    I worked at Office Depot full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Working for OfficeMax for 12+ years, was fantastic. Great people to work with and a fantastic internal support staff. Solid company.

    Cons

    After OfficeMax was bought by Office Depot, everything went downhill. Fantastic support teams were outsourced and it resulted in extremely poor internal and external customer support. Customers were not receptive of the change. Reductions in workforce were a result, as to be expected, but have not stopped over past two years. Office Depot does NOT have the same commitment to employees or customers that OfficeMax had.

    I worked at Office Depot full-time

    Pros

    Ethical Company, great training. Loved my co-workers.

    Cons

    Lay off's, which can result in the loss of valuable employees with years of tenure, experience and knowledge that can never be replaced by new hires. Listen to your employees in the field.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention when having layoff's. Don't allow employee's to just be a number and let analytics make decisions.

    It provides for a good summer job experience as the summer season is their busiest and they hire lots. Exposure to lots of different things related to paper such as design programs and processes for posters, business cards and digital artwork

    Stressful setting with little guidance at times. Customer orders can pile on very quickly and there are usually only two or three workers on shift at the copy center half of office max
