Terrible Company, Terrible Job, terrible managment, Vallejo store.
Pros: Easy work
Cons: Terrible managment, terrible hours, terrible pay, very unreliable
Management is a joke. Your hours are ridiculously dependent on staying from 1-10pm at night. Also you take the blame if you get hurt, that is right. You get hurt! If management messes up on your attendance or just doesn't like you because of something someone says you basically get in trouble for no reason.
A typical day at work would basically be like this:
Make sure you do everything in the store while the cashier sits at the cashier and the management team (outside of the General manager) basically chill back and you have to great customers, sell products, and then you have to also get your tasks done.
If you don't by the way if you just do your job you get in trouble.
I learned that this is a terrible place to work and that it's not even Office max at all! It's Office depot.
The hardest part was that they hired me for a sales consultant position and expected me to basically: Be on call, (that's right they would call me up and try to get me to come into work), go above and beyond what you were hired for do to terrible management and low staffing, (even though I was hired as a sales consultant, I ended up doing freight, heavy lifting, go backs of items for the store, and also would have to help other workers way too much who had been working there far longer then me) finally the real hard part was trying to get a crucial day off just to basically go attend official business with the government or because you were sick. (you basically could lose your job even if it's a legit reason that you could not come in)
Finally , I was promised to start at 10.50 – more... an hour, but started at 10 an hour. The General manger constantly lied to everyone in the store. I was trying to work into a different position for advancement but he basically just lied about everything and terminated me because I quote; "I hear everything that everyone says in the store and it goes right back to me."
This company and job is a joke. Don't waste your time trying to work here. – less
