Easy Interview

Application

I applied online – interviewed at OfficeMax.

Interview

Applied online and received a call with some simple screening questions of retail experience. I came in for an interview and it was pretty standard. "Tell us of a time you've had a difficult customer," "tell us of a time you've need to meet a goal," that sort of thing.
Went back for a second interview with the assistant manager and had similar questions, was also asked about my experience with planograms, my warehouse experience, etc.

Interview Questions

  • The most difficult at the time was actually going onto the sales floor and being asked "sell me this printer."   1 Answer

Negotiation

I was relocating to a more expensive area and was quite disappointed in my offer, and they refused to go any higher based on my previous pay

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at OfficeMax in October 2013.

    Interview

    I was called by the SM to setup an 1st interview. I felt the interview was well conducted. Questions asked were very basic.

    A week later I received another call to interview with a second person, that interview was later canceled because the person that was suppose to do the interview wasn't able to conduct the interview. I was told that the ASM would conduct the interview instead. The interview with the ASM went well. The questions asked were very basic. The ASM did tell me that someone already employed at the store was applying for the same position.

    A few days later I received a call asking me if I could come in and do the drug test that was required. After the test came back with a good result I was offered the job.

    Interview Questions

    • The SM asked me a weirdly worded questions regarding ethics.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I wasn't able to negotiate, and was told that the offer was the highest that could be offered for that position even with my years of retail management experience.

    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at OfficeMax in May 2012.

    Interview

    I started as a Sales Specialist which the hiring process was you have to go onto website and apply there taking and taking assessment test. After you pass that step you have to do a 1 on 1 interview and if they like what they see you will get an offer letter. For Operations Supervisor had to interview with District Manager and a Manager then if you are selected you get another offer letter.

    Interview Questions

    • Really there weren't any difficult or unexpected questions.   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at OfficeMax (Naperville, IL) in March 2010.

    Interview

    The first interview was over the phone. The second interivew was with the people I would be working with-in person. That went well. However, when I met with the actual hiring managers, I didn't get the impression they were very excited about hiring someone from the outside. I would advise someone interviewing with the company to get a clear understanding as to why they are looking for someone outside of the company instead of hiring from within.
