Office Depot in big hiring spree


Office Depot isn’t about to let its rivals get the better of it during one of its busiest times of the year.

The office-supply retailer plans to hire a total of 8,000 seasonal and regular associates for the back-to-school season, up 33%, or 2,000 associates, over last year.

"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 Lynn Gross, VP of human resources, Office Depot.

Office Depot, whose purchase by rival Staples was scrapped due to antitrust concerns, said it is gearing up with additional sales consultants, stock associates, and cashiers during the peak months of July, August and September. Seasonal and regular associates will receive a 10% employee discount and a flexible schedule.

Seasonal associates also have the potential to transition from a seasonal to regular position should openings become available.
