I have been working at OfficeMax full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Nice time off amount given to employees

Cons

If you cant sell, the company does not appreciate you.
Make employees to push items that the customers don't necessarily need or want.
Pay is not much about minimum wage, but expect a lot of their employees.
Raises not frequent or meeting cost of living.

Advice to Management

Take care of your employees and celebrate wins instead of just focusing on meeting every matrix. Let employees take care of customers instead of making us focus on selling things to customers that they either do not need or are a good deal for our customers. Basically let us treat our customers treat customers like we would like to be treated.
