I have been working at OfficeMax part-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Flexible hours, small tight nit crew. Fun environment when you aren't running around trying to get things done. Good work experience for first time job.

Cons

I've been with OMX for 4 and a half years, and all I know is that after all this time I still don't understand why the company does half the things it does. They are so pointless and waste payroll that is already limited, resulting in serious under-staffing. I do the job 3 people would at another company. It's exhausting, and I always feel under appreciated.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pick a plan and stick with it. Make sure policies and actions make sense. Don't just throw something out there and hope that it will work. Appreciate the employees you have, and don't run them off by letting SMs and ASMs treat them like garbage.

    I worked at OfficeMax part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The company hires the right people. Marketing and promotional have gotten better in the last year.

    Cons

    Even though the company hires the right people, they tend to treat their employees like they are meaningless and fail to see the value of these employees. You will be exposed to corporate "fluff" and demanded to produce unrealistic goals. This company has been rated as one of the top companies you shouldn't work for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to treat their associates with respect and value their employees more.
