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

    Pros

    They were never really "slammed" like say Best Buy or the other guys on the weekends.
    Relatively small staff, so everyone works closely with one another.

    Cons

    No cons, not for me anyhow.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

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

    Pros

    Employee Discounts and first dibs on clearance tech

    Cons

    Maybe a bit chaotic. Corporate changes things quickly and everyone had to scramble to make up the difference.

    Advice to Management

    My co-workers were fairly clueless- I would pay more and be picky about who you hire - that way you have a few employees doing good work instead of a bunch of poor employees working against eachother

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

    Pros

    drama free work place. managers are always reasonable. All the employees are totally different, making it a great place to work and be around people you aren't used to. This also gives customers comfort in finding someone they feel comfortable approaching if they need assistance.

    Cons

    The pay isn't that great. The attire is a red collared shirt and black pants that are not provided. No commission.

    I have been working at Office Depot full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    As a seasoned Store Manager, I have been able to build an extremely strong team which makes my work/life balance amazing. It's all about your people and how you train them.

    Cons

    Many changes in the organization. You either decide to get on board and excel or stay stuck in your old ways....Which doesn't seem to work out for anyone.

    Advice to Management

    Payroll cuts have gotten out of control. I understand stores can't be profitable running certain % of Payroll...However; it just makes things (including hitting conversion and sales goals) more difficult and stressful for your store associates.

    Pros

    Great pay and uncapped bonus structure. Vehicle allowance, mileage bonus, kick backs from partnerships, work from home and on the road mentality.

    Cons

    You are thrown right into the lions pit with little experience and training. Bring your A+ Game. You are point of contact for building your own book of business
