    I have been working at OfficeMax part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You get to help people out and the staff is friendly.

    Cons

    You can get really nasty customers and manager pushes to get reward sign ups and Protection Plans.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people who are positive and energetic since our staff can get short handed.

    Copy Center Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Modesto, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at OfficeMax (Modesto, CA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    They have you wait in furniture till you're call up to be interview in a small back room behind the tech counter. The interview manager was very intimidating and after all they question he asked you during the interview. His exact words if you don't get a call by tomorrow means someone out shine you.
