Pros

Hours are pretty decent;
Never off the chain busy unless it is Back to School or Black Friday.

Pay is kinda low, but not unreasonable;
Tough time getting hired from within for jobs;
Company is merging with Office Depot and stores will eventually have to close.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make your employees feel secure. Give us some more information about things that are going on, not only in the company as a whole, but even down to little districts.

    The biggest problem with office max is the costumers.

    I worked at OfficeMax part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The pay was fine as a part time employee. All of the other employees were fun to work with. Plenty to do in the store to keep you busy without being monotonous.

    Cons

    Wanted us to push warranty plans that most customers are not interested in. And lots of time was spent refacing shelves after customer s randomly put things back out of place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My store has had new management since I have left and been reorganized. Looks better and starting at zero has helped the shelves be properly faced.

    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.
