Pros

Lower Management was fair and encouraging

Lowest pay for amount of work at retail especially with the amount of expertise expected.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reward your employees for being knowledgeable and not just for selling your warranty schemes.

    I have been working at OfficeMax full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You always know how bad you are and that no matter what it is your fault.

    Cons

    Focus on goals set by someone in corporate who is trying to justify their job, resulting in many small focuses that do not really contribute to the profitability of the store. There is a insane focus on "protection" and service plans that has resulted in many good workers quitting and being let go simply for not excelling in this not-so-profitable focus. The company as a whole needs to focus on driving profit per store instead of focusing on many inconsequential goals that are usually not achievable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out what you want to focus on and drive profit per store. Stop with the insane micro-focus culture and respect your managers' abilities to do their own jobs.
