    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Staples (Denton, TX) in September 2011.

    Interview

    I saw the posting online so I applied online but also brought in my resume and asked to talk to the general manager. That makes more of an impression than just walking into the store in normal clothes and asking if we're hiring. Be more professional and wear business casual attire. Once I talked to the GM he set me up with an interview with the assistant manager and once I passed that, I had another interview with the GM himself and the Customer Service Lead. My initial impression was that the job would consist of me working on computers and once a week unload the truck and stock merchandise. That basically turned in to 80% sales and maybe 20% actual computer work. If the Staples you're applying at has an Easy Tech bench behind the customer service counter, that's how it will be. There's not enough space nor demand for tech services. The experience would be much better at a larger store.

    Negotiation

    Staples can be stingy with pay and may not budge much on the offer. Don't request much more than offered because you probably won't get it.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Staples (Webster, TX) in August 2011.

    Interview

    Filled out online app, called to see if they were hiring (they were), then went to Staples and introduced myself and the Manager scheduled an interview with me. Interviewed with assistant manager then GM on same day. Went great, typical interview questions read from list (just google interview questions and you should be good). Everyone was super nice. Had to wait a couple of weeks for background check to clear, but called about twice a week to check up. Was eventually offered an easy tech position. Interviewing for customer service lead next week.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Staples (Chicopee, MA) in February 2011.

    Interview

    Phone interview was relatively quick, was given basic questions regarding things like sales tactics and other details, not very difficult. Interview started well, it was my first traditional job interview and the managers seemed to have a good idea as to what they were doing, although a little awkward (I suppose this was my own fault). I got a call a few days later for a second interview. Came in a day early, weather was not permitting driving or anything of that sort, so I had to interview a day early. Second interview went very well, I was called soon after and offered to take the job.

    Interview Questions

    • What was something you did in the past that over exceeded what was expected?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I didn't negotiate anything, I am eager to work, needed the job badly and honestly couldn't ask for anything better right now. Also, I went online and prepared before my interview, most guides said not to mention money or anything of the sort during the interview, so when the GM asked me if I had any questions regarding pay, vacation time, etc. I flat out said no.

    Interveiw in my store was easy. They are so desperate for people to work I was able to get right in.

    Negotiation

    Can't negotiate. You get stuck at the minimum to start because staples doesnt allow the managers to negotiate.
