    Pros

    Company has the potential to be a lot of fun and does offer opportunity for those wanting to move up. They take care of the employees who make it to management and are always looking for new products and new ways to improve.

    Cons

    There is no payroll to give. You are overworked and understaffed. They tell you that if you hit sales goals you can get more staff. If you are understaffed however, you will never hit your sales goals. Base pay starts at minimum wage which is pathetic. Most retailers are giving $10 an hour. Office Max caters to professionals, but only has payroll to hi

    Advice to Management

    You will never hit your comp numbers if you keep cutting payroll and saddling your people with too much work. .They will not perform and in many cases cannot perform under the conditions. (Walk a mile in their shoes)
