    its a company you work for that puts a pay check in your pocket and the end of the week

    no pride in work ethic, no leadership, most of the people are just plain stupid and have no business running a store.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    take time finding good people that take ownership in there work rather than dead beats that will mess up everyone that works there

    I worked at Office Depot full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    - process-oriented so you know the standards
    - most managers are personable
    - room to grow with the company due to high turnover
    - company seems to be getting better

    Cons

    - Inconsistent direction from leadership, the company seems to be struggling to move forward at times
    - Pay increases are limited to annual reviews and are minimal

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Ethics are important to most people; need to terminate people who don't follow the rules
    - Consider that retail is a people-business, not a product-business
