    Pros

    The best reason to work for office depot is if you like to do boring manual labor for an insulting hourly wage.

    Cons

    You will be doing boring manual labor for an insulting hourly wage. Time goes by slow. One hour feels like four.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees what they are worth instead of taking advantage of their desperation for need of a job in these hard times.

    Pros

    Flexible schedules (when the manager likes you), discounts on cool stuff, encouragement to learn high-pressure sales tactics.

    Cons

    Commission is only paid if the entire store meets its goals. You can make 300% of your daily goals in PPP & TDS sales and if your store doesn't make it you don't get more then minimum wage. Your 12 week average can't be more then 32 hours, so if you work too much they will cut you until your average drops and then over-schedule you once your average is down.
    There is a "health plan" that is not health insurance (per the plan documents), it has a $1,000 a year payout maximum and doesn't actually cover hospitalizations, surgeries, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-examine benefits. An employee who quits to avoid getting fired should not be re-hired in a management position. There should be more continuity across the company.
