    Pros

    They have a wide variety of products to choose from.

    Cons

    The workers are chosen very poorly. Managers don't hire competent sales help. They are paid the same as competent employees. The managers are just trying to get warm bodies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would advise the management to be consistent and hire qualified employees.

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

    Pros

    Overall there is a good, but not great, culture. People are treated decently and the company has a good set of core values. Compensation is competitive, but nothing special.

    Cons

    Promotional opportunities are limited. Company is shrinking due to it's integration with OfficeMax. There will be fewer locations of both retail stores and distribution centers. Information is not shared widely but is held among a few key people.
