I have been working at Office Depot

Pros

Time in the day. It is very flexible hours. There have been times when I needed to do some personal things during the day but somehow I make those hours up. It makes me want to finish everything by the end of the day. It's also nice to be recognized when hard work is done.

Cons

goaling is off, benefits are terrible, excuses instead of work
I hate that we pay so much for our benefits and the only time that is helpful is if I break a leg or slip into a coma. Not to mention they took our sick pay from 6 weeks and put it down to one. If you have a baby, you get 5 days and 50% of your salary. Not to mention it doesn't seem fair that some people will work hard and when you rely on others to do their job to get your job done and they don't nothing is done about that. It is so hard to get fired from this job.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

fix the goaling, make it equal work for equal pay, we pay way too much for the insurance we have.

    Pros

    Flexability in your work time.

    Cons

    Their comp plan was a joke. It would change many times not allowing you to get to your goals because they would change

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to set up your sales team to achieve and not fail. You also need to do more marketing in NY and open more stores or you will never beat Staples

    Pros

    Location. South Florida is a great spot. Unfortunately the corporate retail and IT industry is thin here.

    Cons

    Current economic position is significantly impacting OD. In turn layoffs, lack of resources, increased responsibilities without compensation, are all leading to poor morale. For some years now the annual merit increases have resulted in raises that have not matched inflation. Financial quality of continues to decline at this rate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice what you preach. They like to talk about the Service Profit Chain which begins with happy employees; in reality it feel more like greed in the upper levels is what drives the decisions and not the successes throughout.
