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

    Pros

    The hours as a department manager remain at around 40.
    Great benefits.
    The turnover rate doesn't seem to be too high in my store.

    Cons

    Don't bank on commission. The goals are, at times, outrageous and most times we don't bonus.

    Not an encouraging or coaching environment. They seem to only focus on negatives.

    Not enough payroll to be fully staffed so the tasks don't get done and if they do then it takes working on days off or ignoring customers... both of which are frowned upon.
    The hours are all over the place. Sometimes I open, sometimes I close. The days off are rarely consistent.
    NOT a good place for a parent... especially a single parent.
    Does not respect personal values when it comes to going to church. I wouldn't ever complain about it to HR but I work a lot of sundays even after requesting them off.

    The workload they drop on you as a manager is a LOT!!! Too much for us to do then we get hounded for it not being done. I am hoping that the merge with office max will help.
    Most store managers sit in their office most of the time then wonder why the store is lacking.

    Advice to Management

    MORE PAYROLL!!! We need more people in the stores to get everything done properly!
    More in depth, hands on training for our copy and print specialists along with higher pay for them (That is one of the hardest jobs in the store, if done right)
    Set hours.

    Pros

    Opportunity for advancement and more $

    Too many chiefs, not enough Indians. Also, company has trouble making decisions best for company, rather than for specific individuals.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your front line employees...they have lots of info to offer!
