The Secret - S2-E13

Continuity mistake: In this episode Pam and Jim are talking about how Jim used to have a crush on Pam when she first started here. This implies that Jim was working here when Pam was hired. However, in 4-3: Launch Party Pam says that when Jim first started working there she said, "Enjoy this moment, because you're never going to back to this time before you met your desk-mate, Dwight." These two scenes contradict each other.

Survivor Man - S4-E7

Continuity mistake: In "The Alliance" (1-4), Pam says that the next office birthday is Meredith's, but it isn't until the next month. Later, in "Survivor Man", it is said that Meredith's birthday is at the end of 'Birthday Month', when many employees have birthdays close together. It wouldn't be possible for Meredith's birthday to both be the next office birthday but also at the end of the following month, which is stated to have many other birthdays in it.

Andy's Ancestry - S9-E3

Continuity mistake: Nellie and Pam are driving along, discussing what to make up about people's ancestry. Here, we see the same background go past Pam, a driveway with a black SUV on the right, and a white SUV on the left. This shot is only repeated in the angle where we can only see Pam, and the view out of the passenger side window. The car is driving along as normal, we see the two cars on the driveway, and then the car turns a corner, and we see the same shot all over again.

Hot Girl - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: When Michael takes Katy (the purse lady) around the office, she worries about leaving her purses unguarded so while walking by Phyllis and Stanley's desk clump he asks Ryan to look after the purses, but Ryan says he can't because he's "installing File-Share on all the computers." Both Stanley and Phyllis are noticeably absent from the shot. Stanley's desk is empty and Ryan is sitting at Phyllis' desk. Michael and Katy take a few steps and walk into the kitchen area. In the background we can now see that both Stanley and Phyllis are now sitting at their desks and Ryan is nowhere in sight. There wasn't enough time for everyone to switch locations like that as only a moment had passed between the shots.
