    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation, manager kind of told me how much I was going too be paid and when I was going to start. I have heard other associates were able to negotiate up to $1.00 more than they would have gotten. But I did not.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Office Depot in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    I went into the store first to introduce myself and get a feel for the people and location. Talked to a manger and really hit it off with her(unfortunately, no one tells you that the management changes every couple of months). Noted the all female management; thought that was awesome.

    Sent in my application and a week later, maybe less got a phone call.
    We set up an interview date and I went in, interviewed, and we set up another date immediately for the skills and personality test.
    It was about 100 or so questions about situations and your role in a retail setting. You have to get a specific score and I got another phone call shortly thereafter.

    Got trained for my cashier position in a couple of days and then was put out on the floor.

    Be prepared to pick up other people's slack.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Office Depot in June 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was not given an interview. The hiring process involved a drug test and one of those personality tests. The drug test was fine, since I understand the reasoning for that, but apparently I 'failed' the personality test. The store manager didn't care and had someone else take it for me.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Office Depot in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    The whole process took about 3 hours. I filled out an application in store, then did an online test of 182 questions all pretty straight forward. E.g. Have you ever stolen from an employer? Do you feel dishonesty is a good thing to do to make a sale ?

    During the one to one interview it was simple. Have you ever worked retail and asked for examples of when you had a great boss and when you had a bad boss and how you dealt with it. Also asked how long I would commit to office depot.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
