    Interview

    It was fairly simple. They asked questions like "tell me about yourself" and "Do you know what this position entails?" The manager was fairly nice and he did a nice job going over the job position. We sat in the back of the store in the furniture department

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Office Depot in May 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online, and got a call from the de facto assistant manager for an interview about 2 weeks later. It was brief, less than 10 minutes, but the interviewer told me that he liked me and that I should expect a second interview call within a few days. I got the call for that and scheduled it for the next week with the store manager. This one was much longer; it was supposed to be 30 minutes but ended up being an hour. However, I believe this was only because the questions I asked him required him to talk and explain things in a detailed manner. Unlike the first interviewer, this one kept his cards close to the chest; I had no idea where I stood going forward. However, I was told that I would be contacted (whether I got the job or not) within a few days, and fortunately for me I did.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Office Depot (New York, NY).

    Interview

    A very long process 2-month minimum, expect longer if the current manager is switching positions, no one wants to pull the trigger and hire someone they are not going to train. Make sure to write well thought out Thank you letters and be extremely nice to the Admins as they run the show.
