    Pros

    Great family friendly work environment. Hours were not too demanding and usually had great staff that was flexible and understanding.

    Cons

    Let's go ahead and get this out of the way...if you hope to really earn money you are at the wrong place. I landed on this job as I was abruptly exiting another and I have to say this was the least amount of money I've made in my entire life. Opportunity for career expansion/growth is not open unless you plan on not making money for over a year and applying for a management position.

    Advice to Management

    You guys are currently doing a decent job but please inform your new candidates that money will be low here and it will continue to stay that way throughout their time spent on the sales floor.

    Lots of hours if you want them
    Most co-workers are nice and welling to assist you if needed.

    Advice to Management

    The advice to management is o look more into internal promoting from within because that some associates have added more work experience or degrees.

    Pros

    I really liked having a ton to do in print and learned so much. If you like to think on your feet, roll with the punches, and don't need a lot of money this is a great place. Recommended for students.

    Cons

    Odd hours put off my sleep schedule a lot, most employees get minimum wage and will never get full-time status, and customers flip out periodically. Also Office Depot is very anti-union, and crushes any attempts to organize.

    Advice to Management

    Show more humanity and respect to the people who make you thousands of dollars a day each.
