    I have been working at Office Depot part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Mostly nice coworkers
    Great first job
    Provides networking opportunity

    Cons

    The ICE program
    Emphasis on customer service to the point that customers get annoyed, and I can't get work done.
    Lacking in necessary technical equipment
    Little for advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Such fanatical customer service is not helpful, it is annoying. You're going to push away more customers than you keep, and lose your best employees if you stay the course.

    I worked at Office Depot part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The job is extremely easy, the employees and managers were all extremely laid back, pretty fun on most days, flexible schedule, closes early on major holidays. The store never got many customers either, so most of the time there was nothing to do, but I personally see that as a pro since I personally didn't mind getting paid to stand around.

    Cons

    The only bad thing was that they started this new program, where you basically have to harass every customer that walks through the door and then announce over the radio to your fellow co-workers why that customer was shopping there and what they were looking for. That got pretty annoying quick, especially since it caused us to have more angry customers than before. Also people called in a lot because they knew management wouldn't do anything about it, that was the only downside to management trying to be everyone's friend, sometimes you just have to be the boss.
