What do you do at Office Depot?
I am currently a Quality and Reporting Specialist, which, translated, means I am dealing with all the reporting and quality checks for the UK side. Within the Q&R Team, we are calculating all the Key Performance Indicators and deliver the results to the teams. We are also doing the quality checks for the UK side, which aims to give a general overview on trends, strengths or weaknesses.
How has working for Office Depot been like for you so far?
I have been with the company since Sept 2007. The last 5 years have been a great learning and growing opportunity, as I have performed various roles within the company. I started as an assistant in a Collection team, I then was a specialist in the Risk Assessment team, then in a Collections team. Finally, I took the role in the Quality and Reporting pilot project, which, along with my other two colleagues I’ve turned it into a successful one. I was lucky to be around people with a great variety of personalities and skills which helped me grow as well, and it continues to be so.
What excites you about working at Office Depot in the future?
I enjoy working in a professional environment where we all try to add value to what we do. I also enjoy the endless possibilities, projects and activities in which everyone can get involved into. I like the fact that we ‘work hard’ and ‘play hard’ in the same time. Office Depot is never boring and it depends on you what opportunities you take.
What’s your advice to people who want to join Office Depot?
Whoever is in search of a challenging role, alert rhythm and a skills developing environment is perfect for Office Depot. The selection process is designed to test in a short period of time your compatibility with various roles. I would suggest a sincere prior self analysis in order to answer honestly to any questions that might be asked. I would like to have colleagues who are accountable for their actions and go the extra mile when faced with a challenge. I would like to see in my new colleagues the curiosity to find out what’s beyond any situation and the courage to challenge with solid arguments whatever deserves to be challenged.
