    Pros

    Lots of nice people work at Office Depot/Office Max, I like meeting the customers they have some interesting stories.

    Spend more time training prior to the first couple of shifts, besides just watching videos.

    I have been working at Office Depot full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Professional customer base. Clear performance goals are set up for you to be successful. Performance is measured by scorecard and not hours worked. Great balance of life.
