Squat normally until your butt feels the box. Then sit without rounding your back, but only long enough to feel like you've placed your weight on the box.

I would start with 40% of your 1RM to get a feel for the lift and add weight each set as you feel comfortable. Initially 80% of my 1RM was tough. Now 90% is easy.
Some make use of the box with one of the corners facing forwards which means it won't interfere with a narrower squat stance.
