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

Pros

Strong senior leadership that is constantly looking to improve processes and new opportunities to innovate.

Cons

Compensation is less than average for part timers and hourly supervisors. VERY limited opportunities to move up in the company on the retail side of things. Easier to be hired in from an external company than get promoted.

Advice to Management

Develop your leaders in the stores and foster a positive environment.

    I worked at OfficeMax part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The coworkers can be good people, and there are times the job can just be fun.

    Cons

    The pay is horrific, the hours are crappy, management is pushy, and if a member of the management just does not like you, get ready to be fired. Oh. And the shipping company likes to rig the trucks, so get ready to have a pallet of crazy heavy crap fall on you.

    Advice to Management

    I can not even list it all. You know what you need to do, so man up and do it.

    Management is challenging and gives no supportive.

    Advice to Management

    Breath in, breath out, now go and show us a bit more respect.
