OfficeMax Employee
in New York, NY

"Officemax total solutions is a total joke."

What do you like about working at OfficeMax?

"Not much. They should stick to focusing on selling commodities (office products) and stop kidding themselves that they are a viable solution provider. The only solution they are providing right now is confusion to their customers."

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

"Don't do it."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Stop 'partnering' and develop your own solutions. Most of the companies that they 'partner' with are direct competitors, thus makes it frustrating for their salespeople. In addition, streamline the report to process; when you have commodity driven salespeople and those you are tasking to sell solutions they need to report into the same organization. Conversely, if total solutions are what you are focusing on, then you should recognize those sales people who have a background in that type of offering and allow them to lead and do their job."
