Sales Associate
in Austin, TX

"I have worked in both the print and sales departments of OfficeMax. The only real part I enjoy about the company is my co-workers. I have been fortunate to meet good people. As far as the company, the ad signs most of the time don't match the prices, so we have to override a lot. The second thing that bothers me the most is customers get too much slack. They complain, they get what they want... that is so ANNOYING!"

Operations Supervisor
in Lansing, MI

What do you like about working at OfficeMax?

"I loved working with customers. After being there for 5 years, there were quite a few customers with whom I had created a great relationship with."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Don't bother!!! If you do plan on it anyway, be prepared to work FOR someone, not with them. They don't respect associates, or managers (below the store manager) in any way, shape or form."

What don't you like about working at OfficeMax?

"My immediate supervisors micro-managed every thing that I did, and didn't allow me any creative license when it came to doing my job. They didn't care whatsoever about the way that I felt about my job and expected me to be able handling doing 10000 things at once, putting little focus on customer service, which in my mind, was the whole reason that I was there."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"I would actually care about my employees. I would listen to what they had to say and not micro-manage the crap out of them. I would treat them like human beings who were there to work just like I was, and not like minions that I had there to do my will."
