I worked at Office Depot full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

I had a great assistant manager and store manager It can be a fun work environment There's opportunity to advance when you have a store manager that seeks to improve and advance their employees

Cons

- individual experiences for different stores - the new isce program is completely unrealistic, customers comment that they're uncomfortable and annoyed, it was a total waste of money! When all the stores needed is some good product knowledge training and customer service training! -it's retail

Advice to Management

take advice from lower levels, Not corporate! Maybe some corporate people should work in store for a couple weeks to see how to really please the customers

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

    Pros

    Great atmosphere, I personally have great managers and enjoy being around my coworkers. It's not a hard job to get "good" at, and everyone I've talked to feels that the job isn't too challenging. The hours are very flexible; I'm a student and management has been very helpful in making my schedule work with me.

    Cons

    Base pay is 8 dollars an hour, and I haven't seen any increase in the 5 months I've been there. Upper management(district managers) Is kind of big brothery, visiting regularly and trying to trip up associates with questions.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your associates what they deserve. Don't ask questions, then demean associates when they don't know the answer: show them

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

    Pros

    Good company, some good benefits

    Cons

    Pay for associates is low, all associates get roughly the same pay no matter what part of the store

    Advice to Management

    Pay parts of store different than others. (Floor associates different than cashiers, cashiers different from CPD, etc)
