    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at OfficeMax in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I met with the lead sales associate for the interview. Most of the questions were similar to the questions I got from a college career advisor. The interviewer was very nice, and he mentioned that my interview seemed a lot better compared to the other interviewee candidates. The lead associate called me later that day to schedule an appointment with his boss, but his boss was only available on the day that I was busy. The lead associate never called me back after that day.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at OfficeMax.

    Interview Details

    Can be slow going, requires sales and technology background or aptitude. If you can sell and it's not reflected in your resume, then put it in a cover letter so you don't get passed up. You only get one interview, so make it good. Show up dressed well and don't be late.

    Sales Associate - Office Max Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at OfficeMax.

    Interview Details

    My Interview was a bit odd the person interviewing me seemed nerves, her face was red and the questions were not questions I had prepared myself for from reading other questions fro other sites.It didn't seem like they cared about my answers as much as just getting someone in to fill the position. If you are a brown nosier this particular store will work for you. The staff and management were lazy and spent most of the day talking about customers and new employees. They never had more than one cashier on staff, which didn't make sense because the mangers or key holders were not expected to jump on and help you.
