I have been working at Office Depot full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Competitive pay, for the most part. If a person works in Tech Depot or Copy and Print, great handson experience.

Cons

The ISCE (In-Store Customer Experience) program is overwhelming for the customers. It can be viewed as borderline stalking.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Only the strong survive in retail, only the best become management.

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

    Pros

    This job provided me flexible part time work while I was in college. The interview was fairly easy, and the general manager was friendly (but rarely seen).

    Cons

    There was no training. They literally walked me out to the sales floor and told me to start helping customers on my first day. It felt like I was being thrown to the wolves. Eventually I navigated my way around the business, and began to build confidence through my own self-training. After a month, my numbers were three times the next highest sales associate, and seven times the quota set for us. Despite this, I was still treated rudely by managers outside of my department- one time I was berated for taking a break that had been approved by my department manager and coworkers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When employees are surveyed about what they value most in their employer, respect and appreciation beat benefits and wages. I was willing to (and I did) give this job my best effort even though I was only being paid around minimum wage; however, I quit because I was neither respected or appreciated.
