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

Pros

Flexible hours. Working with technology products is cool. The job itself is easy. Incentives for providing customers excellent service.

Cons

I don't get enough hours. Small raises are only given once a year. Pressure to sell protection plans, get people to sign up for rewards card, sell stamps, get customers to take the survey, and sell additional items. Sometimes it is really slow, especially at night. Management can be rude. Difficult customers. Policies not being adhered to.

Advice to Management

You should give more hours to loyal employees.

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

    Pros

    Office Depot is a great place to work if you love working with customers to make them happy. The people are usually fun.

    Cons

    You only get 10% off of merchandise. Are not fond of giving raises. Sometimes you will work 40 hour weeks and be called in on your day off (very often).

    Advice to Management

    Take away the new associate program, please. It sucks so badly. Either do that, or implement some new interactive teaching on the computers. Implement new computers. Copy Center Associates cannot do their job correctly if colors don't show up on the screen as they will in print out. the computers are outdated and slow. Depot Time is a good program, and great company values.
