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

I was working in a small town so the room to advance wasn't there.

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

    Pros

    Some truly interesting and fun people work for this company. The people apart from their roles in the store are great. The supplies sold are almost all decent quality and it's nice to be able to say that you have all of the accessories for the items you sell.

    Cons

    The management will overwork you to the point of severe stress and claim that they do so for your benefit. I am a part-time associate working almost 40 hours a week without benefits or paid leave.
    The company's methods and policies make no sense to anyone who has worked previously in the retail industry.
    The senior staff in most locations will excessively focus on problems without offering any solutions.
    For a group of people who constantly wear radio headsets, nobody wants to get any actual information across.
    The sales and specials rarely are handled properly and thus require substituting items and repricing the item in its individual form at the register.
    The limits of coupons and special ad prices is not applied by the computer, and the associate is forced to tell the customer that they cannot make the purchase that they want to.
    Associates are singled out and hounded for not selling products which have little or no appeal to the customer, such as MaxAssurance, copy paper, MaxPerks memberships and the dreaded Essentials Kit.

    Advice to Management

    Your employees are a resource for more than sweat. Their experiences and skills are an advantage to be harnessed rather than a habit to be broken.
