Stereotypical retail experience.

Sales Associate-cashier (Former Employee)
Atlanta, GA

I worked at OfficeMax part-time for less than a year

ProsIf you get along with management and your fellow co-workers (which I fortunately did) it's not a bad place to work. Fairly flexible scheduling, the opportunity to play with the latest tech toys, and (especially handy if you're in school) a decent employee discount.

ConsYou're expected to push products and warranties that you know are useless. They also have a habit of running vaguely worded promotions which can lead irate and confused customers that believe you're trying to rip them off.

Advice to Senior ManagementImprove the copy on the promotions so there's no way the general public can misunderstand them. Also the employee incentive program could use tweaking-warranties are not an easy sell in their current package.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

At times, it's very fulfilling and extremely frustrating.
