    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 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??????
