    I have been working at Office Depot

    Pros

    Flexible schedule and good pay if you are in a management position and if you can sell enough to get commission. Easy to move up if you do your job well and are willing to go beyond the extra mile when it comes to sales and customer service.

    Cons

    Expensive and poor insurance. Also the employee discount stinks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on customer service and respecting your employees. With happy customers and a happy staff that feels respected and empowered by there employer, sales and services will flow into your store naturally.

    Pros

    Great for getting time off the benefits are OK they used to be better though. The schedules are usually pretty good. Your personal experience though has everything to do with your manager. The yearly raises are a joke. The commissions are a good plus when the goals aren't set to unattainable levels.

    Cons

    As a regular employee what is asked of you is a bit much for the low pay and that's coming from a managers perspective. You could do better for more pay at Wal-mart or target and work a lot less. If I was just a regular part-timer I would work at a movie theatre for the same pay and stand in a ticket booth..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less Mindless tasks, busy work is handed down just for the heck of it. They talk about customer service but inundate you with tasks to the point where you cant help customers and get everything done. Hey make sure you pass that mystery shop though even though everyone is working on tasks.
