    Please don't be afraid to promote from within, there are great employees at Office Depot, but many are overlooked. Newer employees were promoted faster than long time employees which was a blow to morale

    "Top notch operational organization, yet leadership at Regional VP level and above is poor and eithics are surface only."

    Former Employee - Store Manager in Birmingham, AL
    Former Employee - Store Manager in Birmingham, AL
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Good salary growth, professional atmosphere, and management works minimal hours in comparison to other retailers. Store Managers mostly work Monday thru Friday with some weekends as needed when best for business.

    Cons

    Office Depot's biggest problem is that they lack genuine integrity when it comes to dealing with those in management at store level, especially Store Managers. The company speaks of values and ethics, but this is mostly a cover for what goes on behind the scenes. In other words, the Office Depots integrity is only surface deep.

    Advice to Management

    Do the right thing, even if it might put the company at some risk. Don't sacrifice your Store Managers for immediate gain - hold them appropriately accountable, but don't cheat them out of fair treatment.
