Order Picker/Packer (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 27 May 2017
Job was relatively easy, good pay, great benefits. Would have stayed longer but the evening manager is a complete jerk. Rude, picks favorites, talks down to everyone like they're beneath him. He made the otherwise great job completely awful.
Very enjoyable company to work for, pays well, treats workers like they're very much needed
Shipper/Receiver/Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 19 April 2017
Working for this company was great. Everybody was friendly and lighthearted, and the work was very worthwhile. I learned a lot about inventory control, how to use a wide variety of machinery, learned a lot about the distribution process, and the workplace itself felt great to be in. The hardest part of the job was trying to get everything done by a deadline during the busiest times of year (like back to school sales), but once the workday was done, you felt very accomplished.
Free lunches, overtime, easy to learn tasks
Some orders for customers were quite large and confusing
I meet a lot of great people with in Southern Alberta
Account Manager (Former Employee) – Lethbridge, AB – 9 January 2017
I enjoyed working with the other local staff and interacting with my client base of 750 accounts in Southern Alberta. It is had to have a positive review when you have been recently restructured after 7 years.
Good company to work for unless you are a Business Development Manager
Business Development Manager (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 22 April 2016
Terrible management for the BDM's (gun to your head style management). Extreme micromanagement and unrealistic activity metrics are put in place. No job security in this division. If you are not in this division, then overall Staples is a good company to work for.
Customer Care Specialist (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 6 December 2015
There is no Policies and procedures. Management doesn't even know and they can't even answer you. Some of the managers are worst and destroying the office environment. Please do not waste your time as they will not promote you anywhere.
Business Development manager (Former Employee) – Mississauga – 19 August 2015
A pathetic place to work here and your job would only last for 6 months. A revolving door policy and unrealistic targets and guess what the company is competing with other divisions of staples in order to bring in new business which creates a really bad impression on customers. You will go out to bring business but they usually are with other division for e.g staples preferred so you can't touch them very frustrating as you want to work but can't. The upper management at the mississauga office is ruthless and won't care, instead of retaining the employees and make some changes in their policies they would prefer to let you go and hire someone else. The sales managers are puppets and every one is trying to save their jobs. I have never seen such a high turn over any where else which clearly speaks of the company. Please don't waste time and stay away from staples advantage.
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 16 July 2014
Lots of being on your feet. No work advancement for good work ethic. I worked hard everyday, and was faster than anyone else. But no advancement, instead I was laid off a week before my 3 months was up.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 29 May 2014
The average day at Staples Advantage include but isn't limited to order entry, customer care and problem resolution. I feel that the job taught me to be quick on my feet with suggestions, resolution ideas, and alternatives to customer needs if certain products were not available. The management is very involved, and high energy, which helps keep the team motivated and excited.
