Relaxed place
This job was alright. Everything was good, the staff and the workers but I felt like it just wasn't the place or job for me. The most enjoyable part of the job was turning up to work and seeing everyone. Not only that but when others were struggling with their workload we always had someone to come help out.

Family Feel
Love love love. I will never find another culture or work dynamic like it. Wish I could still be doing the job from here. Everybody is friendly. MD knows everybody's name. Team culture is bang on. Team building and training constant. I started as Internal Sales, moved thru to Customer Service, became Customer Service Team Leader and Saleforce Administrator. Growth is a massive focus here. Miss it every day.
Pros
Friendly and fun
Cons
Cant do it from here

Great team culture
A typical day as a Credit Controller involves analysing aged trial balance reports, reducing overdues, phoning clients and developing payment plans. Most days can be very challenging which can test your resilience and your attitude to the role, through hard work and persistence it can also bring along great satisfaction and rewards that you may have thought at the time was unattainable. Work place Culture and values is very important at Office max. Respect and Empathy shown to your fellow colleagues is of utmost importance.

Great people in the office. I very much enjoyed working in two different departments during my temporary assignment. The workload was manageable and my supervisors provided a lot of support. Although I had one issue with a member of another department, this was addressed quickly.
Pros
Suportive work enviroment, friendly coworkers, subsidised lunch in the cafeteria
Cons
Location not so central in Auckland

Excellent company to work for
I worked at Officemax in New Zealand in their national headquarters. The workplace environment was awesome, the people were great, the moral in the workplace was phenomenal, the absolute best company ive worked for in my life. The only reason I left the company, was because I moved from New Zealand, to Texas.
Pros
Everything about this company was awesome... zero complaints.
Cons
None

Transitional employment
Inbound call centre. Management only care about stats.'Team Leaders' are hit and miss - some are great, some are most definitely not. This is best suited for someone wanting to transition from a warehousing job into a customer service position as I did. OfficeMax will give you a rapid introduction but there is no advancement or major salary benefits to remaining there for an extended period of time.
Pros
Occasional work shouts
Cons
Long hours, poor work life balance, lack of team support

good place
I thought turners was a good company to work for; the company respected the fact that I had children and when I needed to leave to sort them out. They showed me how to work the computer system that they do their work on. When they had meetings they included me, even though I was only working for a week, they still treated me like a full time employee. I wasn’t that confident in that area of work, but the supervisor, was patient with me and showed me what to do. The best part about working for turners is the friendly people that work there aswell, thy make you feel welcome and are willing to help you out when you need help. Overall I think turner is a good company to work for.

Definitely a fun workplace and opportunity to learn
Typical day included checking previous days figures - prioritizing work load according to customer requirements - following office protocol. Excellent on-going training provided so learned how to handle all situation within my job. Management was approachable and well organised. Co-workers were supportive and for the most part positive. The hardest part of the job was knowing, regardless of hours put in and excellent work ethics and results, salary increase was slow - it is a corporate business so procedure was "fixed" in this department. Just going to work was enjoyable, a truly good company to work for. Nice environment - the low salary was the only reason I resigned.
Pros
Location, good onsite cafe, good working environment
Cons
Although personal work ethic and achievement appreciated, not rewarded or reflected in salary

Competitive staff
Everyday was like a day you would go out for speed walking, i have learnt picking is not easy its tough, but life is not easy. Co-workers were fine, some were a tad racist because I was the only asian there. Hardest part of the job was to try keep up with the cartons before it blocks off the whole rail, which was impossible. Enjoy part was learning how picking works.
