Good job while in school

ImPress Specialist (Former Employee)
Schaumburg, IL

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

ProsMost of the people are fun to work with. Simple work attire that is comfortable. Pretty flexible when it comes to accommodating your schedule. Paid higher than minimum wage. Gave me good experience in print production.

ConsThey are really focused on selling MaxAssurance plans, credit cards, and suggestive selling. Had to deal with some unusual or irate customers. Store tended to be understaffed.

Advice to Senior ManagementReview promotional signing methods. From week to week there is a lot of redundant signing that gets taken down just to be put up the next week.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
