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

    Pros

    I moved up the ranks really quickly. Since a the company is sinking, tons of management tend to jump ship, clearing room for promotions. Pay was fair my bosses were usually really supportive.

    Cons

    It's retail. Excessive sales culture, to the point where higher ups threatened General Managers' jobs if they didn't sell enough of the company's crappy tech support.

    Advice to Management

    If you want things to happen, boost payroll spending.
