    Great place to work if you know about technology products and have an interest in becoming salesman.

    Pros

    There is commission on services you sell to the customer. There are flexible hours. The store hours are shorter because of the slow economy, which means you can get out earlier. The staff is fun to be around and make jokes with.

    Cons

    Pay is OK. If goals are not met, you need to speak to a manager about your failed goals for the week. Training is based on whoever wants to learn. Some tasks are undesirable, such as the copy center. Something always goes wrong in there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should have made better choices when you were younger because your job is now your career. Management needs to schedule more hours to finish tasks on a daily basis.

    Pros

    10% Employee discount at any Office Depot store
    Opportunities for telecommuting, if your Manager approves
    Great disaster planning and hurricane preparedness

    Cons

    Salaried employees were expected to work long hours
    Contractors had more power than actual employees
    Portion of cost for health benefits

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please don't be afraid to promote from within, there are great employees at Office Depot, but many are overlooked. Newer employees were promoted faster than long time employees which was a blow to morale
