I have been working at Office Depot part-time (less than a year)

Pros

Customer interaction, workable hours, and decent opportunity to advance. It gives you a chance to keep up with the latest technology.

Cons

No commission, the company wants you to sale plans, to "make commission", but unless the entire store meets it's quota, no one gets pay out.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management should focus on its employees, not on the customers. Then, the employees can focus on the customers.

    I worked at Office Depot full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    OK pay - hours are decent

    Cons

    negative working environment - nothing is ever positive...you either did this wrong or that wrong - corporate has a specific way it wants everything done from when you check your email to how you handle employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    let your managers manage

    Office Depot was fun when I first started working there a few yrs ago, but with the ISCE program it's terrible.

    Pros

    - Schedule availability is flexible if you have another job or go to school.
    - Work environment depends on the staff you work with. Usually that gets you through the day
    - Raffles are done every month for monthly bonuses. This depends on your performance.

    Cons

    -Usually base your pay raise by up to 2% of your current pay
    - Commission is only available in the tech department up to 20% but depends on overall store's performance
    - Too many tasks to do v.s. what they pay you for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Take the time to listen to your employee's needs. They are the one's running your store so you're making an investment on the ppl you hire.
     - Give reasonable raises. Employees should be rewarded for their performance and compensated for the cost of living.
