    Pros

    Co-workers make it an amazing place to work

    Cons

    I feel like sometime there is no direction, and we are always recreating the wheel when developing a new process. We don't try to fix the current process.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at OfficeMax.

    Interview

    Interviewed by shift Supervisor first as a one-on-one interview, then came back the following day for a second interview with the Store Manager and Supervisor together, with the Store Manager asking most of the questions. The interview with the Supervisor was more in depth and took longer. Both interviews were average and I wasn't made to feel nervous or intimidated. They want to make sure you have retail experience working with customers and are comfortable in a fast paced work environment with many customers.
