Offer a bit more pay and you'll have more long term employees.

    I have been working at OfficeMax part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexibile and fun. I love the people I work with. One of the nicest jobs i've had. Always training on new stuff.

    Cons

    Even if you are well qualified you have to sell the max insurances to get anywhere. This leaves some of the store managers as great salesmen or women but terrible at running a store. Not that great of pay and even if you work in the morning and task you will not get a raise without the sales.

    Advice to Management

    Start at better pay and more consistancy. Instead of someone getting hired at minimum wage and someone else getting hired at almost eight dollars.

    I have been working at OfficeMax full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Of 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

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    Military 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??????
