    Pros

    Store leader rewarded us for many aspects of our jobs, was very understanding and was truly someone you could talk to. Training and development.

    Cons

    Part time hours for everyone but management, same type of corporation that doesn't pay their hard working employees a liveable wage.

    Advice to Management

    It's understandable having to have a general direction for all stores for cost management, but when you send down new planograms or procedures maybe you should have someone who has actually worked in a store give direction. Pay attention to your associates who are on the front line and have a big impact on your direct customer service levels, instead of allowing store leaders to buy food all the time, give the money directly to the associates so they feel more valuable, like you actually appreciate them for driving sales and services.

    Pros

    Friendly people and management, good environment, you will make some new friends while on the job, everyone looks out for one another

    Cons

    Pay too low, hours cut sometimes, on register until a new person is hired, full-timers never really get cut hours or go through what part-time people go through

    Advice to Management

    Stop cutting hours


  3. Benefits are great and pay is reasonable.

    Pros

    I love most of my customers and know them on a first name basis. I love the work I do.

    Cons

    Drama drama drama!!! There are associates that act like they are still in high school and they aren't scared to show it in front of customers.

    Advice to Management

    We need to be careful who we hire. A lot of employees steal.

    Pros

    Great overall work experience, state of the art office, great work environment. Had a wonderful relationship ship with my supervisor and we made a very proactive team

    Cons

    In some areas the is a lot of overtime needed and because of the merger there not a sense of stability even though management does a good effort at communicating.

    Advice to Management

    Management should give more importance to e-commerce, less to actual stores. Online shopping has become the new way to do business

    Pros

    Overall a good company to work for. Possibility exists for a take over from staples in the near future. There are good leaders in this organization.

    Cons

    Some uncertainty with the future of the company. Merger after merger. Communication on the current merger has been next to nothing.

    Office Depot was a great place to work simply because the whole staff was awesome from the associates to the management, that was one of the best jobs I've ever had

    Pros

    Great people to work with, many of the managers were very smart and had been in sales for years, plenty of sales contests for motivation and some extra cash in your pocket

    Cons

    Price driven industry, heavy focus on call metrics vs. actual sales, Quotas and reporting always took a LONG time to receive with not much explanation, a lot of M&A going on then and still today
