Once you establish your self in your territory the manager moves one of her friends in to close business and shifts you again into a new territory.
Same as above. Older Regional Manager too busy pursuing female district manager to be observant of the unfair business practices taking place in the workplace
ConsNot monitored by regional manager

Management isn't prepared
Management in staples in very far from being trained and managers are almost all from outside sources, hence why they are so unprepared for the job they are tasked to take

Give you more work than you can accomplish
Management lacking. Husband and wife were Managers. Gave me 2 jobs for the price of one. Didn't support me. Made it so I would resign. Long meetings every morning taking away time from doing jobs.

ConsManagement not very attentive

Great company to work for providing advancement
Overall, Staples is a great company to work for offering advancement, transfer-knowledge, compensation, and overall growth. The leadership team at Staples offers proper guidance and opportunity for all associates to learn and become individual leaders themselves.
Prosgrowth, opportunity to transfer
