"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!"
