    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Office Depot (Garden Grove, CA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    The interview felt very informal. The Assistant Store Manager asked me a lot of questions regarding what I like to do and why I chose to apply for this position. She also asked me the difference between a laser and inkjet printer. Then we moved on to my interest in technology and such. It was very laid-back. I think they were in need of employees so anyone looking decent enough would get the job.
