    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Office Depot (Boca Raton, FL) in March 2012.

    Interview

    Short and face to face. If you have ever been through a management interview, you know exactly what to expect. They ask a lot of empty questions, more so to see if you can articulate a response more than what you actual answer is. My best advise is to conceptualize a theme before your interview and to try and redirect any Q&A back to the theme, i.e., team-work is key, individual recognition, short-term goals and employee moral, weak link in chain, etc.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Office Depot (Houston, TX) in April 2011.

    Interview

    I was contacted by senior recruiter via career builder.com. The recruiter was prompt in following up and was even surprised store management was taking too long to contact me for an interview. Once I was contacted I went to a store and the female store manager that interviewed me seemed to talk more about herself. When she'd ask a question and I'd answer she would right away tie it with her own accomplishments and store conflict scenerios, which is fine, but she didn't have to share HR was investigating at her store because employees complained about her. I never received a job offer or has there been follow up. I just feel that it wasn't a quality interview and had I had a professional interviewer as myself since I am in same type of business in retail in HR...I would have been hired by someone that took job more serious and was concious of their own recruiting performance. I was debating in contacting Senior recruiter and make her aware, but it's not worth it.
