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

    Pros

    Fun to work in printing and learn the Adobe Suite. It is also fun to learn about how retail stores work so that you can be a better shopper at other stores.

    Cons

    Everything from the corporate side of the company seems to be slow and dumb. They set crazy high goals and try to get you to meet them

    Advice to Management

    Get faster internet. It is embarrassing to "show off" a new computer and have it be crazy slow just loading a webpage. Also might want to get wifi that works if you are going to install and pay for it each month.
