    Nothing

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

    Pros

    Competitive wages
    Social atmosphere
    Methodical work pattern
    Opportunity for advancement within your district
    Fair, unbiased, civil treatment at most stores.

    Cons

    Your employment experience can vary wildly from store to store. You can train at one store and create an outlook of the company based on that store, then be completely blindsided by the tactics and procedures of your home store.

    Advice to Management

    Strive for uniformity throughout your multiple stores, and strive for equal voice between male and female associates and managers.

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

    Pros

    I was lucky I had a store manger that was very understanding of my time schedule. So in terms of scheduling, it was very flexible. My coworkers were great and we were all very chill and got our work done.

    Cons

    Low on staff. Some managers favor some employees over the other. Constantly pushing protection plans and reward sign ups to the point you become a robot at executing these sales strategies.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in your employees. Give them a larger reward for selling protection plans and getting reward sign ups. Treat your employees as people helping the company rather than slaves working a minimum wage job.
