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!

I worked as a Tech Sales Associate. They are required to stock shelves, work the register, clean the store, take inventory, and help customers with with purchases while also "encouraging" them to buy things to bundle with a printer or PC purchase. All of these are standalone jobs at other large retailers, so you're basically doing many jobs in one. Cold selling "protection plans" on electronics is very difficult and most of the time customers won't buy one. If this happens continuously you will get a stern talking to from the store manager. Most of the people I worked with, including the customers were nice but you will get the old people that don't know what they're doing and will get mad at you as a result. Pay was okay, started below retail average but got a raise soon to be competitive with Walmart. Would recommend applying to other places first.
I have a wonderful team of coworkers, a wonderful manager, a wonderful district manager, and a wonderful regional manager. My position in store allows me to work around printers, which probably sounds boring but it’s absolutely amazing. Previously being a graphic designer, getting the chance to help advice customers on their design projects for their businesses is so amazingly awesome I cannot even put it into words. Furthermore, when I get to see the final printed product of all of our hard work, it’s like I’ve just helped deliver a mother their child.
