I have been working at OfficeMax full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

The benefits are very good. Between 401k, medical and a generous vacation allotment the company take care of you.

Cons

Constant change. In search of better processes the company is constantly changing how we do things and unfortunately most time is for the worst.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop micro-managing. Empower your people to make decisions. Listen to what the people in the field are actually saying.

    Pros

    Small, close, fun staff. If you can sell you can make some SPIFFS..Easy Easy job

    Cons

    Lazy management..Lazy people..Repetitive jobs and tasks....2 or 3 people do all the work to keep the store functioning..Low pay for being able to do any position in the store..No chance for promotion if you are a good worker

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring back some of the stuff that works like coaching each other and check the security systems more to catch fraud to payroll...Reward the hard workers
