    I worked at Officeworks full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I worked at Officeworks for six years across a number of stores in different states. The culture there was great, and I enjoyed coming to work. I felt like if I had wanted to stay there would have been a career for me moving up through management.

    Cons

    As an established retailer, there is a resistance to change, especially amongst tenured employees, which can lead to negativity and friction between head office and stores.
