    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at OfficeMax (Atlanta, GA) in November 2013.

    Interview

    Very short and straight to the point. I don't like interview that takes about too long. Most companies you have to do background checked and drug test. They usually give you back a called or email to let you know if you got the job or not.

    I spoke with the manager. The whole interview lasted about a half an hour. She asked pretty basic questions. I was nervous at first, as this would be my first job, but it was very casual. After all the questions she offered me a job right away and gave me some paperwork to fill out.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at OfficeMax (Atlanta, GA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    The Customer Sales Manager called me in two days after I applied online. Very informal, due to the fact that most prospects are under 20. Personally, I wore a suit, but most applicants could get away with khakis and a dress shirt. We had a 30 Minute conversation about the position and my qualifications pertaining to that position. He then gave me a formal offer at the end.

    Interview Questions

    • If a customer comes in to the store wanting to return a product they had bought thirty-one days prior, and our company policy on returns is thirty days, how would you handle that situation?   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at OfficeMax (Marietta, GA).

    Interview

    Basic interview. I talked to the store manager and department manager on the same day, so don't expect multiple interviews. The process was not intimidating and if you land an interview while the store is actively hiring then you are pretty much guaranteed a job.
