University Relations Success Stories

Supply Chain –Logistics Strategy Co-Op

“As a Logistics Strategy Co-Op, I have been working on challenging projects and have always been treated like a full-time associate. My manager and teammates showed genuine interest towards my growth guiding me to complete my projects successfully. Staples provides an environment to learn and experiment new ideas. I had several opportunities where I could implement my ideas and test the outcome which I feel is unique about Staples. Currently I am working with the latest data analysis tools that will help me prepare for a career within the competitive industry. This Co-Op has been a wonderful learning experience and has helped me grow as a professional.”

Staples Brands Group – Product Management & Development Own Brand Co-Op

“I am not just a “Co-Op”, I am an associate of Staples. I am valued, and I was able to receive a taste of the real world. At Staples, it’s a community with endless opportunities to become more involved with community projects,  volunteer efforts, even getting on camera and playing a role in a short clip! The Co-op program has given me the unique opportunity to understand what it takes to succeed. I was able to sharpen my professional skills throughout my time on SBG. Given the many unique departments and divisions, I had the chance to thoroughly understand each and every one of them. With the support of my team and the leadership from my manager, I was able to tackle challenging responsibilities. Dedicating time and hard work on a project and then witnessing it go live gave me a sense of accomplishment and achievement that contributed to my entire experience. I feel ready to enter with confidence and greater knowledge. My advice; Make the most of it!”

Global Technology –Data Scientist Co-Op

“Since day one I was given freedom to  apply my ideas and experiment with new technologies which gave me a tremendous exposure and sense of achievement. I joined this company as a Data Science co-op only with academic knowledge and no real experience in the field.  This is a place I was able to apply my technical skills to develop scalable systems that have enhanced my technical expertise and learning. I work with wonderful team members who always support and guide me towards getting the most out of my experience. I can undoubtedly say that this wholesome experience has prepared me well to pursue my future endeavors with confidence and a clear professional vision. The co-op experience at Staples has been a very fulfilling one.”

eCommerce – eCommerce Rotational Co-Op

“I’ve been fortunate to contribute on numerous ‘big projects’. But I must say that in my first rotation, I spearheaded a product assessment for Business Services. As Staples is looking to expand its reach in BO$$ and mid-market, it was my responsibility  to conduct due-diligence on Local Digital Marketing Platforms. Once our team developed a short-list of viable contenders that we could potentially partner with, it was my responsibility to dig into the weeds by assessing every element of each digital marketing platform’s offerings.  Once I gleaned as much data as possible, I formulated a scoring system that rated each company according to breadth and depth of offerings, as well as its strategic fit for our business. I believe my success here which hopefully will lead to a full time offer has been my go-getter mentality, the relationships I have built, and venturing out of my comfort zone. Staples has allowed me to truly believe one day I may be the Chief Strategy Officer I hope to be!”
