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

Pros

The organization, and the supply chain in particular, are very mature with a healthy appreciation for continuous improvement.

Cons

Capital investments were very carefully considered and only approved after many rounds of detailed analysis and justification. The legacy WMS system was not something that translated into value for other organizations.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to recruit and develop talented individuals that will help take the organization into the future.

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

    Pros

    great bonus potential, customer service focused, room to grow with the company, fast paced environment, company constantly changing to stay ahead in the office supply industry; good corporate support

    Cons

    micro-managed by DM, long hours, very limited payroll budget, training program needs work, LP department does not support the stores

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    work on training program; work on a true work/life balance, LP department needs to focus more on controlling shrink than for basic operational standards

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

    Pros

    learn great people skills from a variety of tasks and jobs assigned throughout the store

    Cons

    pay is horrible for all the work required, discourages employees from performing. 25 hr max and working 5 days out of the week is stupid for part timers. understaffed

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    do not micro manage employees it creates a rippled effect throughout the employees. be smarter on how you schedule each person according to the customer flow.
