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

Pros

Opportunity to advance quickly if you are a star performer. Most coworkers are motivated and have a team atmosphere. Typically do not hire people right out of college. Many have a good work/life balance and lots of people have kids.

Cons

Merger with Depot just announced so future is uncertain but most likely there will be opportunities. Lack of training when you start depending on what department you are in.

Advice to Management

Keep taking care of your people - they are the most important asset

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

    Pros

    Some flexibility with schedule and ability to manage my team.

    Cons

    Never received annual review or increase upon returning from maternity leave like all other employees did. Boss regularly made me come into office even though it was approved for me to work from home. I had to find child care in a rush which was horrible. I also worked on maternity leave as I was salaried and was not compensated.

    Pros

    Flexible hours, decent pay, a corporate office that tries to be there for associates.

    Cons

    retail, bonuses seem to be paid out slowly, they sometimes don't tell you things till last minute.

    Advice to Management

    better communication at corporate level to make sure things are rolled out properly. More advertisement for ctrl center services. Change goals to a store by store basis.
