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

Pros

Always something to do, someone to help, and people to talk to. You're always moving and rarely left bored. Corporate allows you to say "yes" to a customer without any fuss.

Cons

Workload is sometimes too heavy due to strict payroll. There is little accountability for store management to ensure schedules and reviews are actually being done.

Advice to Management

Hold management accountable for schedules being posted earlier in the week. Hold store managers accountable for managing people (hiring, firing, scheduling, and training), not random tasks.

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

    Pros

    Co-workers...nothing else. They make the job dealable.

    Cons

    Terrible place to work at. Associates get treated horribly while management can do no wrong. Very stressful, constantly getting yelled at for not making "numbers". Having to chase down customers as soon as they walk in the door, awkward for employees and customers get mad. No work life balance. Management think they own you. Might just be my store but no AC is ever on. High turnover rate as we get dirt kicked in our faces. Don't ask for a day off, it will get denied. Worst place I have ever worked in all honesty.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your associates with respect. Without us you have no store. We do your dirty work!
