    I worked at Office Depot full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Staff: The store manager was fantastic and most of the managers were extremely nice.
    Communication: There is zero paging over intercoms. All communication is made through walkie talkie headsets. So much more professional than most other retail establishments.

    Cons

    PPPs: You have to sell so many, which is fine, but if you work in the copy center you have very few opportunities if your Design Print & Ship station is successful.
    DP&S: I was always busy and always needing help but no one wants to be in that area to help.
    Technology: For being so technology-based, their machinery is pretty old. We were still working with clunky IBMs.

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

    Pros

    Managers are flexible with your schedule and will accommodate sudden changes. Staff is friendly and most patrons are respectful. It's an office supply store, most people are not coming in to start trouble.

    Cons

    Many people steal. It is relatively easy and many times that can come at great cost to the store and indirectly your treatment as an employee. The computers are terrible and working in the Copy and Print Depot can be a hassle when you want to provide great service but you do not have the resources. It is very hard to get a raise or advance in store management, there is a high turnover rate. Many associates never become managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create incentives to keep employees around for more than a year. Advancement in the company is what many young adults are looking for.
