Inventory Specialist (Current Employee) – Fremont, CA – 12 August 2013
A typical day is: do cash office, open store, perform 2 different in-depth cycle counts, perform out of stock scan (plus research), do paperwork, clean warehouse, help customers, meet sales quotas, help on cash register, answer manager calls from customers and employees, receive (load and unload) truck/freight/load within 24hrs, send back damaged product to vendors and warehouse.
While working at staples, I've learned to do better manage my time and how to become more efficient.

The managers were bullies and did not care for the employees. they use to treat us like dirt and did not stay truthful to there words when it came to offering employees time off. I have been told that numerous people have quit and left for a better work life.
understanding work environment with lots of great energy

over all staples has a lot of energy from its employees, the managers are understanding of students and will try to work with their schedules. Great job for anyone needing to build costumer service experience or as a first job in general.
Night Supervisor (Current Employee) – Vernon, BC – 6 May 2017
I am fortunate that I work at one of the best stores in the district with management that expects nothing less than the best to keep the store on top. This isn't the same for all stores, unfortunately, but for the ones that bring their A game constantly, from the managers on down to the part-time people, it is a great place to be. I am proud of the store I work for, and that is not a complement lightly given 😊
Store Associate (Current Employee) – Elgin Mills, ON – 28 April 2017
I started my work in Staples Richmond Hill store this year in Feb. Although the workload is heavy as a store associate, I am so glad of working here and meet my managers and colleagues. Managers in this store are the best ever. My colleagues are very good too. Everyone is willing to help with each other. I feel I am working in a big family.
Technology Associate (Former Employee) – Sault Ste. Marie, ON – 23 April 2017
When I started here, I thought my main goal was to help customers. Turns out I needed to push ECP sales.
During the last few months we got a new manager who started pushing sales way more than necessary, especially because the store's traffic is very slow. My co-workers were okay for the most part (except when one of my colleagues sexually harassed my fiance; he got fired).
I left because I'm moving, although I think my skill set can provide me with much better jobs.
At the end I was getting 5 hours for 2 weeks, so I wouldn't really like to work for Staples in the future.
Sales Associate and Cashier (Current Employee) – Cobourg, ON – 17 April 2017
The managers are very nice and they are really understanding of time conflicts and things like that, but in my experience you could see as little as 4 hours a week for part timers even if you are doing a good job.
