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

Pros

Opportunity to advance quickly if you are a star performer. Most coworkers are motivated and have a team atmosphere. Typically do not hire people right out of college. Many have a good work/life balance and lots of people have kids.

Cons

Merger with Depot just announced so future is uncertain but most likely there will be opportunities. Lack of training when you start depending on what department you are in.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep taking care of your people - they are the most important asset

    Benefits, fun environment, advancement opportunities.

    It's retail, no set schedule. If you're not a seller you will have a tough time here.

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

    Pros

    Flexible hours, decent pay, a corporate office that tries to be there for associates.

    Cons

    retail, bonuses seem to be paid out slowly, they sometimes don't tell you things till last minute.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    better communication at corporate level to make sure things are rolled out properly. More advertisement for ctrl center services. Change goals to a store by store basis.
