Good place to work for students
Services Supervisor (Former Employee), Maple Ridge, BCSeptember 9, 2015
Pros: Good work/life balance
Cons: lots of favortism and a low wage for what they expect of you
I was a Supervisor for almost a year. I liked the hours and days that I was scheduled. The management is not supportive of the supervisors, even though you're still a manager it doesn't feel like it. There's a lot of micro managing and my manager told me that I needed to figure the job out for myself not to ask her how to do something ( there are video's but not a lot of one on one). They don't like it if you ask a lot of questions and not a lot of patience. I really didn't have a good experience there. I was a store manager for almost 10 years so I know how to properly train staff, be compassionate and have respect to others especially when they're new. I wouldn't go back.

cashier (Current Employee), Brampton, ONNovember 12, 2015
The co-workers are nice and so are the managers. I learned everything I know about cash through staples. The hardest part about working at staples includes the short hours, the times when nothing is happening, and the distance. Overall, staples is an alright first job but only as a first job.

Temporary Renovation Worker (Former Employee), Moose Jaw, SKNovember 2, 2015
the structure and resources for a starter job are great but it completely depends on the staff to which you work with because if clicks have been pre established then look out for poor training and favouritism.

Customer Service Help Desk Associate (Current Employee), Lower Sackville, NSAugust 18, 2015
Pros: Good vacation accrual (2wks from 1-2yrs, 3 weeks for 3-5 yrs and 4 weeks, 5yrs+
Cons: Hard to reduce hours when there is a business need
The hardest part is when it is busy, answering call after call, endless ringing in your ear. After 10 years, I need a change but there are many who have 10+ years at this center, for a reason- great benefits.
