Work hard and you'll be recognized

Furniture Specialist - Key Holder (Current Employee) Salt Lake City, UT

ProsOfficemax wants people who want to work. Come in do what's neccesary work hard. You'll be noticedand things run smoothly when we all know our roles.

ConsBesides the rediculously low payrate, which the state considers to be beneath the poverty level, the biggest problem is the nonexistence of communication. The left hand never knows what the right is doing. Plano revision changes two weeks in a row. Decisions to impliment new signage are made but the new format starts printing out at store level two weeks early with no direction. New standards come down at least once a month when someone at a desk, not in a store, changes thier mind again.

Advice to Senior ManagementPay your people a real living wage so they truly feel like your people in word and deed. Hold corporate departments as accountable as you do the lowliest cashier on the sales flor.
