I have a subscription to Office 365 w/Email for each employee. Also have a subscription to SkyDrive Personal edition and I want to know if I can create personal folders for each employee w/Common folder for accounts.

Can this be done ? I don't see an admin tool for users/groups/home folders ...

do you mean office 365 Business Essentials? http://office.microsoft.com/en-ca/business/office-365-business-essentials-FX103887194.aspx 
If so then each use has skydrive (onedrive for business 1TB) that can be shared

OneDrive for Business has SharePoint driving it.

Each person gets a dedicated ODfB "drive". It is a Library. If you know SharePoint then setting up sharing for all should be fairly straightforward.

I was chatting w/MS support and they explained that what I needed was the Business Edition to create an office environment with a common folder and personal folders for each user.  I was looking around for an admin tool to set it up.  What  I am looking for is a simpler way to do this with personal editions.  At-least until the employee count gets above 5 users.

Free camera licenses with purchase of My Cloud NAS

Milestone Arcus software is compatible with thousands of industry-leading cameras for added flexibility. Upon installation on your My Cloud NAS, you will receive two (2) camera licenses already enabled in the software. And for a limited time, get additional camera licenses FREE.

The Personal Edition of OneDrive has the ability to share with specific Microsoft IDs. It can be done but is awkward.

OneDrive for Business that is included in certain O365 plans has the ability built-in to share Libraries within the organization but also have exclusive Libraries for users or user groups.

I suggest upgrading to Business.

If they are going to use it for business purposes then get the product meant for that purpose.

One should not use a hatchback to do a pickup truck's job. ;)
