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

    Pros

    Good training and opportunities for advancement. If you are lucky enough to find a great store manager you will have a very positive work experience. I was mentored by some excellent retail managers and groomed to advance up the management path.

    Cons

    It is retail. The hours and customers can be a challenge. Ultimately I left because a long career in retail management was not for me.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the training. I would be more selective in the hiring process. It makes for a better work environment for all.

    Pros

    better than unemployment, but barely.

    Cons

    Worke 15 yrs, last 3+ as part time. NOW, we are told that Senior Techs (my tile for about 12 yrs) MUST be full time, therefore they wanted to reduce my title and pay by $3+ per hour. Did the same when Office Max merger happened. I think $6+ cut over three years is unrealistic, unlivable and insane!

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to your experienced and reliable help. Young part-timers are unreliable, inexperienced and two days of online basics DOES NOT qualify them to sell equipment to businesses.
