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

    Pros

    It is located fairly close to my home and with the right managers the job becomes fun.

    Cons

    Some of the people that go in there to shop are not the nicest people. Or they don't bother to listen to you at all. Odd hours; Why is OfficeMax open till 9? A bit late to copy things or to buy office supplies.

    Advice to Management

    i think the store manager as of now is doing an excellent job. I feel motivated when he speaks very highly of everyone.

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

    Pros

    Easy to move up from associate level, fair work hours

    Cons

    There is absolutely NO specialization as far as associate level jobs, resulting in turmoil, confusion and uneven workload distribution, the anount of favoritism in the workplace is very noticable, the treatment of associates by management is very poor in most cases. Alot of managers tend to undermine their associates in extremely condecending ways leaving base level associates feeling expendable and useless.

    Advice to Management

    More towards human resources, investigate claims, put in audio as well as video survalence to recognize these issues so there truly is two sides to a story
