    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Staples & Associates in January 2013.

    Interview

    Was called two days after applying online for interview. It was held in th furniture section of the store. Which was noisy and customers kept interrupting. Meet with assistant manager who asked about experience and what I hope to get from Staples. Had second interview immediately with general manager. She wanted older experienced cashiers who would treat the store as their own. Wanted someone who knew how to talk to customers and not shy away like the younger, first job ever, kids. Said they would call me by Friday. Three weeks later received a job offer. When I showed up for training there was five people. Three were first time workers.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Staples & Associates (Dallas, TX) in August 2011.

    Interview

    Referred to Staples by a friend and completed a phone interview with the hiring manager and his boss. From there I was invited to a face-to-face interview with the hiring manager's boss and within a few days an offer was extended. Very basic and simple interview questions were used to gauge business accumen and personality type as related to the preferred sales associate profile.

    • Questions about personal life and family, such as number of children, married or single, etc...   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There was some small wiggle room in base salary and commission guarantees, but not without significant pressure being applied by the person being hired.
