    • 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.
