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

    Pros

    Theoretical opportunities for advancement (though see below). Depending on who makes the schedule, you usually have flexible work schedules, great co-workers.

    Cons

    Compensation was severely lacking. Management didn't really seem to have a clear direction or focus and was largely ineffective. Broken promises of a promotion that never materialized. Many employees working "Tech Depot" aren't properly trained. I often had to help fix a customer's broken laptop even though that wasn't my department due to tech employees not knowing how to fix the problem.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with respect, and train your managers better.


  2. "Dwindling opportunities"

    I have been working at Office Depot part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The hours are flexible, the people are nice and mostly competent, the company has a strong sense of values and promotes honesty and an open-door policy in most arenas.

    Cons

    The benefits are horrible and have been cut drastically since I started working here. Commission is based on a group effort and full-time jobs outside of management are non-existent, and even the best cannot sell enough for the whole store in 28 hours a week. My personal sales have been among the top in the company during months in which I received no commission because my store did not make its goal.

    Advice to Management

    Either the commission structure, the base pay, or the hours would need to go up in order for the compensation to be considered remotely competitive. Virtually all of the competitors offer full-time positions with a higher base pay for technology associates.
