In our call centres you’ll find hundreds of smart, friendly Customer Service associates waiting on the end of the line, all trained to ensure they meet or exceed customer expectations. With advanced technology at their fingertips and the support of our national purchasing and distribution centres, they’re able to wow every customer every time.

They also define our easy in store and Web experiences by developing helpful, intuitive signage and marketing materials. And our Creative teams bring the Staples® brand to life through Web banners, radio advertising, direct mail and much, much more.


While our associates are busy taking care of our customers, our Human Resources teams are taking care of them. They’re committed to making Staples one of the world’s best places to work by providing the right support, great benefit programmes, top-notch educational programming and an outstanding culture. And they do a great job. Just ask a Staples associate.


Like crunching numbers? So do we. Our dedicated team of finance experts includes Planners, Analysts and Accountants, and associates in Payroll, Accounts Payable and Accounts Receivable. They’re the people that help keep Staples productive, efficient and fiscally strong.


Merchandising Operations manages the pricing structure for our products and plans for our seasonal promotions, ensuring they’re as easy to implement as possible. Once they’ve planned the layout and space assigned to products in store and online, it’s over to the Category teams who choose the best products and services to sell to our customers. Yes, that’s how you got your favourite pen.


Our Strategy team’s managers come from some of the leading business schools and have a wealth of experience with top-tier consulting companies – which means they’re well equipped to work on a mix of corporate and business unit projects in a fast-paced, highly collaborative environment. And because we view the Strategy team as a pipeline for management, many Strategy associates make the leap to other exciting roles at Staples.


In addition to our main Global Hiring areas, we also have several other functions that we recruit for as the need arises, including Administration, Internships, Legal, Loss Prevention, Operations, Project Management/Process Excellence, Quality and Real Estate.
