I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Office Depot in August 2011.
Interview Details – The interview process was simple and efficient. I was called after applying and taking a short pre-employment survey had a meeting scheduled for the following Monday for an interview. The interview didn't take place in a back office or a hidden room; it took place on the furniture pad of the store, where I could see the customer interactions and see what a working day was like for an employee here. After the first interview, I was asked to come back in two days for a second interview with the store manager. WHile the first interview was much more laid back and had more to do with personal questioning of my views on this or that in the workplace, the second interview was very much about business. Questions about my skills, my experiences, and even some scenarios thrown at me to solve.AT the end of the day, I walked out of the building with a job offer and a sense that I already had a connection with a store that hadn't even hired me yet.
Interview Question – In the first interview, I was asked about how I would handle an angry customer who was rightfully angry at a situation I had not caused, but was the only associate available who could rectify it. (Little did I know that this is a very real possibility, especially if working in the Copy Center.) View Answer
