Why Retail? Why Office Depot?

Why Retail? Why Office Depot?

Office Depot, Inc. is a global supplier of office products and services. The company was incorporated in 1986 with the opening of our first retail store in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. In fiscal year 2006, we sold $15 billion of products and services to consumers and businesses of all sizes through our three business units: North American Retail Division, North American Business Solutions Division and International Division. Sales are processed through multiple channels, consisting of office supply stores, a contract sales force, internet sites, direct marketing catalogs and call centers, all supported by our network of crossdocks, warehouses and delivery operations.

Retail is a career where there is something for everyone. A career in retail could mean anything from managing a store to technology development to business-to-business sales to buying. It's up to you! Retail is one of the few industries where you get a report card every day: you know exactly how you're doing based on how the customer "voted" with their dollars.

So, if you are interested in marketing/advertising, store operations, loss prevention, store management, finance, human resources, IT and e-commerce, sales, distribution, merchandising or are an entrepreneur, then retail is the career for you.

Now that we've got you hooked on retail, why not consider working for an industry leader? No one sells more office products to more customers in more countries than Office Depot. Now that's a lot of paperclips and laptops! We invite you to learn more about Office Depot's College Recruiting program by exploring this web site.
