More bad than good.

Impress Supervisor (Current Employee)

ProsCompany has the potential to be a lot of fun and does offer opportunity for those wanting to move up. They take care of the employees who make it to management and are always looking for new products and new ways to improve.

ConsThere is no payroll to give. You are overworked and understaffed. They tell you that if you hit sales goals you can get more staff. If you are understaffed however, you will never hit your sales goals. Base pay starts at minimum wage which is pathetic. Most retailers are giving $10 an hour. Office Max caters to professionals, but only has payroll to hi

Advice to Senior ManagementYou will never hit your comp numbers if you keep cutting payroll and saddling your people with too much work. .They will not perform and in many cases cannot perform under the conditions. (Walk a mile in their shoes)

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    It's all about the profits, not the employees or even customers.

    Store Associate (Former Employee)

    I worked at OfficeMax full-time for less than a year


    Pros: Flexible work schedule. Kind, helpful, patient coworkers made it worthwhile.… Cons: Untimely move to partner w/ GoDaddy webhosting services after superbowl ads that objectify women. Self centered, arrogant and condescending managers who only care about selling Max… Advice to Senior Management: Performance, communication and leadership skills training for store managers and assistant store managers. The PIF program is sad. Employees nominate one another and 1 employee… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
