Office Depot Hiring 8,000 Associates

Office Depot, a leading global provider of office products, services, and solutions, announced plans to hire 8,000 seasonal and regular retail associates during its busy back-to-school season.

Seasonal and Regular Associates 

The seasonal associates help support the increased customer traffic from parents, students and teachers shopping for all of their school supply needs. Office Depot is gearing up with additional sales consultants, stock associates, and cashiers during the peak months of July, August and September.

The positions provide opportunities for seasonal associates to gain entry-level experience while working in a retail store. Sales consultants should possess a passion for selling in a personalized sales and customer centric environment.

“As we gear up for the busy back-to-school season, hiring additional associates in our retail stores is essential so that we provide our customers with a great shopping experience. These opportunities are ideal for smiling, friendly candidates who enjoy working with people, possess a passion for selling, and thrive in a fast-paced sales environment,” said Lynn Gross, vice president of human resources for retail at Office Depot, Inc.

Faith Based Events

In 2016, Office Depot will hire 33 percent more seasonal back-to-school associates compared to 2015 – an increase of 2,000 more associates.

“We’re looking forward to bringing in more associates this year to ensure our customers get the best, personal service to fulfill their back-to-school shopping needs,” said Gross.

Seasonal and regular associates receive a 10 percent employee discount and a flexible schedule. Seasonal associates also have the potential to transition from a seasonal to regular position should openings become available.
