Staples is the worst place in the world to work

Staples is the worst place in the world work at they treat all their employees like shit they expect you to do the work of 7 people. I was told by several people when I was going there to look for a job not to that they have a revolving door now I know why if you treat your employees like shit they don't want to work there was people they would not even trained and then walk them out the door because they didn't know what they were doing

Sounds like you worked for a bad store.
