Department Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee in Montgomery, AL
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Office Depot (Montgomery, AL) in June 2015.

Interview

You apply online to their website and then submit to a People Answers assessment. If selected you are generally called in for a first interview with the management team. Afterwards, if you pass that particular phase, you will be asked to return for a second interview and possibly a third with the store manager. Considering that the position is managerial in nature, often times a District Manager may also conduct and additional interview. Assuming that you pass those interviews, you will be given a background check and the offer will be contingent upon you passing the background check.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Office Depot (Miami, FL) in August 2011.

    Interview

    Interviewed with two Store Managers, and then I had a third interview with the District Manager. The questions were pretty consistent, no doubt from a script. I attended a mass hire event, so a typical interview would be in a more relaxed setting.

    Department Manager Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Office Depot (Dallas, TX) in July 2013.

    Interview

    First fill out online application, then take the online assessment test. Two interview process, once with assistant manager, next with store manager. You may get interviewed for the store you applied for, or you may get interviewed for another store in the area, their choice. The entire process really depends on the manager you are dealing with. I actually interviewed with a few good managers in my process, they just kept moving me to different locations to get my position. The store I actually worked in, the store manager was not a good interviewer and didn't treat applicants well.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Office Depot (Atlanta, GA) in April 2013.

    Interview

    Store Manager, District Manager, Other Store Manager.
    Excessive due diligence for a 10 / hour job, bordering on ridiculous.
    The interviewers were polite and professional but failed to follow-up when the position was filled internally. Nobody likes to be left hanging.
