Current Employee - Office Depot Sales Associate

I have been working at Office Depot part-time

Pros

-Some of the best co workers I’ve ever seen! I have a great connection and they are a loyal crew that always helps each other out to get our jobs and tasks done it’s really something really to... admire -Awesome career skills to learn here! lots of customer service, sales skills, technology skills, and the importance of a strong work ethic. -Great feeling inside the store they always play great music that really gets you in the mood to work hard.

Cons

-can be a bit difficult sometimes multi tasking a lot and having to deal with un happy customers at the same time. The stress could definitely build up on very busy days but at the same time great... learning experience. -Training needs work in my opinion would like it to be more 1 on 1 and maybe even to stay in and learn without customers. But overall I am satisfied with my training I actually do like that they threw me deep because I actually think I learned better there being more pressure so actully I thank you I am really learning more skills here at Office Depot.

Former Employee - Grooming Apprentice

I worked at PetSmart part-time for more than a year

Pros

If you love animals this is a great company to work for! I loved my time there. They are very understanding - I was going through some personal issues at the time and all of my superiors were so... accommodating and helpful, always making sure that my health came first. I am so grateful for my time there and appreciated the empathy that I received during a difficult time in my life. You get to meet so many adorable puppies and dogs! Working with dogs is so much better than working with humans. Lastly, they will train you to become an actual groomer and get your license. As well as train you in other store departments.

Cons

Short shifts. And not full time. Can be very fast paced. Lots of corporate rules that must be followed.
