Tedious tasks, forced to push "MaxAssurance" that was a waste of money for consumers.

Pros

Gain inside knowledge of technology and software used across multiple industries. It also allowed for relatively easy advancement within the company.

Cons

Minimal pay, forced to push insurance plans on products that it wasn't really worth in the first place. Expected to meet unrealistic goals for sales of the indurance.

Advice to Management

Be more entry-level employee friendly. The decisions/actions you have taken in the past were not in the employee's best interest.

    Pros

    There are opportunities to do multiple tasks at any one time, which can sometime make time go by.

    Cons

    The opportunities to move up are challenging, communication needs major improvement and compensation should definitely be improved. Customers seem to mutually agree prices on some products are too high.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication with employees and better scheduling would improve over performance for each employee. Also, consistency among leadership would be a good thing to have.


  2. Lack of direction and integrity

    Pros

    The job was fairly easy and the people you're working with are often very down to earth people

    Cons

    The Managers are hits and misses. The good ones never seem to make it too far because they are picked up by other companies. The bad ones are a dime a dozen. They lack integrity, pushy when it comes to sells and don't mind telling you to lie to customers to get the sale, esp. when it comes to their store warranties.

    Advice to Management

    OfficeMax is not a giant like Staples or Office Depot. Head to head you cannot beat out the other two giants, find your strength and play to your strength.
