Pros

Officemax wants people who want to work. Come in do what's neccesary work hard. You'll be noticedand things run smoothly when we all know our roles.

Cons

Besides the rediculously low payrate, which the state considers to be beneath the poverty level, the biggest problem is the nonexistence of communication. The left hand never knows what the right is doing. Plano revision changes two weeks in a row. Decisions to impliment new signage are made but the new format starts printing out at store level two weeks early with no direction. New standards come down at least once a month when someone at a desk, not in a store, changes thier mind again.

Advice to Management

Pay your people a real living wage so they truly feel like your people in word and deed. Hold corporate departments as accountable as you do the lowliest cashier on the sales flor.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure your team gets the proper training. The company makes so many great tools to help the team out. If people don't want to work in a certain part of the store it's because they don't understand it. Cross training is key to help the customer and keep the team from being bored.
