ProsCoworkers are pleasant and fun to work with;
Hours are pretty decent;
Never off the chain busy unless it is Back to School or Black Friday.

ConsPay is kinda low, but not unreasonable;
Tough time getting hired from within for jobs;
Company is merging with Office Depot and stores will eventually have to close.
