    I have been working at OfficeMax part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    constant customer service, you get a foreground of sales and what it initials. Stepping stone for other jobs. Hours were good, just know that it is part time so your not going to get major hours. BUT the hours i got were about 50 hours every check. So job wise it was stable. I didn't slack off. When you slack, you aren't seen as a priority. You want them to notice when your working or not. What i mean is that you want to be known as "one of the good ones" that they always want working because your so good at your job

    Cons

    Management wasn't stable, always changed managers. Within almost the first year, i am at my third manager. Good guy, very friendly. Works with you if your in school.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be confident in sales, push yourself , be self motivated and don't doubt yourself. Sales is just the way you word things. Just keep having perseverance, its a learning process! Always have to start somewhere!

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at OfficeMax in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    Went through 2 interviews. One with a local Store Manager and the second with the DM. Situational questions were asked about selling processes. The DM was interested more in my background and how it would be a fit for Office Max.
