I have been working at OfficeMax full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Cross trained in all departments, company is growing towards technology, easy set planograms, store processes easily learned

Cons

micro managed from corporate level, lots and lots of conference calls, pay increases are horrible if moving up within the company, tasking is discouraged but there are many changes with signage and product that have to be completed within set time frames.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Allow the managers within their building to run their business. Give more positive feedback or constructive feedback.

    I worked at OfficeMax

    Pros

    Open door policy, easy job, same stuff different day.

    Cons

    Very poor pay, everyone is part-time (except management) no benefits. Expects you to meet weekly quotas but you don't earn much commission at all. No room for advancement or formal full-time position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more considerate about your workers we work hard and we are the face of the company stop giving us nothing when we are bringing in the money and customers.

    I have been working at OfficeMax part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Non-Managers not held responsible for the store's performance as much as the key carriers are. Most of the people are awesome.

    Cons

    For the work you're doing, compared to other companies, they don't pay very much at all. There's a guy with the same job as me, and he's been working there 6 years, and I hired on at 5 cents less than him.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your people what they are worth
