A company going through a lot of changes.

Customer Solutions Manager (Current Employee)

I have been working at Office Depot full-time for more than 10 years

ProsGood benefits, as a whole my time has been mostly positive. Flexible schedule. Decent pay.

ConsChanging environment brought on by our merger with Office Max. Hourly constraints for part time associates. A great deal of emphasis put on things that don't help us help our customers. Putting too much into "lists" instead of just "doing it".

Advice to Senior ManagementSpend more time valuing hard workers instead of butt kissers. Some associates are not good with asking for accolades (verbatim reviews) this does not mean that they are not great with customers or good at their jobs. Realize that within the four walls there is a lot more going on than what you are hearing on the radio while sitting in our parking lot. We have real people with real needs to assist, being a cheerleader on the radio is not our main objective, our customers are.

Losing my job to "off shore" persons

Customer Service Phone Representative (Current Employee)

I have been working at Office Depot full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGood benefits. The people I work with are like family.

ConsI recently learned my job is being eliminated. I've been there 4-1/2 yrs. I have to still go in for another 7 months and do my best so I won't be fired and lose my severance. It is extremely hard to deal will some customers and be cheerful when we know our jobs are going over seas.

Advice to Senior ManagementThink about the "little people" at the bottom that are the ones that actually bring in the money. Its very hurtful know that the new CEO lives in a multi-million dollar home with a multi-million dollar bonus and we are losing our jobs and they are being "out sourced. A fancy name for sending our jobs to another company. Some of us don't have someone to help us pay our bills when we are done.

Fun while it lasted....

Account Executive (Former Employee)
Milwaukee, WI (US)

I worked at Office Depot full-time for more than a year

ProsOffice Depot Inc. as a whole is a good company. Customer support and management are good. Internal support very helpful. Flexible work schedule and good pay- if you make your sales goals. Great customers!

ConsI worked for OfficeMax Workplace as an Account Executive for 1 year. My position was elimnated ..Company merger with Office Depot and the restructuring eliminated 200 sales positions and 100 DSM positions- not including other upper management and other positions. Very dissapointed the way were laid off- conference call and given 1 day notice! Very sad the way they treat their loyal hardworking employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe honest with your employees. Treat them with respect. If they are performing well and doing a great job- let them keep their jobs!
