Productive and fun work environment for technology enthusiasts
I found myself having great conversations with the customers and building a rapport with many that came in. I also learned a lot about the tech world!

Great Place to Work
Management is generally caring and they truly coach you. As long as you implement suggestions and try them you can then collaborate with management to find what does work that's a good fit for your style.

Hard work for Decent Pay
I worked the afternoon shift which consisted of 2pm-12:00am but most times lasted till 2-3+ in the am and at the time I didn't have a car. So I would take public transit for an hour to get to work and I would recommend bringing your meals with you because the restaurant selection in the area at the time was very poor. My typical day was picking orders until complete then I would start loading trucks until complete. It was very repetitive work but easy unless you were put in the paper pit stacking the cased paper orders (very rough on the body and dirty) If you rely on mass transit you end up taking a cab home at the end of your day because transit ends nearby just before midnight. Warehouse is older and very dusty/dirty

Depends on the Day
This job has to be one of the worst I've ever had. Managers were not the kindest and would be agitated if one went to ask questions or get help. Always understaffed while I worked. The other people I met at staples were great.

Very good training plan in place.
Staples offers one of the best training modules in the retail industry. The culture and discipline of consistency in having a manager on the sales floor is really outstanding as compared to other retail giants.

Productive, Inspirational, a friendly place to work
Great place to work if you don't have any aspirations to move up the ladder. I have been promised a raise and guaranteed 40 hours numerous times and have yet to see that come to fruition.

Overall, the staff are very friendly and will always help you out. I have no issues recommending this place to work, besides what i said above.

Big Business
This company is in flux and ownership has changed a few times. Great place to get experience but long-term growth might be a bit difficult. Moral has suffered in some locations and the company focus is to make money and improve the numbers to make it look lucrative to potential buyers.

Toxic work environment
Constantly understaffed, the more you know about working in the other departments the further they will mentally and physically stretch you. You will spend so much time helping in other departments you will fall behind on your own and be penalized. No matter how much you give to them it will never be enough. The GM has absolutely no empathy and will sometimes will tell you, you can't call in sick or even make you walk to London Drugs to buy yourself gravol.
Pros
Free coffee
Cons
Toxic work environment, low pay, expect a lot, always short staffed

Environnement de travail productif.
Entreprise basée sur le service à la clientèle. J'ai eu du plaisir avec mes collègues. Tout est basé sur la communication. Il faut aimer former et coaché les associés. L'aspect le plus agréable est de rencontrer de nouvelles personnes et entre en contact direct avec les gens. L'aspect le plus difficile se résume à la recherche constante de personnel et donc un investissement de temps qui doit être planifié à tous les jours.

Environnement de travail peu confortable
Lieu de travail stressant, peu de formation.

Vous êtes livré à vous même.


Rémunération très basse, compte tenus du travail à faire sur le planché.


Un bureau mère très peu à l'écoute des ses employés


L'équipe est agréable


Les avantages sociaux sont relativement bons.
Pros
Avantages sociaux

Direction peu à l'écoute, Rémunération basse.

environnement du travail exellent
A l'entrée au travail, qui était souple, je me change d'habit en mettant un pull rouge de la société tout en étant habiller d'un pantalon rouge;
Ensuite , je pointe mon entrée au travail sur l'application dans l'ordinateur.

après cela, je rejoins le plancher de l’électronique et je commence à arranger les machines et les fournitures au besoin.

Puis, j'entame le réception de la clientèle tout en les dirigeant et les conseillant au besoin.

Je remplie les étages vides.

A la fin de la journée, je nettoie le plancher et je pointe mon arrêt du travail de la journée. je change mes habits et je quitte les locaux du travail.

j'ai appris beaucoup de choses dans ce travail.

tout d'abord, veiller sur la satisfaction des clients tout en les assistant, leur conseillant et satifaisant leurs louanges.

le poste de conseiller de vente m'a appris à travailler dans des condition de pression. il m'a appris l'endurance et la patience pour arriver à un bon résultat.

Un endroi à ne pas travailler
Travailler chez Staples chez rushant ils ne voient que de faire des ventes et visent à faire de l’argent tout en diminuant les heures de travail et donc le service client en prends un coup et l’ambiance de travail aussi on se retrouve trop souvent sous pression
Pros
Les avantages sociaux
Cons
Heures non garanties et pression de performer

Terrible
This has been the only organization I've ever worked for to blatantly lie to me in an interview. Work life balance was disregarded and the pressure to hit targets was absurd.
