I worked at OfficeMax full-time (More than a year)
OfficeMax, now a part of Office Depot, is a great retailer of office supplies and business related items. The combined purchasing power of this new mega-retailer is both a blessing and a curse. As with other major consolidations of retailers this merger has cut down on the variety and selection available in many areas. However, the quality of in-store brands like Tul (the in-store office store brand of pens and merchandise) does offer customers a quality product at a reasonable price.
Product selection has been cut down upon. Customers are distressed at the loss of their favorite products. Also the change in the personalized attention given to printing center clients suffered.
Advice to Management
Provide a better transition emphasis to staff and customers. In the NOLA area there is little other competition - except from independent office supply retailers - and both staff and customers felt neglected.
I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at OfficeMax (Shakopee, MN) in May 2017.
Overall, it was a relatively simple interview. It took about 20 minutes to complete the interview. The manager was friendly and asked a few basic questions most other businesses would ask potential employers.
