Does anyone have a phone number/contact for Staples Human Resource Department? Would appreciate any info/phone number etc.
Also,any feedback on how Staples is to work for.
I heard Staples is looking for a CPC (copy/print) District Manager, however, I haven't seen the position posted on their website and can't find anyone at HR to talk to.
Also, SBA Sr. Program Account Manager position is presently posted on their website - does anyone know how long it takes for Staples to fill their positions?
If anyone knows anything about these positions or who to contact at HR I would appreciate it!
THANKS TO EVERYONE FOR THEIR INPUT!!
Knowing what type of position is important if you want accurate info. I don't know anything about what they are like to work for on the retail side, but I could give you some insight on the contract division.
Overall, I would say that it is a good company to work for. Any organization this big is going to have some boneheads working for them, but the CXO are straight arrows who give a damn about making it a good company that has a good reputation.
If you want particulars, what position are you looking into?
Working in a business depot store is certainly nothing to rave or brag about. The stores operate on a limited service basis, but the customers on the other hand demand full service; associates and managers therefore find themselves doing an infinite amount of tasks simultaneously.
I'm not a manager, although I have a tendancy to believe managers are highly pressured given the high burnout rates. Fortunately, turnover rates are moderate due in large part to efficient hiring techniques.
A limited number of employees in a large store implies customers feel "free". Free to do and say the most daring and bizarre things. Never will I forget the horrific trail of human excrements beginning outside the bathroom and ending inside the sink.
On the other hand, working for Staples is challenging. Confronting disgruntled customers builds character. I can say this much: ever since I work for Staples, I erupt in bouts of anger ever more frequently and violently at home.
It is so disapointing to witness the lack of value of people. It would be interesting to see an analysis to the cost of turnover in some of the selling roles. I have seen quality people with awesome potential hit the revolving door. I know of district sales managers who spend the majority of their time training new people coming in and less time mentoring and investing in their existing sales reps who have amazing potential growth. They are so focused on the bottom-line and if they only knew the hidden soft costs of turnover. It's a shame.
Thank you all [vina, officep, decisiont,etc] for your candid feedback.
Staples HR department sure wasn't helpful in trying to find out the status of my "application" for a position posted on their website or providing any information on the CPC District Manager position. I know now why they have so many open positions - as they are so slow.
It is a shame I thought they were the Company to work for too. I truly wish they treated their people better than they do I would stay.I can assure you I am not the only Manager who feels this way.
>LOL, I worked for that company for 7 years, I enjoyed it and they USED TO treat there employees good, seems like they have gone down hill, while there profits keep going up. <
From what I hear, you hit the nail on the head.
I worked for Staples in their Corp office for 5 years. The company will always have strong profits because they skimp when it comes to annual raises. It will get frustrating to see the internal communications come out every quarter stating record earnings and record sales, only to have the average annual raise to be 3%. Better off being a shareholder than an employee. It's just not worth it.
Just 1 man's opinion.
