a daily fight, and the new failed ISCE "Journy" Program

CSS II, Copy Center (Current Employee)

Prosname on resume
10% employee discount
can get work done on slow days
you can tell when its hyped up lies coming out of corporate

Cons1-ISCE "journy" = putting all the work on front end and managers to allow the tech and furnature associates to sell to the customers but for no longer than 5 min
all associates must quiz every other associate every 60 seconds or so and a lot of paperwork
2- pay is minimum wage with no pay increase unless the whole store does well and no commision unles you double or triple your last years best and only if your the best in a district
3 - corporate has micro-mange-itis
4- if your on the bottom its always your fault
5- copy center is the most demanding section of the store outside of managers because half the time copy center acts as managers

Advice to Senior Managementlearn that 2 associates till noon is not a effective way to cut costs nor are 2 associates from 6 till close is an effective way of cutting costs, ISCE is and i cant emphasise strongly enough NOT LESS WORK no matter how many times you say its less work you cant lie to us we know your cutting costs
STOP LIEING TO YOUR ASSOCIATES wed trust a corporate that would be honest

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Overall slightly more negative experiences than positive ones.

    Customer Service Associate (Current Employee)

    I have been working at Office Depot


    Pros: Once you have the job it is fairly easy to keep the job.
