Working at OfficeMax:

A complete disappointing and unrewarding experience. You are expected to do everything under the sun and keep sales up by selling Maxassurance plans.

WORK ENVIRONMENT

casual, disorganized, unprofessional

Working at OfficeMax:

A job that could easily be related to “The Boys Club” at your local rec center...in other words, this job was a joke. Part of the new “tech 2.0” (the shift to new electronics...ipads, tablets, phones, ect) was a desperate attempt to compete with other stores that actually sell electronics...I’m sorry guys, but OfficeMax sells office supplies, not blackberry tablets...I’ll just go to Best Buy for that one.

Officemax Salary and Benefits:

The ONLY pro, is that OfficeMax pays slightly over minimum wage. In New York, minimum is currently $7.25, however OMax starts you out at $7.75. Another small perk is the ability to make commission on extended warranties. Sadly though, you need to stretch the truth in order to sell one of these...because nobody wants to pay extra on a printer that’s going to break in 3 years anyways...but if you lie and make it seem worth it, they will throw an extra dollar your way. Hooray for dishonesty???

WORK ENVIRONMENT

disorganized

Working at OfficeMax:

I'm treated fine at office max that's not really the trouble. The problem is that their are far to few associates in the store to do what is expected. Everyone is loaded up with work while expected to deliver high sales and customer service.

Officemax Salary and Benefits:

10.20 an hour after two years of full time work.

WORK ENVIRONMENT

fast-paced, high-pressure

Working at OfficeMax:

One of the big problems with office max is that they don't staff enough people. There usually isn't more than 4 associates in the store at any given time and everyone is busy running the store which leaves no time for customer service/sales.

Because the stores are so understaffed, you work extremely hared at every moment. I'm talking working freight, stocking, tons of tag printing, cleaning, the list goes on and on. You do everything here unlike other retailers and on top of that you have tons of pressure to SELL!

Officemax Salary and Benefits:

$8.00 an hour and no benefits. We get a measly 10% discount.

Okay place to work. Casual dress. Not much diversity in management. If you can drink the kool-aid you'll be fine.
