I worked at OfficeMax part-time (More than a year)

Pros

A lot of hours, slow during most of the day.

Cons

Pay: After working very hard for a year I got a 22 cent raise. And they didn't adjust that for minimum wage increase, so I was making 4 cents over minimum and started 25 cents over minimum.
Sales: They push you to sell more and more, and the compensation that you receive for selling is minuscule at best.
Management: They were alright. It's a stressful job for them so they can get a little grouchy.
Shift length: You get 30 minute breaks, and there's a break room. Depending on your schedule they might work you at 5 am in the morning. I usually got 8 or 10 hour shifts.

Advice to Management

Give us more incentive to sell!

    I have been working at OfficeMax full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fun people, good hours (if you actually do your job), relatively easy to do most days.

    Cons

    Virtually no real training, hardly anyone is paid what they're actually worth, don't seem to have an real direction with the company.

    Advice to Management

    Actually train your staff properly! Don't hand them something and throw them to the wolves then wonder why they're doing such a bad job!!
