Pros

Job is a no brainer, can do while half asleep

Cons

Close to no pay, only part time, they don't care and don't give scheduled paid breaks, but insist you check out for an unpaid meal break. You can easily spend 5 or 6 hours on your feet before you get to sit down or pee.

Advice to Management

Respect employees and ask managers work as hard insuring that breaks are offered as they do making sure the floor is covered. Managers should cover for breaks instead of getting off schedule and goofing around in groups

    Pros

    Meet some really great people, and there was always lots to do.

    Cons

    Sales...Sales...Sales...guess that's what you should expect working in retail.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time on the sales floor and not in your office.

  2. You'll learn a lot, but that's because you'll do the jobs of many.

    Pros

    Office Depot's biggest problem is also their biggest benefit. The problem is that they do not hire enough people or make enough money to hire enough people to get everything done. The good side of this is that you will get incredibly well at multitasking and balancing several different tasks at once.

    Cons

    The problems are that
    1. 20% of the people do 80% of the work
    2. you get paid minimum wage to do 80% of the work

    Advice to Management

    Change the focus of the store from quantity to quality. Don't focus so much on selling PPP's and focus on providing better customer service.
