Pros

Good pay and a rewarding career if you work hard.

very unstable retail enviroment due to the office supply sector customer cutting back. razor thin profits and knee jerk management from the top.

    Flexible hours.

    Cons

    Benefits could be better, more match on 401, lower medical
    Reward employees on individual basis not store goals
    ISCE needs to be updated, too much chatter on radio gets distracting

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't overanalyze everything, stop making every little detail a hot button, reduce store goals to be more realistic based on trends and not expectations.

    I have been working at Office Depot part-time (less than an 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.
