I have some fun for any current disgruntled Staples employee. There is a serious and largely unknown glitch in the Gift card/money card process that will allow any employee to create a gift card for themselves for any amount without paying for it at all.

This gift card will not show up on any report in the system anywhere. Here goes: signon to a register and ring a gift card for any amount, let's say $500. swipe the card to load it and leave that transaction alone. Go to another register and ring a Snickers bar, subtotal and pay for the Snickers with the gift card you just loaded at the other register.

Go to the previous register and press the VOID key to void the transaction. The purchase of the Snickers will LOCK the $500 amount to the gift card. When you void the first transaction, you erase the record of that transaction, but the card is still loaded with $500 because you locked it in at the other register. You will have a $500 gift card for free.

The transaction will NOT show up on the post void report, the gift card report, or the cash over/short report or any other report. You will have a gift card for any amount you want for free and there will be no record of it. Have fun stealing from those *** at Staples. By the way, this may also work at Office Depot, that is where I learned of the glitch several years ago, tried it at Staples just recently and it works there as well.

Probably because they use the same vendor to fund and service their gift cards. Pretty cool huh?

Monetary Loss: $500.

if it wasn't for that pesky 'immediate voids' report and the electronic journal that even keeps track of item corrects! :-/

^^ A regular cashier cannot void a transaction, but you can item correct the gift card and then total it to get rid of that screen.

I work for Staples too, and though I think it's an extremely top heavy corporation, they gave me a job which I can dump any time I wish. I return the loyalty they show me...

"Zero" But I also would never steal from anyone who would give me a job and pay check. I would move on, with my pride, and self respect intact.

"Item correct" a gift card, and it won't "authorize" for any amount. That occurs only when the order is completed, and paid for... So encouraging other deviants to become theives, although funny given the fact it won't work, is pretty pathetic.

Enjoy jail, because you're not very bright and bound to end up there, sooner or later.

I just hope some other *** doesn't follow your machinations and screw up their life too.

If you get hit that's assault and you can call the cops. Staples has cameras almost everywhere a customer can be so you have your evidence to present.

My GM likes to change schedules overnight and expect us to know about it without any calls. I had a new hire meeting that i was suppose to know at least 2 weeks ahead, I found out 2 days before.

She also likes to send us home early because we are over payroll but yet she was the same one who gave us the schedule! And GOD FORBID ANYONE worked over time except for her. No more than 37 hours for anyone!

She probably changes the time we came in and time we left so we get paid less. SMH!

There will be a * or some other mark to show if your time has been adjusted. Managers are not allowed to just change peoples time or they will be terminated.

HI,I AM CURRENTLY AN EMPLOYEE AT STAPELS NOW FOR 2 YRS. MY QUESTION IS WHAT POLICY IS THERE FOR THE PROTECTION OF EMPLOYEES??

RECENTLY I HAVE HAD CUSTOMERS THAT FOR WHATEVER REASON, THEY THROW ITEMS AT YOU OR DEGRADE YOU. THIS IS OKAY THOUGH BECAUCE THEY ARE THE CUSTOMER. WELL, IT'S NOT OKAY TO BE TREATED LIKE THAT, WE ARE PEOPLE TO AND DO NOT DESERVE TO BE TREATED WITH DISRESPECT AND HAVING TO PUT UP WITH THEIR BULLCRAP.

I AM THERE TO DO MY JOB EVERY DAY TO THE BEST I CAN AND TO HAVE SUCH TREATMENT IS WRONG AND WRONG!!!! THEN YOU WONDER WOW, AM I GONNA GET FIRED BECAUSE YOU STICK UP FOR YOURSELF??????????

I got bullied by the DM and GM into signing myself into a demotion because I requested a transfer to another store. They told me I was not good enough for my job...and then got upset that I went and got another one because their replacement wasnt ready to transfer yet! LMAO!

as a past employee i know for a fact that normal everyday cashiers cant void their own transaction( at least that's the way it was in my store)when I worked for staples we needed a manager over ride to do this...so maybe if you're in cahoots with a manager it shouldn't be a big deal. but the system could well have changed in the past few years so who knows.
