I have been working at OfficeMax part-time for less than a year

Pros

Excellent team at this store. Great management. SPIFF incentives. Flexibility. One of the nicest places I have worked. Continuous training. Room to advance within the company.

Cons

The starting pay is low.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at OfficeMax full-time for 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 ManagementAdvice

    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??????
