Co-workers can be wonderful, upper management destroys morale
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Clovis, CA – September 28, 2017
Office Depot/Max is the kind of job you get as a college student looking for better work. They do NOT pay enough for the amount of work required for the positions of Copy and Print and Technology Services. Upper management constantly hounds stores for more productivity, all the while cutting payroll, benefits, etc. Corporate makes questionable decisions constantly; like forcing employees to work during hurricanes or shortly after them. (In Florida and Puerto Rico during/after Irma 2017.) This company isn't going to last for much longer, I give it another 5-10 years. Getting promoted for this company doesn't give you any incentives, unless you become store manager or co store manager, which is as far as you can go. The type of customer base for this company is just as toxic as the corporation itself, however there are the occasional good ones in there. The hardest time of the year for OD/OM is the end of summer for Back to School sales, which is when they get the most customers.
Flexible Hours, Some Benefits, Can be challenging at times
Horrible Management, Underpaid, No Career Advancement
