Pros

Good name recognition. Some really caring individuals worked there.

Cronyism is very strong here. Promotions seemed predetermined, even prior to job posting. No innovative ideas. Always chasing competition.

Advice to Management

Set strategic plan and stick to it. Understand your strengths and focus on those. Better recognize & position true talent.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Independence of work. Pay was good with decent performance bonuses. Office Depot provided a great deal of vendor support and training.

    Cons

    Too many people who didn't seem to care about doing a good job. Office Depot spent a lot of time and money on the show and not enough on substance.

    Advice to Management

    Office Depot would do well by streamlining the levels of management and focus more on the employees who interact more with customers.

    Pros

    You get commission, you will learn to make sales, you can work as much or little as you want, management is usually supportive and helpful, and you can/ and will learn tons of stuff on everything.

    Cons

    Taking time off is like pulling teeth, benefits are expensive, commission isn't that much unless you're pulling in high volume

    Advice to Management

    increase comission, increase communications between the lower and upper level employees, consult the employees before making changes to the planograms
