    Sales Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Dayton, OH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dayton, OH
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a day - interviewed at Office Depot in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    The process was quick and easy; interview questions were very run of the mill and did not cause too much difficulty. If you have interviewed for any other entry level customer service position, especially in a retail setting, you can glide through this. Typical questions include best and worst experiences as a customer, worst work situation you've dealt with, etc.

    Interview Questions
    • What is the greatest obstacle you've faced while working in customer service.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation. I was essentially offered the job on the spot and the salary was already set with no room to ask up.

    Sales Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Pineville, NC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pineville, NC
    Application Details

    I applied in-person - interviewed at Office Depot in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process took a little over two week. The first experience I had was with a department manager who was assured through my computer background I'd get hired. I took the online assessment and was told to come back in 3-4 days. I did so and when I came in I was told the store manager was busy and couldn't talk to me today, again I was told to come back the following week. Finally, during the third meeting I was interviewed and initially hired on part-time after waiting a week.

    Interview Details

    was not expecting to get hired but now i am in I am actually sad. Paid is so important to me because that is what us workers need. The interview is easy to get in but don't let them fool you. They will not agree to what they said and paid you as less as possible. It is just barely to minimum
