If you want office supplies, you most likely gone to OffiiceMax or Staples. These two companies are that grandaddy’s of the office oriented retail stores. In 1988 Michael Feuer, along with seven other associates, opened the first OfficeMax store. Their idea was to give customers another choice in their office supply store, since Office Depot had opened two years earlier.
OfficeMax was acquired by Office World in 1990 with part of its shares being bought by Montgomery Ward. The company went onto acquire BizMart, Office Warehouse, and Intelligent Electronics. The company continued to grow opening stores rapidly during the 1990s.
Today the stores employ over 32,000 people. They have almost 1,000 stores nationwide. No matter what position you work at with Office Max they depend on people who are of strong character and have a good work ethic. They do like to promote from within so you can grow professionally if you so desire.
Like Staples, the biggest area that they need people is their retail stores. With so many stores nationwide, they need people that can help their customers. Their customer service representatives are there to help the customers find what they are looking for. They will need to be able to answer questions, assist customers and even run the register.
Other duties may include stocking shelves and helping maintain the stores cleanly appearance. Because of a recent restructuring of management, there are very few supervisor or management positions but as a store manager it is your responsibility to staff and maintain your store.
