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

    Pros

    -----------------------------
    -Very nice start job for people getting into retail
    -From store to store, the management varies. But it is always fair.
    -Compensation for up-selling ink and protection
    -Each department is easy to learn and seeking help through their store hotline is very good
    -----------------------------

    Cons

    -----------------------------
    -All employees hired on part-time start at the very bottom of minimum wage
    -Copy and Print department can be hectic sometimes
    -Learning is on a need to know basis. I learned more from employees than my managers.
    -Constantly changing policies within the store. (Ex. How you greet a customer and customer focus only during certain hours of the day)
    -----------------------------

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit changing your employee policies. I know the company is not headed in the best direction right now, but could you back off on how employees do their job? The customer is priority. With that being said, there is a point where you are just starting to bug people when it is the same employee harassing if you need help. Other than that, I think the company is well off where it is now.

    Pros

    products, people, service, certain customers, paycheck

    Cons

    schedule & vacation issues, negative pressure on managers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    standardization is great but flexibility allows for reaction to variables specific to each location
