I have been working at OfficeMax

Pros

Good co-workers and fun work environment. Generally get to move around and do a variety of tasks.

Cons

Little to no pay increases
Management constantly pushed the selling of extended warranty plans and became frustrated if you didn't meet goals. Often there were simply not enough opportunities to sell.

    I worked at OfficeMax full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I learned a lot there and it really helped me get ready for better opportunities. They also provided a place for employment when I needed a job.

    Cons

    I didn't feel like my best interest was put first. Any mistreatment was hidden under a rug.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Deal with any issues legally and with use choices that have your employees best interests.

    I worked at OfficeMax full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people I worked with and the customers made it worth while most of the time.

    Cons

    Too many pots on the stove, OfficeMax wanted to offer everything but nothing 100%, from less then perfect Control Center to cheap, horrible canvas wraps. Too many focuses and too much money spent on things other than really increasing business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many managers hired and promoted before their time.
