What do you do at Office Depot?
As a Process Analyst in AP one of the main tasks is… “Elementary, my dear Watson”, to investigate, almost like Sherlock Holmes did (without, of course, the field work). The imperative to which everything is subsumed is that of paying vendors’ invoices in time – but for that one needs to check all the key details and make sure the process unfolds correctly and the procedures are respected. Therefore a good eye for details and a good sense for patterns is needed, paired with tenacity, excellent knowledge of financial parameters within which we operate and excellent handling of information – all the sides (vendors, budget holders, accounting teams, superiors) must be informed accurately and on time on the status of various invoices, payments, credits, etc. Attention to all details is of paramount importance and common sense is a prerequisite.
How has working for Office Depot been like for you so far?
Working for Office Depot so far was like writing an awesome book (sometimes it’s a thriller, sometimes a romance:) ) where the team of “the good” (the attentive, the common sensed, the diligent, the out-of-the-box thinkers) conquers a universe of doubts, questions and figures. To push forward the book comparison, I’d say working in Office Depot so far was a fine blend of The Chronicles of Narnia and the Game of Thrones.
What excites you about working at Office Depot in the future?
The extraordinary way in which everybody mobilizes to solve a query and the great sense of team working together to achieve the common goal. Also the superb sense of humor of the persons I’m working with, both locally and internationally.
What’s your advice to people who want to join Office Depot?
Brace yourselves – great times are coming! (Bring your common sense and logic, leave your fears on the porch).
