Pros

If you can get full-time and stay with the company for more than three years it can be really enjoyable. 21+ days of paid time off based on hours worked and years of service. 401k, affordable Delta Dental, affordable Vision(VSP). Most management members are really awesome if they havent been with the company all their life.

Cons

Poor quality health insurance through BCBS, over priced for smokers and non-smokers ~$100 a paycheck for PPO plan with a 500 deductible and 60% coverage, not really a great option unless Assistant or Store Manager. Store leadership can be crappy if they were with the company when OfficeMax was not a great company to work for 8 years ago. Extremely sales based, numbers for protection and services mean a lot about keeping your job.

Advice to Management

CEO Ravi needs to be more like exCEO Sam Duncan who cared about his employees and did monthly updates through the intranet to keep in contact with company standing.

    Pros

    Flexible great concepts for doing business... systems and processes have great potential.

    Cons

    If you are looking to advance be prepared be aware advancement style of this company is not always based on knowledge of area. In some cases candidate chosen will be soley on interview not necessarily work history.

    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.

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