    I have been working at Office Depot as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Learning Opportunities, growth opportunities. Upper management seems to be open to suggestions.
    Very dynamic teams. Smart people. Great work environment.

    Cons

    The company has a hierarchical structure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be a little less hierarchical, the company is trying to change and is trying to appeal to younger customers. Would be great to promote more flexibility when it comes to decision making.
    Need to differentiate from Staples and Office Max.
    Great company.

    I have been working at Office Depot as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Hands 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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    The people I worked with. Mainly the managers at my store, 2085. The training was very helpful.

    Cons

    Some of the customers are rude, but that comes with the field of sales. The training was helpful, but long.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
