Working environment was friendly that everyone cold really get along with each other despite diversity in culture. Teamwork was always the key factor in achieving goals. The only thing that employees miss to have is the effort of the management to recognize everyone's contribution in making things out for the good of the company, at least to even appreciate everyone in a very simple way.
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.
A typical day at my work is always keeping busy,not wasting Employers time.I have learned to use computers,operate machinery.I get along with Management and co-workers,I do not find anything hard about my job because I believe if you like what your doig,it;s not hard to learn new task.
The most enjoyable part of my job is how Management appreciates my hardwork,and compliments from them.
Employee (Former Employee) – Mission, BC – 30 March 2017
An enjoyable workplace with great managers and coworkers. long shifts go by quickly due to the fact that you'll always be occupied. constantly around others, so that's a plus; you don't feel bored or isolated.

I really loved working at Staples. I did my high school co-cop placement there and so did my friend. It was really good! The people are really nice, and the management at the time gave us free supplies because she liked us so much.
Copy and Print Associate,Cashier (Current Employee) – Surrey, BC – 28 March 2017
Staples in Surrey is a great experience that has opened me to a wide and diverse range of customers and has helped me grow my interpersonal skills greatly. Management is kind and will genuinely put forward their best effort to help the employees or customer.

We had a really great team at Staples from the cashiers to the management to the computer Consultants to the aisle staff we were just great I think we felt like we were really accomplishing something as a team and me working there for those 5 years I made the best friends that I've ever met in any of my jobs.

Cashier (Part-time) (Current Employee) – Whitby, ON – 25 March 2017
I have learned how to use the cash system at Staples I like cashing out people's items because it is easy to do. I am still learning where all the items are located in the store but I am getting more confident where things belong. It is a great place to work.
