    Pros

    Overall there is a good, but not great, culture. People are treated decently and the company has a good set of core values. Compensation is competitive, but nothing special.

    Cons

    Promotional opportunities are limited. Company is shrinking due to it's integration with OfficeMax. There will be fewer locations of both retail stores and distribution centers. Information is not shared widely but is held among a few key people.

    Good company but not all departments are great

    Pros

    They have a great on-boarding process to familiarize new hires with the culture. The main campus (hq) is awesome. The building is huge and has a car wash, dry cleaning drop-off, credit union, cafeteria and post office. The company also seems to care about employees and holds various events through out the year. I think the company itself is a great one despite the current hectic period.

    Cons

    While the company is good, it's huge which means each department is kind of doing its own thing. Unfortunately, I am in a department that's very scattered and seems to be a target. Our processes change daily (literally) and we're held to a different standard. All eyes seem to be on the department and it's uncomfortable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat departments fairly and hold everyone to the same standard.

    Pros

    Easy job and time flies by since there is always something to do. Great way to gain customer service experience.

    Cons

    Some of the challenges there can usually be caused when there is little staff to assist in daily tasks. Tasks begin to accumulate and store becomes messy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop cutting hours when there are many tasks to get accomplished. Always have backup personnel and maintain current staff motivated.
