No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Fun atmosphere
Good insurance
Every day is different

Cons

Horrible pay
Managers never close

Advice to Management

Pay people by how much responsibility you give them - if they are opening/closing a $15k/day store, $10.25 isn't an appropriate wage

    Pros

    Coworkers are friendly and fun
    Some customers actually make your day
    Job isn't hard, but it's the management that makes it unbearable

    General Manager does not respect availability times and does not understand employees
    Short-staffed, part-time associates are usually teenagers that quit after a couple months
    Expected to sell products and services without much training
    Awful pay
    Managers spend more time in office than actually helping out their employees
    No breaks except for unpaid lunch break
    Not an ethical company at all

    Advice to Management

    Fix the ads
    Donating "on destroy" stuff
    Promote recycling and follow through with it
    Fixing local management
    Focus on the employees' needs
