Pretty Decent

Sales Consultant (Current Employee)

ProsGreat employees,
flexible schedule
easy job
You get some commission
Great job if this is your first job

ConsCan be very boring at times
Customers complaining about prices (which are too high)
Some work is tedious
They focus on sales A LOT which can be annoying if you're just working part time and you barely get any commission
Corporate can be very unhelpful and it seems like they make us do things in an disorganized fashion.
Pushing a lot of services that nobody wants

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    The best retail experience that I've had

    Assistant Store Manager (Current Employee)
    San Jose, CA

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


    Pros: There is plenty of opportunity for advancement if you demonstrate the appropriate skills. Turnover is low and the relatively small staff makes for great team-building.… Cons: It's retail. Some days are more exhausting than others. I work in a fairly affluent area and a high percentage of our customer… Advice to Senior Management: If you're going to focus on something(s), make it only 1-3 things. Don't come out with a new "focus" every day. More accountability… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
