"The salary was very competitive and a direct representation of my hard work and efforts. They also offered many bonuses. The compensation for cell phone, home internet, laptop and tablet, as well as car allowances, was a major bonus as well; these expenses were covered by my employer, so I did not have to take a hit out of my paycheck to adequately do my job."

"Staples way under pays, and to give an example, they started selling cell phones they started the employees off with $10.00 hr. plus commission per phone sold ($35) they had no duties but to sell phones. As a resident tech I had to put merchandise away, help customers, repair computers, sell computer repair services, back up register and copy center for $9.25 hr. I started at $8.50 hr. and after 5 years only reached the $9.25 hr. Yet new hires and cell phone sales were making $9.50/$10.00 plus commission. So pay was grossly unfair."

"For the work I manage to pull off with the company's limitations, I am underpaid. My co-workers are a little limited in knowledge and skill, none of them actually have any certifications beyond Staples certs. I think my expectations for this position may have been too high. Because of the limitations, $9.60 an hour is about right. If I had a full workshop and proper equipment to work with, I would be severely underpaid at $9.60, if that makes any sense..."
