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

Pros

Overall its a pretty good job. Its a job and not a career though.

Cons

I think they should pay the associates more. We do a lot more than walmart associates as far as customer service wise, and to pay just barely over minimum wage is crazy. Sales specialist are pushed very hard to meet numbers and our metrics. ......

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

    Pros

    Flexible hours, Sometimes got to pop bubble wrap

    Cons

    Constantly understaffed, Paid very low even when responsibility increased, Time-wasting activities as mandated by corporate, Management and Upper Management did not stand behind their employees (even when customers were abusive or rude), Company policies were thrown aside when a customer complained, Unconcerned management, Religious discrimination, No room for advancement or motivators to do so

    Advice to Management

    Stop wasting people's time with things like LP Edge or Huddles. Don't come down so hard on management for customer complaints--sometimes customers are wrong, or abusive towards employees. When a regular employee enforces a company policy, all the customer has to do is whine to a manager, and they bend over backwards and do whatever the customer wants--anything to avoid a complaint, even if it's upholding the company's own polices. Good luck on your merger with Office Depot.
