I have been working at Office Depot full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Good pay and a rewarding career if you work hard.

Cons

very unstable retail enviroment due to the office supply sector customer cutting back. razor thin profits and knee jerk management from the top.

Advice to Management

Get back to basics and give good service. Stop throwing money at things that yield low or no results.

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

    Pros

    - Schedule availability is flexible if you have another job or go to school.
    - Work environment depends on the staff you work with. Usually that gets you through the day
    - Raffles are done every month for monthly bonuses. This depends on your performance.

    Cons

    -Usually base your pay raise by up to 2% of your current pay
    - Commission is only available in the tech department up to 20% but depends on overall store's performance
    - Too many tasks to do v.s. what they pay you for.

    Advice to Management

    - Take the time to listen to your employee's needs. They are the one's running your store so you're making an investment on the ppl you hire.
     - Give reasonable raises. Employees should be rewarded for their performance and compensated for the cost of living.
