    Inside Sales Representative Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Office Depot (Austin, TX) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The first part of the interview was a phone call from the HR rep. He seemed so down and not happy to do the call at all. I passed his portion of the interview however and was scheduled a week later to meet in person. I met with two managers who interviewed me. I thought the interview went well, I can prepared and answered the questions honestly. After the interview I got a call a few hours later saying that I was not chosen to go on to the next round, as I do not have sales experience. Which, I have over eight years in aggressive cold calling, in and outbound sales. That left a terrible aftertaste in my mouth.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Office Depot.

    Interview

    I started my online application and took a break during the online assessment. I received a call from the store telling me that they were doing interviews a few days later, so I should finish my application soon. They told me to call back after I finished, so I did. I was set up with an interview immediately.

    I showed up at the store and was interviewed by two managers. They asked questions about my background in sales and motivations and strengths and weaknesses. We talked about expectations and I had to try and sell a desk accessory. The interview lasted about 45 minutes.

    I was called two days later for a second interview with another manager. This interview was very similar to the first and we went over availability and my roles if I'm chosen for the job. This interview lasted 20 minutes.

    I was called two days later and told that as long as I passed the background check, I was hired.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Office Depot (Boca Raton, FL) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Had two phone interviews with company's recruiter and hiring manager, then two more onsite and met the team and director. Everything seem to go fine and expected some kind of feedback at the end of the process, they even mentioned I would hear back from them. It was a horrible experience after meeting them so many time, the company did not have the decency to respond whether it was a positive or negative one. That was not professional whatsoever, no respect for the individual, I will not recommend this place at all!
