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

Pros

The people are really fun to work with and the job is not too difficult. Not too much is expected out of us but it's not an easy job either. I love dealing with the nice people and I like what I do. I started out from the bottom and am working my way up the chain as I type.

Cons

The customers can be difficult at times but not all of them. Also, there are a ton of conference calls which can get annoying. The logistics of the freight is flawed and the packing of freight from my distributor is impossible at times. Not to mention the way they have us reset the store seems to be irrational.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get the resets under control and have more accountability for PowerMax. The rhyme and reason for POG changes is very frustrating for stores.

    I have been working at OfficeMax part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours. Management is typically decent.

    Cons

    Corporate is stupid. Saturday nights are the worst nights of all, ad night. You spend 5-6 hours putting out ad for the next week. Then, next saturday you take all of that ad down. And put up almost the same exact ad with some different ones. Very time consuming and pathetic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix your ads. Customers don't like seeing stickers all over the aisles. Associates hate putting them up.
