    Used to be great....

    I have been working at Office Depot full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Overall there is a good, but not great, culture. People are treated decently and the company has a good set of core values. Compensation is competitive, but nothing special.

    Cons

    Promotional opportunities are limited. Company is shrinking due to it's integration with OfficeMax. There will be fewer locations of both retail stores and distribution centers. Information is not shared widely but is held among a few key people.

    You get to work with some get people at store level.

    No hours to staff stores to meet companies goals. There is always unrealistic expectations. They push services but tech support on other in is horrible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Easy Advancement if you consistently work hard and work for the right people.

    I worked at Office Depot full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Easy products to learn.
    Employees were mostly college students working part time, hard working and smart

    Cons

    compensation below industry
    Basic, general training was ok. But product knowledge was not a priority.
    Management was under pressure from district manager to sale 'protection' plans
    Those had to be sold regardless of customer desire(high margin product, sell sell sell)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find something worth selling and train employees properly
