    A bit rushed, as I was transferring from the store I was initially hired on at and worked for for 4 and a half years to another store that was offering more hours with an opportunity for a management position.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Office Depot.

    Interview

    Online application (1 hour), 130 question quiz in the store, 35 minute first interview, 1 1/2 hour second interview. It was a little lengthy for a part-time store position. I'm unsure why the application process is so drawn out. Happy I got the job but, hmm.

    Interview

    Never had an HR interview. Met with the hiring manager, a peer, and two levels of managers above the hiring manager. All were very respectful. All 4 of them are gone now though.

    • Nothing was unexpected. One of the senior managers asked many technical questions about my background but nothing unfair.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Office Depot (Barboursville, WV).

    Interview

    Very Down to Earth interview! The associates were extremely helpful and super friendly. Manager really tried to fit me into their work environment regardless of the work position I applied for. They were also very informative about the position as well. They also made sure to answer any concerns that you may have as clearly as possible. Not a bad company. Highly recommend for college students that do not have wild school schedules unlike myself.

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Office Depot.

    Interview

    Interview process was OK. Looking for a HUNTER. Must be able to close new sales quickly. Don't expect much training. You'll have to learn on the fly. Company uses a lot of internal acronyms, even when speaking to customers.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Office Depot (Charlotte, NC) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Initially, the interview was done after speaking to the Store Manager and it followed up with one interview where I was probed about a criminal record. Considering I've worked for the company before I don't believe that was a unnecessary conversation. All it took was a question and some initial investigation. Likewise, I didn't have anything to hide. After the interview I waited a week until I heard anything about the initial job, but given the week passed and I was hired the interview proved my word was my bond and I was hired.
