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

    Pros

    It's like any other retailing job, so the kind of work is simple and very doable. Would easily recommend over fast food for sure.

    Cons

    Unforgiving hourly-work expectations. You have prior obligations that are arguably more important to your life than covering a shift, you better reconsider...


  7. "not good pay/ raises"

    I have been working at Office Depot part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    not huge store, repeat customers

    Cons

    high turnover even for management positions, blackout dates for vacation , terrible paid time off, no good benefits for part timers, and refuse to give full time positions to avoid giving benefits, payroll cutbacks stab all employees in the back, corporate will not invest in their store employees, , corp refuses to ask store employees how they can make store better/ more efficient. did away with tuition assistance.

    Advice to Management

    Ask store employees what could make store better, they are there everyday facing customers and listening to customers suggestions. Invest in employees that have stuck around, award employees that have earned it , to bring up moral and give employees a sense of importance. They should all be making more per hour than at a fast food place.

  8. "Great opportunity for advancement and leadership growth."

    Pros

    Quality of life is better than most retailers. Many opportunities for people who want to grow and invest in themselves through continued development plans. New CEO with passion and vision to grow the business not just squeeze the team to do more.

    Cons

    Labor has continued to shrink over the years. Online competitors are challenging the space making it hard to be competitive with pricing.

    Advice to Management

    Keep challenging the people below you to innovate. The people on the ground have the best ideas.
