Assistant Store Manager (Current Employee) – Sterling, VA – April 27, 2013
Ok company to work for have plenty of resources available for learning and training associates.Traveling 75% of time spent away home. The most enjoyable part of the job was watching the new store site go from a building empty and under construction to a finished product that the customers are excited about shopping at.
Cashier/Sales Associate/Costumer Service (Current Employee) – NM – December 7, 2016
Great work environment. The managers are reasonable, easy to get along with, understanding, relaxed, and overall good people. They work around school schedules and other work schedules ( if you have another job). The staff is friendly as well. The pay is .75 above minimum wage and get incentives for sales. Rewards for ethics.
The only thing I don't like about the job is the pressure they put on us to up-sale.
Too much pressure on the cashiers to sell items. We don't work on the sales floor!
Office Depot was a great place to work. My managers were great and the work associates were very easy to get along with. Pay was the only issue. Other than the pay, every other aspect of working for Office Depot was pretty nice.

Sales Consultant (Former Employee) – Virginia – December 5, 2016
This place was nice because of how hard we worked as a team. Uniform is nice. Co-workers are nice too. The manager is EXTREMELY kind and willing to help out which is rare! However because of the low pay and hours I couldn't stick around. I noticed other OD stores pay a buck higher than the one I worked at.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Warner Robins, GA 31093 – December 5, 2016
Steady work always something to do. The management team was excellent to work for. The employees became friends with them afterwards and still in contact with. I was a computer tech during that time and was the best department I worked in.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Greeley, CO – December 2, 2016
At OfficeMax, your job is to help customers make sure they find the products they need. I learned basic cashiering duties here and a little bit of sales, but I did not feel I was adequately trained in this area. My co-workers were very friendly and helpful. The hardest part of the job is making sure the store was clean and orderly at the end of the day, it was a fairly large store and there were not very many of us there to close it, making it a hefty amount of work after store hours. However, with friendly coworkers, it made it easier.
supplies (Former Employee) – Montgomery, AL – December 2, 2016
I had the greatest experience at Office Depot. I started as a cashier and worked my way into the copy and print department. I learned how to work with people in the most difficult times. Having to finalize multiple orders within time frames taught me how to be patient not just with customers but also with my co-workers and myself. If any of us were short on time, we always lend a helping hand; rather risking the customer being angry at any of us or the company. Our manager seemed to take their job personal. What I mean by that is she made sure no matter what we were equipped and knowledgeable to take care of each customer. The hardest part of my job was accepting the fact that their was no hard part. The most enjoyable part of my job was basically just doing my job to the fullest.
Department Manager (Former Employee) – Memphis, TN – December 1, 2016
I began working for the copy and print department and was promoted in 9 months to management. I enjoyed working for this company. The benefits and pay was good. We were more like a family and it was fun to work with my team.
