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

    Pros

    Friendly staff, Interesting customers, Flexible hours, Competent management, and moderate expectations. There is a lot of room for advancement if you stay busy and do your job. Self motivation is the key to success at OfficeMax.

    Cons

    Can sometimes be repetitious. If you can't talk to people or know what rapport means then you shouldn't work here. You will have weeks where sales are phenomenal and others where you're barely braking even. Keep your head up and focus on your goals.

    Advice to Management

    Innovation is the lifeblood of any company but please pace yourself. Can sometimes be overwhelming.

    I worked at OfficeMax part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    My co-workers were great to work with and were always willing to help out the customers when needed. It was a fun environment though sometimes it could get hectic in the Impress Dept. They provided whatever hours that were requested by the employees and very flexible with scheduling.

    Cons

    - Pay scale was low
    - Tough customers to please at times
    - Management only cared about sales and not customer service
    - Push ridiculous methods of improving sales numbers
    - VERY high turn-over rate

    Advice to Management

    On the right track.. increase the pay scale a bit to be more competitive with the job market in order to keep your employees interested!
