Like most retailers, most changes make things more difficult.............

Assistant Store Manager (Current Employee)
Charlotte, NC

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

ProsOf the Big 3 office suppy chains, still visually the best.
Strong focus on the customer
Good Product Protection program (MaxAssurance)
A Day Made Better program

ConsPayroll hours make it tough to get things done.
Associate discount program is weak
Too many conference calls
Reports, reports, reports

Advice to Senior ManagementMilitary discounts are asked about daily. I think its disrespectful in these times not to offer it.
Lets get out of the Ink Refill market.
To maintain a professional appearance, you've got to provide more shirts, or offer replcements more than once per year.
PIF program is good, but, $5????? I mean, it beats the candy and soft drink, but, $5??????

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
