I have worked in the food service industry since high school, and even in my short time at staples it has outstripped them in every way. The first thing that stood out to me was the feeling of being part of a team, something that was sorely lacking before. At staples everyone seems eager to help each other and share what knowledge they have. Management encourages you to learn all you can to advance your position at staples, and they actively educate you. Staples is the first job I've had that actually allows new employees to take advantage of their benefit program, and as someone who requires glasses that is a huge boon. Staples has made every effort to make life and work easier, from a strong team atmosphere, stable hours while working with and around your schedule. If I didn't want to persuade further education it would be the perfect job!

Staples is a great company. The company offered more than health insurance, 401K, and disability insurance. They care about their employees mentally and physically by encouraging them to pursue their own hopes and dreams. Our managers give us opportunities to move up in the company. We are given time to shadow other divisions to see if it sparks any interest. We are given leadership roles to improve our skills. If we want to pursue dreams outside to company, our managers ask how they can help and genuinely listen. It is nice to have a manager who cares about my pursuit in life. Staples also encourage their employees to take time off and tend to their families. Our families are included in family picnics sponsored by staples. We are allowed to put up personal pictures and decorate our areas as we see fit. Staples believes that if the employees are happy and healthy, they will do their best work for the company.
My manager is a jerk, which reflects a toxic corporate culture that is squeezing its employees with unrealistic benchmarks to try and make up for a struggling brick and mortar retail environment. The company advertises good benefits and advancement opportunities for part-time workers, but in reality the benefits are mediocre amd don't kick in until one year of service, and advamcement opportunities are largely driven by nepotism. The company lacks innovation, perhaps because it doesn't listen to its young and bright entry-level retail staff. The company asks too much for too little pay, training is non-existent at the retail level, and as a result it engenders little to no loyalty from its workers. The only good part of the job is my coworkers, who are sweet people. Other than that, this job amounts to a paycheck. Staffers should get out to a better job as soon as they can.
