What do you do at Office Depot?
I have recently realized that I am doing what I never would have expected. I am a Team Leader. This role is more than the job description for me. I love people, I love personalities, I love challenges. I enjoy working on self-discoveries, mine and others’. I feel like whatever we decide to do we need to be accountable and give it our best. That is how I work with others.
How has working for Office Depot been like for you so far?
I still think it’s great. I have learned so much, been to so many trainings, had so much personal development opportunities. I also like that I am able to express myself, I have rights as well as obligations. I can make myself heard and listened too, and, on top of it all, I can also participate in ‘extracurricular’ activities (like the charity campaigns or the Green Board, etc.). I think it’s the perfect environment that makes us fully appreciate the opportunities and the management’s vision.
What excites you about working at Office Depot in the future?
I get to work in so many systems, with so many people, in two very different cultures. I like the people, we are all young, energetic, eager to achieve things, and Office Depot provides so many opportunities to try new things. Meetings offsite, Toastmasters, working with various systems, working in a team, etc. – these are some of the things that still keep me interested. We get new people around all the time, we have had from difficult to great experiences and I’ve had nothing but to learn from them. I also learned about my limits, what I can and cannot do, what I want and to get out of my comfort zone, which I still do, all the time.
What’s your advice to people who want to join Office Depot?
Get ready for multitasking in the most extreme sense. Get ready to meet a whole bunch of new people, to learn to work in a team. Get ready to work a lot but have fun at the same time as well.
