EasyTech Associate Interview

EasyTech Associate
Southbury, CT

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Staples in August 2014.

Interview Details – Walked into the Interview with almost no expectations of how it would go, seeing as I had just interviewed for the same position at another store near my hometown only a few days earlier and the interviewer there didn't seem to have much experience with interviewing people, so she just told me what was expected of an employee and asked if I was ok with it, but this interview went quite differently. I arrived about 15 minutes early and waited in the front of the store until my interview time and asked a sales associate to be directed to the Assistant Manager (They seem to do the interviewing as far as I can tell) and was taken into his office within a few minutes. The interview was pretty much non-existent and we just talked about Video Games and Batman and he reviewed my resume and pretty much told me that I was good to go and that he would call me later to let me know when to come in to fill out my paperwork and get started.

Interview Question – Tell me about yourself.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – No negotiation.

EasyTech Associate
Rutland, VT

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Staples in March 2014.

Interview Details – I applied online and received a call a week later about setting up an interview. I had previously worked at this location in high school and the same managers I worked under previously conducted the interview. Basically went over what I had been doing since last working there, and why I wanted to return. I applied for a sales position, but we discussed promotion to an on-site technician once I get through all the training. Left the interview and waited for my background check to clear. A wee later I received a call from the hiring manager an was offered the position.

Interview Question – No difficult or unexpected questions.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Asked for $9/hr at interview. Was offered $10.20 because of my previous experience and to keep me around until I can be promoted to technician.

EasyTech Associate Interview

EasyTech Associate
Pueblo, CO

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Staples in July 2013.

Interview Details – I applied for EasyTech resident position, but instead ended up as EasyTech associate, which is really a glorified sales associate. I didn't even get an EasyTech badge. The interview was very brief and I didn't feel like they were really concerned about me as a person, just for the business I could bring to the store. The hiring manager was very curt and never cared much for me.

Interview Question – "Why did you leave your last job?"   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I wasn't able to negotiate my wage or hours. but my associates were able to negotiate wages.
