    Sales Associate Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Office Depot.

    Interview

    Very easy. I think I got asked 3 questions and they were simple "Did you, or didn't you do" or "How would you handle thing" type questions. If you pass, they make you sign the typical employment papers then you wait x amount of days for your background check.

    Senior Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boca Raton, FL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Office Depot (Boca Raton, FL) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Had a final round interview at the headquarters in Boca. They scheduled the fight (longer than necessary with a lengthy layover) and I had to take care of booking everything else, transportation, hotel, etc... Was disappointed that they interview schedule changed dramatically. The person leaving the role and company was the primary decision maker and was somewhat aggressive in trying to justify why perhaps I was overqualified and would not be the best for the job. The hiring manager who was scheduled for a full hour only spent 10 minutes with me and people who were not on the schedule were added last minute to compensate. After the interview I had to chase the HR rep for a follow up which almost took one month.

    Interviewed with the human resources manager for an hour who then forwarded my information to the store manager. Interviewed for over an hour with him.

Was in and out of the office and taking phone calls throughout. Was told when I left to contact him by Wednesday if I had not heard from the district manager by then to set up my interview. Got an email the following business day that I didn't get the job.
