"Staples provided a good environment to grow as a young professional, and gave me the tools needed to really develop my current skillset and grow new talents. Management had a strong focus on their current employees, but would often times favor other employees based on geographical location. Overall, a good workplace, great co-workers, and good compensation. Major con would be one of my direct supervisors being a bit more of a party goer than I was, which would cause issues when I didn't want to go out to bars after a long work-day (this was frowned upon in the high-pressure sales environment)."

"The people are what make Staples a good place to work. All my colleagues were professional, nice, and goal-oriented. It was a pleasure to go to work and interact with these people every day. The work was interesting, and everyone was focused on success. It wasn't perfect, but it was a great place to work."

"Staples is a great place to work. It has a great work/life balance and allows you to have an opinion and to constructively challenge a decision that you do not believe in. They also allow you to be an innovator and to work on stretch assignments to grow as a person and an employee. I also liked traveling for my role."

"Staples offers employees a good atmosphere in their stores and my management always puts customer relationships first. There’s plenty of opportunity for growth within the organization, and that’s evident in almost every corporate position I’ve interviewed for, and every corporate employee I’ve spoken to. Staples are making appropriate moves in this time for retail, pivoting to their Staples Connect model, offering more modern solutions to concepts like co-working, podcasting, etc and I truly appreciate that as an employee."

"Company with a lot of moving parts and changes taking place. High levels of activity are needed to keep the funnel growing and an adaptive attitude toward change will go a long way here. Lots of new employees since the merger can cause some learning curve issues and constant follow ups on tasks not necessarily owned by the sales team."
