    Senior Financial Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Staples in December 2011.

    Interview Details

    The initial screening was a phone interview where the interviewer generally asked about my background, skills and why I wanted to join Staples.

    Once I cleared the phone interview, I was notified by email about two dates when the interview sessions were being conducted. I selected one of the dates and went there around 10:30 AM. I was told that the interview process would be lengthy. But to call it lengthy would be an understatement. The actual process lasted about 5 hours and included about 6 interviews with different people/panels in a claustrophobic room. This was one of the most exhausting interviews of my life.

    After a week I was notified that I was not selected. This was really really disappointing, considering the amount of hardwork and effort I had put into this interview. Straight from following up with the HR Recruiter to sending Thank You emails to all Hiring Managers.

    The process took a day - interviewed at Staples in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was very interesting at Staples. I was greeted by one individual who was very nice and personable and was looking to mainly understand my long-term goals so they could be sure to hire someone that would stay with them for a long period of time. My next interview was somewhat colder-feeling, and the interviewer was "politely rude", meaning it was almost a stress-test type of interview to see how you handle it, and although it went OK, it wasn't an environment I wanted to be a part of.
