Decent

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Office Depot full-time

ProsAbility to move up, and gain work experience. Ability to gain connections in retail.

ConsRadios used for training are horribly utilized for training, you feel treated like a second class citizen or a small child with the amount of repetition of common sense based information. The company is so micromanaged, it is painful. There is no room for creativity, or merchandising outside of their cookie cutter approach to pushing product off the sales floor. With the the micromanagement that is put into effect, their horribly inefficient computer systems and outdated approach to management, it is a miracle that they are keeping their head above water in our upside down economy.

Advice to Senior ManagementTreat the managers and associates at your stores with more respect and dignity, and it will ignite a passion within your employees. Passionate people who smile are the ones that need to interact with your customers, to have happy employees they need to feel appreciated and not scrutinized or treated like black sheep.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
