    Pros

    Decent pay. Nice people and management are friendly. Normal office perks like food/snacks/drinks. Overall positive environment.

    Cons

    Not a typical sales job where if you want to work hard you can make good money. Your based mainly on the type of book of business you get.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees more on what works with the customer. Make the commission more incentive on the sale. Bonuses should be pain monthly not quarterly.

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

    Pros

    Good Retail company to work for. If in the right district and store there are a lot of growth opportunities.

    Cons

    As a ASM I struggled to hit 40 hrs a week consistently especially around June where payroll is skimpy. A lot of the time I would have to use my paid time off in order to hit 40 hours. It's a retail job and as the ASM you can expect to close frequently and work most weekends.

    Advice to Management

    Need to be more realistic with payroll dollars a ton of stores cannot finish the tasking list with the payroll given. Also you wouldn't lose as many associates as quickly.


  9. "Changing culture"
