Current Employee - Contract in Naperville, IL

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

Pros

The people and culture are great. I love the laid back environment and the people are generally really good to work with. At headquarters, not unusual to see the CEO and EVPs walking around and being, well, normal people. I think the company has a lot to offer its employees.

Cons

Some disconnect between some departments makes it difficult to get the information we need.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

trust that your employees are trying their hardest in a fragmented market and a bad economy.

    Pros

    Coworkers are friendly and fun
    Some customers actually make your day
    Job isn't hard, but it's the management that makes it unbearable

    Cons

    General Manager does not respect availability times and does not understand employees
    Short-staffed, part-time associates are usually teenagers that quit after a couple months
    Expected to sell products and services without much training
    Awful pay
    Managers spend more time in office than actually helping out their employees
    No breaks except for unpaid lunch break
    Not an ethical company at all

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix the ads
    Donating "on destroy" stuff
    Promote recycling and follow through with it
    Fixing local management
    Focus on the employees' needs
