I worked at Office Depot full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Some of the other employees were pretty swell. The managers were all friendly, intelligent and relatively accessible.

Cons

It's a crumby retail job I got to make some money while looking for a regular 9-5 job, and SPOILER ALERT the public sucks. If you don't want to end up totally misanthropic, stay out of retail. After a time, I was promoted to sort-of manager, and I can say that for what the company expects out of it's cashiers on up to management, the compensation is VERY LOW.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Better pay means happier employees, more productivity etcetera. Perhaps, and I imagine this goes for most big retail stores, have policies created by people with actual retail experience, not MBAs who've never worked directly for the public.

    Hire a best-in-class agency to rebrand and innovate. Office Depot has NO brand equity!!!
