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

Pros

You are doing your job in friendly team and management. You will train in all areas of jobs in store except for management.

Cons

To increase your wage a little bit you have to work about 1 year. At this moment for non-management positions they have only part-time

Advice to Management

Good management

    I have been working at Office Depot full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Not many. Layoffs all the way around. Worst pay and highest expectations in the industry... Upper management out of touch with reality.

    Cons

    Too many to list. Company is in a downward spiral. Things will get much worse before they get better. Merger with Office Max will not help this dying company.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue. If you keep going the way you are you will soon be the next Circuit City.


  2. "Dysfunctional Work Environment"

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

    Pros

    Great employees \ co-workers
    ...I can't think of anything else

    Cons

    Office Depot's motto is "Let's Grow One Customer At A Time" yet they expect you to assist 8-10 customers simultaneously. Store management usually sits in an office all day and does 'paperwork' - leaving the lesser manager to run the entire 30,000 + sq foot sales floor. Turn over rate is incredibly high - my store lost over 20 employees in a 3 month period. Training is all computer based. Radios gave me a headache from the constant unnecessary chatter. I had a short time with OD but I could tell by their outdated posters in the break room - this company has been through about 2 dozen "Customer Service Programs" in its time.

    Advice to Management

    Give up and close your business. You are losing money and become a more irrelevant retailer every day - sell to Staples and let them do the heavy lifting.
