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

Pros

I worked with a lot of people I liked

Cons

The managers would assign way too much work to get done while helping the customers. Corporate was constantly changing things on a whim and expected us to have to changed in the store within a day or two.

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

    Pros

    Employment

    Nothing else.

    Some commission but only on protection plans.

    Cons

    Low pay.

    Almost no chance of advancement.

    Treated like dirt.

    Think favors are required.

    Do not like employees that go to college.

    Advice to Management

    Sales goals are stupid, no one cares. Customers do not like to be followed. Promote someone for goodness sake.

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

    Pros

    it pays the bills, and it's all about your mindset. If you are going to go to work with the mindset you're going to have a bad day then you will but you can also make it fun. In my experience though there is very little pro in talking to customers and as far as any compensation well don't expect to be promoted so unless your store is one of the lucky ones that earns commission then expect the very least they can pay you.

    Cons

    bare minimum as far as wages unless you work there for 15 plus years. Don't expect to be appreciated, because you will be let down for any hard work you put into the position. Also don't always believe them when they tell you you are getting a raise or a promotion because in my experience the raise is bare minimum for the year and the promotion is very unlikely.

    Advice to Management

    Make more effort to support the little guy that makes the company run.
