    I worked at Office Depot full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    meet some nice people, learn how to survive

    Cons

    A few managers are excellent, but most are not. If you don't get a good one your life will be miserable. Short-term thinking is what it's all about. "Make bonus today, let the company burn tomorrow." This thinking goes all the way to the top especially with the merger we just went through.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hopefully the new CEO will have the guts to turn the ship around and get rid of the management that is ruining the company because of their own greed.

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

    Pros

    Coworkers if anything. If you have a good crew, it almost makes you forget how screwed up upper management is.

    Cons

    Upper management completely disregards those working at the store level. Advancement usually based on how well the district manager likes you, regardless of your job performance. Turnover is high, and did I mention that upper management does not give a flying flip about their retail employees. Pay sucks and yearly raises are not even cost of living. 1-1.5% at best. Had a whopping 65 cent raise total in almost 6 years. Staffing sucks to for wanting to have such an interactive customer service program.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to and take care of your retail employees.Stop trying to micromanage stores from Florida. We have family's to, think about that when you are sleeping in on Black Friday while I am having to work from 4am to close at 9pm or even on Thanksgiving while you are enjoying your family. Give the store payroll to staff the stores so that I am not having to run with three employees during the busiest time of day. Let your managers manage.
