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

    Pros

    I had a wonderful time working at Office Depot over two years. The manager always communicated what he expected of us and tried to impress upon everyone the importance of good customer service.

    The company is also flexible on time off as long as there is staff you let management know in advance of your plans. In the case of any issues, I was always able to work something out with my supervisors.

    Cons

    There weren't any negatives that I experienced working there.

    Advice to Management

    For the managers that support their employees and the value of good customer service, keep doing a great job!

    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.

    No cons, not for me anyhow.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!
