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

    Pros

    Easy scheduling, can work around your own timetable, learn to handle stress and costumers, meet new people. SM is usually a good person.

    Cons

    Career ladder is steep, so don't look forward to that unless you have some experience with management roles and look forward to that climb, high turnover in general for floor associates, and pushing services onto customers for a chance of possible monthly compensation, rather than just better pay or other incentives.

    Advice to Management

    Stop Cutting Hours, Lowest denominator to cut costs, but only having 4-5 people in store at any time, especially during back to school, or holidays means there are no associates to help customers when we are all taking care of the huge lines at register and Copy and Print. I understand the concept of cross ingraining, and its actually a good idea, but don't use that as a fall back to actually having people in store, it doesn't matter how well trained anyone is when we cant call for backup because the backup is already trying to assist 5 people. Please put more people in store, give us better hours, stop spending money on services for store locations that don't get sales for them (recon sentinel) and better wages based on experience and sales numbers. South Florida Stores also always have the AC turned low to save costs, the stores are constantly at 78 degrees and customers constantly complain about the heat.
