Pros

If you get the right group of co-workers everything will be fine.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay your employees more than 7.50 an hour. They are worth much more.

    I worked at OfficeMax full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The customers and associates. There's always something to do to keep productive and each day is different than the next.

    Cons

    The high pressure to sell services where management was rarely positive with coaching others on their performance. Training to succeed was almost non-existent (in my location). Management had unrealistic expectations of the time required to complete tasks and would never allow the time to train others to help. Customers always come first so you can't hold it against someone for not completing tasks because they were assisting customers. Overtime is not permitted without District Manager approval and the schedule rarely allowed time to get tasks done as the company had limited payroll dollars to go around.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support your seasoned staff especially when you're new to the company. Don't take them for granted and accuse them of making you look bad.
