The original megastore, Staples entered the national consciousness in 1986. Today, the chain is the biggest office products company in the world. Its stores stock everything from office desks and chairs to highlighters, planners and, well, staples. Staples boasts nearly 1,900 superstores and over 9,000 employees throughout North and South America, Europe and Asia.
Interns work in various corporate departments, including customer service, human resources, information technology, marketing, merchandising, media, public relations, retail channel development, strategy and strategic sourcing. Most positions are at the company’s Framingham headquarters. Throughout their stay at Staples, interns and co-ops are exposed to training and upper management through company events and information sessions. Summer interns are given an overview of Staples, a reference manual and tour of headquarters, weekly lunches with various section leaders and a lunch with the company’s president and COO. Staples interns meet with their managers regularly and are given mid-term and exit interviews.
Open to college sophomores, juniors and seniors, as well as first- and second-year grad students and recent graduates. Staples prefers students with past corporate work experience.
