Pros

Good team of people at my store, managers are very helpful,flexible schedule.

Cons

Pay is terrible, oppurtunities to move into the corporate office are almost nill even if you work for the company already.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

to senior management: we need to have enough of the items in the store that are in the ads.

    I have been working at OfficeMax

    Pros

    Large span of merchandise
    Spiffs for sale of warranties and in-store tech services
    Relatively light amount of mean customers
    Emphasis on delighting the customer vs. making sales

    Cons

    Average pay
    Little other compensation besides warranties and in-store tech (competitiveness between associates, other associates taking credits for your warranty, etc.)
    Little actual training--must learn on the fly and hit the ground running
