    I have been working at OfficeMax

    Pros

    Nice corporation atmosphere, relaxing, and very well structured process.

    Cons

    Too many last minute changes on projects that would deploy the next day or on the current day. The communication and approval for certain projects needs faster response times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the approval process to a minimal amount of people.

    District Manager Impress Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Queens Village, NY (US)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Queens Village, NY (US)
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at OfficeMax.

    Interview Details

    The interview process started out great but when I got to the Regional Manager he was not honest about how hostile the work environment was, nor was the District ever bounding to comps which left a horrible taste in my mouth. Once onboard the training was awful and I had years of training experience and I felt I was set up for failure and not success being their rat to get the retail District Manager fired. That DM made my life unbearable!
