Decent job, but company operations and expectations are maddening

Store Manager (Current Employee)
Minneapolis, MN

ProsThe job itself and the day-to-day duties are on par for retail. You are given freedom to make decisions for your store without too much interference from upper management. Being a company that caters to small business, the busy times are Monday-Friday so getting weekends off is easy.

ConsOfficeMax expects a Best Buy selling culture with a quarter of the payroll. Also, the company is doing well to adapt to 21st century business by focusing on technology, but the technology the company requires us to use is obsolete 10 times over and makes you look silly.

Advice to Senior ManagementGive us the tools we need to do everything you ask.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
