Another retailer trying to do too much

Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee)
Columbus, OH

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

ConsToo 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 Senior ManagementToo 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

    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
