    I worked at Office Depot part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I loved working with customers in CPD. It's always fun getting to know your regulars and be apart of their lives and their everyday tasks. I also enjoyed my original team that I came into. We had a family persona, which was neat. I liked the fast paced environment, definitely a hands on job when training.

    Cons

    The manager I was hired under, eventually moved on from the company and they brought in a new manager from another store. This really messed with the team and we started to crumble. So I didn't like that. Also Copy and Print can be very busy when trying to juggle all different types of orders. You definitely have to be able to multi-task well.

    Advice to Management

    Don't push away your employees. Office Depot is supposed to have an open doors policy, but when the new manager came in..she went crazy strict on all of us right away, it made us feel uncomfortable and unwanted. Don't make your employees feel this way. If you enjoy the people you work with, you will have a better day on the job.
