great environment, frustrating changes

Contract (Current Employee)
Naperville, IL

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

ProsThe 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.

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

Advice to Senior Managementtrust that your employees are trying their hardest in a fragmented market and a bad economy.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Great coworkers, but management is horrible

Sales Associate (Current Employee)

I have been working at OfficeMax part-time for more than a year


Pros: Coworkers are friendly and fun Some customers actually make your day Job… 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… Advice to Senior Management: Fix the ads Donating "on destroy" stuff Promote recycling and follow through… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
