Fast-paced retailer facing a period of change

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Naperville, IL

ProsThere is a lot of potential for the future, since the company is currently ranked third behind SPLS and ODP ...

Cons... Whether OMX transforms its strategies into a position where it can beat out ODP for the number 2 spot is yet to be seen. Analysts have been speculating a merger between OMX and ODP for years, so that's always a possibility, too.

Advice to Senior ManagementCreate clear, concise strategies that employees can get behind and take an ownership stake in.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Another retailer trying to do too much

    Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee)
    Columbus, OH

    I worked at OfficeMax full-time for more than 3 years


    Pros: The people I worked with and the customers made it… Cons: Too many pots on the stove, OfficeMax wanted to offer everything but nothing 100%, from less then perfect Control Center… Advice to Senior Management: Too many managers hired and promoted before their time. No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More

    Lots of ups & downs. Management doesn't support mothers

    Human Resources Director (Former Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    I worked at OfficeMax full-time for more than 3 years


    Pros: Some flexibility with schedule and ability to manage my team. Cons: Never received annual review or increase upon returning from maternity leave like all other employees did. Boss regularly made me come into office even though… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
