“Life at Staples is crazy good. The training and support is top notch. The benefits and culture of the company are super and wonderful. And the amount of money you can make is crazy good, too.”
“I’ve been extremely fortunate to build my career with Staples brands. I started working as a co-op supporting our marketing team and that grew into a full-time job when I graduated. From there, I’ve enjoyed a bunch of different roles. It’s been an opportunity to build on my skill set while learning something new and adding value from every past role.”
“When a store opened up near me, I jumped at the chance to work there. The pens might have drawn me in but it’s the opportunities to keep growing with this company are virtually endless. And that’s super exciting.”
“I always thought of Staples as an office supply store. My friends thought almost the same thing. Then I realized it’s so much more than a place people buy back to school and office supplies. Staples truly has a passion to work with businesses, small and large, and really wants to see them succeed.”
“One of the reasons I chose to work for Staples is I was studying supply chain in college. Everybody knows Staples has a world-class supply chain. So as an intern, it was a major draw with all the opportunity and that’s what keeps me here.”
