Former Employee - Department Manager

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 ManagementAdvice

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 worked at Office Depot full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Very easy company to work for. The job and the people were fun and easy to get along with. I may have just had a decent store but the over all experience was good. Very flexible schedule allowing off time add I needed it. no task was ever too hard.

    Cons

    the pay rate sucks , usually just above min. Wage for everything but management. Room for advancement was also very unlikely unless someone left or went to another store. This could have just been my locations problem but the process to move up is still a pain and only goes by word of mouth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide better pay or a raise after employee had been with company for six months or a year. Allow more room for advancement.
