I have been working at OfficeMax full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Nice time off amount given to employees

Cons

If you cant sell, the company does not appreciate you.
Make employees to push items that the customers don't necessarily need or want.
Pay is not much about minimum wage, but expect a lot of their employees.
Raises not frequent or meeting cost of living.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take care of your employees and celebrate wins instead of just focusing on meeting every matrix. Let employees take care of customers instead of making us focus on selling things to customers that they either do not need or are a good deal for our customers. Basically let us treat our customers treat customers like we would like to be treated.

    I have been working at OfficeMax full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Coworkers are some of the best people I've had the pleasure to work with. Store manager is one of the best bosses I've ever had in retail. DM shows that he cares, or at least pretends to.

    Cons

    Not enough payroll. Might lose job due to merger with Office Depot. To many expectations with little or no hours to complete it. Roll out new planograms with no items to stock, or send new items with no lace to put them. Corporate is completely detached from the day to day at the store level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit cutting payroll. It takes money to make money and by not having enough associates in the store, how are we suppose to offer the "Best total solution"? Quit rolling out new planograms with no new items to stock. Also quit sending new items whose planograms has not been updated.

    Pros

    Lower Management was fair and encouraging

    Cons

    Lowest pay for amount of work at retail especially with the amount of expertise expected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward your employees for being knowledgeable and not just for selling your warranty schemes.
