    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Office Depot.

    Interview Details

    Fairly simple with the Sales Manager of the region. I received my first call from the recruiter. She had found my resume online on Monster. She phoned and we spoke at length. Then she setup and interview with the local manager. This took only a week or so. The interview was simple and lasted about 30 minutes. I received an offer letter about 1 week following the interview.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Office Depot in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    Tried to apply online but a very terrible job search website. Had a friend who worked at the store talk to the manager who gave me the exact job number to apply for.

    Very average interview. Was being interviewed by manager in training and the store manager briefly stepped in to say hello. Extremely generic questions, interviewer got tired of the questions (obviously provided by corporate) and we just talked about general stuff regarding sales.

    Retail Sales Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Office Depot.

    Interview Details

    Started by submitting application, I didn't hear anything back after 5 days and happened to stop by their location on a whim, I figured I was in the neighborhood and it'd have been a great opportunity to display my initiative for the job. I spoke with a store manager and he scheduled an interview for the next day. During the initial interview I was impressed by how well it went, I was asked hypotheticals and a lot about my background. It went awesome. He did me a huge favor by helping me get in touch with a store closer to home. An hour later I received a telephone call from said location and they wanted to set up another interview the next day. It was considered my second interview and it went exceptionally well. More questions about work history, asked to give examples of how I've demonstrated so and so, more hypotheticals. It all went smoothly and was offered the job on the spot. I enjoyed the interview process. Office Depot knows what they're doing.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Office Depot in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Assistant interviewed me and told me I was recommended for second interview. Never received the second interview at all. The manager just changed her mind. Misleading me and I was very qualified for the position. Also they seemed eager to have you there but that was not true either, because they never gave me a chance at what I know I could do.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Office Depot in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and almost immediately was called in for an interview the following day. The hiring manager told me that he had scheduled me in for the afternoon at three, without any notice. I made it to the site 10 minutes early and had to wait 30 mins for the hiring manager to see me. While I was waiting the people there were friendly, albeit unenthusiastic. It appears as the people who work there don't enjoy it as much. We went into his office and he asked me three simple questions. I asked him several. Anyways I left him my resume and that was that. I didn't hear from them again but that's fine they were only offering 10.00 an hour and I just got hired at a base of 13.00 an hour plus salary.

    I applied through a staffing agency – interviewed at Office Depot in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process is fast. However, it is the on boarding process that takes a little long and some times can be frustrating. But it is fun place to work so in my case, I didn't feel it. The managers and the directors are so nice that they facilitated the process to make it even shorter.
