Quill.com has been a Chicagoland business since 1956 and currently offers our customers an assortment of more than 1,000,000 products so they can find exactly what they need—no matter what business they're in. Our annual sales now total more than $1.2 billion, and we've always understood the vital importance of customer service. Our central promise is to do whatever it takes to ensure 100% customer satisfaction.
In 1998, Quill.com proudly became part of Staples, Inc., and one of the best parts of working here now is that we've maintained our original small-company feel—and added the benefits and support of a major corporation. More than 500+ associates now work in our Lincolnshire headquarters, located 40 minutes north of Chicago just off I-94.

The IT Intern will be responsible for developing a migration path for SharePoint Apps current in use. Currently Marketing and Merchandising groups have developed and are using multiple SharePoint applications. These applications are used for planning, tracking and workflow management.
Unfortunately, the current version of SharePoint and the forms used are no longer supported by Microsoft. Given that these applications are critical to the business processes in place, an alternate solution needs to be developed. This project will require the intern to research each SharePoint App currently in use, understand the what it is being used for and make recommendations for the new tool / internal application to provide the same capabilities. Additionally, the intern will also be expected to make recommendations on what can be automated so that on completing the workflow the data is systemically updated in the Quill systems. Come join the IT team to help with this critical need!
