    Former Employee - ImPress Specialist in Schaumburg, IL

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

    Pros

    Most 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.

    Cons

    They 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 ManagementAdvice

    Review 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.
