Benefits

Medical. You can choose the medical benefit coverage according to your specific needs through three medical program options, including a consumer-driven plan. Each medical plan includes prescription drug benefits.

Dental. We offer a competitive dental plan that provides two provider networks, a low deductible, and coverage for most services. The plan pays a percentage for preventative care and major and minor restorative treatment after the deductible is paid

Vision. Our vision service plan has a network of more than 20,000 optometrists and ophthalmologists for you to choose from. This plan provides coverage for eye exams, glasses, contacts, and discounts on services from VSP providers.

Flexible Spending Account - This account allows associates a tax effective way to set aside fixed amounts of pre-tax pay to be used exclusively for health care and/or dependent care expenses. Associates decide how much to deposit on a pre-tax basis into each account. Associates must plan the amount to defer to the accounts carefully because any unused funds are forfeited if not used by the end of the year.

Disability Benefits

The One Benefits Program offers Short-Term Disability and company-paid Long-Term Disability coverage. These coverages offer financial support to you and your family if you're unable to work.

Life and Accident Insurance Benefits

The One Benefits Program offers company-paid life and accident insurance. Associates can also purchase additional insurance for themselves and their family members.

Employee Assistance Program

OfficeMax provides an employee assistance program for associates and their family members for help resolving personal concerns. This confidential service puts associates in contact with experienced counselors ready to help.

The OfficeMax Savings Plan

Retirement savings are an important part of your total compensation package. Our plan will provide a foundation for your retirement savings goals. The plan offers choice, flexibility, and tax-deferred savings, which will help build a strong financial foundation to meet your needs during your retirement years.

Time Off

At OfficeMax, we understand the importance of a work/life balance for our associates. Therefore, we provide them with paid hours called "Your Time Off" (YTO) to use for vacation, personal, and sick days. Accrual of YTO is based on length of service with the company. Associates may carry over some YTO hours into the next calendar year.
