Office Max Informative - READ before you SHOP at OfficeMax
I have first hand knowledge of the sales tactics. I spent 2 months there and have several friends who work there now. You are trained to sell, no matter what. The manager repeats over and over "expectations" and gives daily quota's to hit.
Maxassurance is the number one priority. You have to hit 3% of your sales. Every computer, printer, shredder, and camera. They even sell them on backpacks. The Maxassurance program is owned by OFFICEMAX. They look for loopholes to NOT cover things. Think about it, they sell it and don't want you to use it. IT's not worth it! Even associates have been denied coverage.
It is so High pressure that you feel guilty selling stuff to people who really can't afford the insurance.
The furniture Insurance is the worst, it covers nothing really. The chair insurance is a joke. It only covers wheels. The mechanism is not covered, which is what usually breaks first.
MAXPERKS- It really isn't what it seems. If you recycle you have to make qualifying purchases to reap your rewards. So read the fine print.
SALES- by they way, as it has been mentioned early, the associates are required to greet you very fast, and take you to the item and place it in your hand. Then they are expected to talk to you, get your name, find out what you are working on, and offer all the items you may need. At times it is very intrusive. It makes it so you can't just shop.
There are other choices, pick a better one....
