    Pros

    Very friendly people. Good training programs for all employees.

    Cons

    Complicated email system (Google Mail and Calendar), just need to learn it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The key will be to make a smooth transition for all employees during the merger with Office Max (scheduled for around Nov. 2013). Will be sorry to see the current CEO go when the merger happens.

    I worked at Office Depot part-time

    Pros

    I have an outgoing personality, so it made everything about the job awesome! My customers loved me and I enjoyed helping them!

    Cons

    The only con would be my co-workers. That's really at any place you work at though. It sucks when you have so much enthusiasm about your job, but the people you work with are zombies and rude to your customers.
