"I've worked for Staples since 2005, when starting with the company I was a cashier. After 1 yr I looked for advancement opportunities which was when I got into selling. For 3 yrs I was the top salesperson, which was when I got into the Manager Program. After 1 1/2 yrs I was promoted to Sales Manager after driving sales and growing our tech business for 2 yrs I was backed by my district manager to get into the General Manager Program within 5 months of entering the program I was promoted."

"I've worked for Staples for the last eight years. In that time I moved from being a part time associate to General Manager. When it comes to work I am extremely motivated and will work as hard as I need to, to get the job accomplished. As far as sales I was the top sales person in my district for three years in a row."

What do you like about working at Staples?

"The people I work with. The product selection. Our customer base is in general very good to work with."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Don't wast your time until the company makes some changes attatthe DM & RVP levels...someone is going to have to grow a pair and stand up for the great people that work very hard day in and day out in the stores."

What don't you like about working at Staples?

"Senior management. This company is bleeding managers and if the economy was better, I think there would be an exodus of talent. There needs to be a culture shift to where the stores determine the day to day and not corporate."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"See paragraph above and learn to focus on the big profitable business areas. We are really focused on a 90dollar on site each week...out of a $100k sales week...come on, get real."
