Great enviroment and Great People
Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee), Hickory, NCDecember 13, 2014
Pros: great enviroment
Cons: would operate with a single manager on sundays, so the mod could not take any breaks.
Helping customers, handling freight, developing associates, cash and asset management. Always something to do or someone to help, which is what I love! One of the downsides to the job was time management as far as scheduling. The store manager insisted on doing all the scheduling, all though I was suppose to handle it, she never took the time to train – more... me in scheduling. There was a lot of "fixed schedules" when there needed to be more variance in the time certain associates worked. She as well as several associated had been there in excess of 10 years and worked the same schedule every week, whether the stores sales forecast was calling for certain coverage or not. This caused a lot of resentment between associates and management. – less

Weak work structure
Cashier (Former Employee), Springfield, OHDecember 3, 2014
Every day, there was something new. The only things that were actually consistent included building planograms and running the cash register. Other than that, I had many other tasks to do when they weren't even mine to obtain - it was the manager's job. I also asked for more hours and they said I wouldn't get anymore than 30 hours a week, because only – more... MANAGERS could get 40 + hours. Which I didn't find to be fair at all, due to the fact that more than a few people were leaving due to college/high school. – less

Overall, a good retail working environment with limited opportunity for advancement .
Sales Associate/Customer Service (Former Employee), Dunwoody, GADecember 2, 2014
Pros: full benefits package for full-time employees
Cons: limeited opportunity for advancement
I was with Office Max for nearly 18 years and held numerous store management positions. I experienced the results of many changes in management styles and corporate ownership during my time with the company. The most recent merger with Office Depot was a good fit and will help ensure the continued existence of this big box store.

Good place to start gaining experience and advancing in retail or customer service. There is a strong focus on getting what the customer needs the first time so that there are minimal returns while upselling the print department and other services.
