I worked at Office Depot part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Seems like steady employment and the assistant managers for the most part were pretty reasonable people.

Cons

Just about everything I have come to expect from most retail jobs. The starting pay is starvation level, and the opportunities to move into full-time are practically nonexistent. Moreover, the store director was a uber-micromanaging tyrant with no respect for the newer associates and had no concept of professionalism. Made up rules not in accordance with the handbook like demanding doctor's note for a single absence due to illness. Unreasonable expectations due to new ISCE program.

Advice to Management

Advise your store directors that they have to follow company policies too, not just the associates. Stress professionalism much more stringently.

    I have never worked for a better management team. They are caring, yet efficient.

    Some of the employees are slack, and some , such as myself go over and beyond to have the store looking great.

    Advice to Management

    Address the employees that are not completing there responsibilities.

    I have been working at Office Depot part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A part time job to put food on your table when there are no other jobs out there.

    Cons

    Minimal raises, overworked, does not promote from within, horrible management, just an all around horrible job.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within. Do not go out there and recruit a manager who has never worked at office depot! there are plenty of people who already know the system that you can promote!
