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

Pros

The associates are great and friendly
Managers try to work around your schedule for work

Cons

1. Pay isn't high enough to make me want to stay
2. Some of the customer make you want to lose your minds
3. Tech that we have to use ( cash registers, Impress computer) all out dated and slow which doesn't make our customers happy either
4. Have been teased for 3 years on advancement in the company. I have just given up.
5. Always about sales

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay raises
New tech for the stores
To many questions you have to ask the customers, maxperks, godaddy, plcc, mimedia, Paper, then you have to tell them about the survey. becoming very tedious.
Remember every store is different and everything won't work for every store.

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

    Pros

    Friendly staff, Interesting customers, Flexible hours, Competent management, and moderate expectations. There is a lot of room for advancement if you stay busy and do your job. Self motivation is the key to success at OfficeMax.

    Cons

    Can sometimes be repetitious. If you can't talk to people or know what rapport means then you shouldn't work here. You will have weeks where sales are phenomenal and others where you're barely braking even. Keep your head up and focus on your goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Innovation is the lifeblood of any company but please pace yourself. Can sometimes be overwhelming.
