Internship Review at Office Depot Global Headquarters

Intern (Current Employee)
Boca Raton, FL

I have been working at Office Depot as an intern for less than a year

ProsHands on experience, interaction and complete task with contingent workers in Guatemala and India. International travel was offered for a week in Guatemala. Manager was available all the time. Manager provided technical skills. Working in a conference room with Manager and Sr. Finance Analyst. Opportunity to meet almost all the senior executives. One on one with Senior Vice President, Directors of Business Transformation. Great pay with great working environment. Information sessions by Senior Exec was helpful to learn more on the operations of various department/business functions. Project building experience. Great team players

ConsDifficult process to transition from internship to full time employments. Interns have to ask for offer in some departments.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep it up! Interns need to lean to do more hands on work and network. So be available like in summer 2012 for upcoming generations.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
