What our team says

'I love working here at OfficeMax because of the personality of this organisation. The people that I get to meet and collaborate with everyday, are so diverse and engaging. Two years ago, I decided
that I needed to leave my job of almost 7 years and became a Telephone Account Manager here at OfficeMax. Since then, I have gained valuable skills and knowledge. I have recently been successful in securing an on the road Account Manager
position at OfficeMax. Best decision I made!'
