    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Office Depot (Miami, FL) in July 2016.

    Interview

    The store manager called a few days after I applied online. He asked basic questions (Are you currently in college?, Is this your first job?, etc..) and set up an interview in-store for the next week.
    The interview at the store was pretty easy, mostly asking for experience and if I had knowledge of PowerPoint, Word, and Excel.

    Awful, pointless questions with no intention of hiring. The questions didn't have a thing to do with my experience and my experience was not even considered when deciding whether to hire me.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Office Depot (Las Vegas, NV) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online several times within the time-span of a few months. The company called my house phone, rather than my cell-phone (which I had requested specifically). The manager who was on the phone was friendly, and requested an interview which would take place within 5 days of the phone call at noon.

    On the day of the interview, I arrived 5 minutes early to the store. I informed a recently hired employee that I was scheduled for an interview. The employee called the manager, but he was not there. Instead, I had to wait for about 15-20 minutes for a supervisor to come and get me. The interview took place in a fairly small room. Unlike the manager whom I spoke with over the phone, the supervisor was not very engaging, and didn't seem like he wanted to do this interview. Upon completion of the interview, he said I would hear back from the company within a few days. I did not hear back from them until 3 weeks had passed.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Office Depot (Victorville, CA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was very straightforward, but be ready to answer lots of questions! Still, the manager was very friendly and not intimidating at all. He likes his interviews to be like a conversation rather than just the typical "question and answer" interviews. Some questions involved your future plans, he asks you things regarding your resume, he'll ask you to demonstrate you would sell a customer certain materials Office Depot carries, how you would handle a angry customer. But overall, not a bad interview at all.
