    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Office Depot (Denver, CO) in April 2016.

    Interview

    At my store, a person can walk in dressed decently, fill out the application on the computers in the store and speak directly with the store manager regarding any open positions. It seems to me that they will hire anybody that passes the background check. There is also no drug test required at store level.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Office Depot (Morrisville, NC) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Pretty basic. It lasted about 30 minutes and it wanted to find out if I was a fit for the position. Needed help in boosting numbers. The store manager or the district manager usually does this type of interview. They will ask what are your strengths and weaknesses. How is your desire to succeed? What does great look like to you?

    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Boca Raton, FL

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Office Depot (Boca Raton, FL) in March 2012.

    Interview

    Short and face to face. If you have ever been through a management interview, you know exactly what to expect. They ask a lot of empty questions, more so to see if you can articulate a response more than what you actual answer is. My best advise is to conceptualize a theme before your interview and to try and redirect any Q&A back to the theme, i.e., team-work is key, individual recognition, short-term goals and employee moral, weak link in chain, etc.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Office Depot (Houston, TX) in April 2011.

    Interview

    I was contacted by senior recruiter via career builder.com. The recruiter was prompt in following up and was even surprised store management was taking too long to contact me for an interview. Once I was contacted I went to a store and the female store manager that interviewed me seemed to talk more about herself. When she'd ask a question and I'd answer she would right away tie it with her own accomplishments and store conflict scenerios, which is fine, but she didn't have to share HR was investigating at her store because employees complained about her. I never received a job offer or has there been follow up. I just feel that it wasn't a quality interview and had I had a professional interviewer as myself since I am in same type of business in retail in HR...I would have been hired by someone that took job more serious and was concious of their own recruiting performance. I was debating in contacting Senior recruiter and make her aware, but it's not worth it.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Office Depot (Torrance, CA) in April 2011.

    Interview

    Very fast process. Interview handled very professionally in a District Office. Two managers; store and District. Nothing tricky or weird. Just trying to get to know who I was, what my experience was and gauge my willingness to fit into their team. Overall, very positive. The District Office was not as fancy as one might think. The Corporate Offices in Boca Raton, Florida were much more impressive. I found all of senior management very involved, very approachable.
