    Business Development Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Austin, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Office Depot (Austin, TX).

    Interview

    It was pretty standard. You sit across from one of two managers that could hire you and they bounce questions and ideas off you to see how you respond. Only one of the two managers that interview you can bring you onto their team. They are in control of who's butt fills what seat and on what team.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Office Depot.

    Interview

    The interview was extremely brief. I expected a few questions that would potentially make me think about the answer, yet the interview process was just to see if I was competent enough to run a cash register and say a few set lines with every customer. Management did not seem to care about who I was or what skills I have, they just wanted a warm body to carry their marketing scheme and push product.

    Business Development Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Office Depot (Denver, CO) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I filled out several online applications, and was contacted within a couple of weeks. I was interviewed by a couple of different people several times over a 15 week period. The thing that was the most interesting was the poor continuity of the interview process. The notes that went back and forth between interviewers was poor at best, and I was asked the same question over and over by the same people that interviewed me. Finally, I had an interview with a hiring manager who I could tell from the beginning of the interview was not interested in my background. The day following the last interview I received an email thanking me for my going through the interview process, but were not going forward. I found the process amateur at best.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Office Depot (Reston, VA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    A very good interviewer and never seemed demanding nor overbearing. A very good manager. The assistant manager had seen me once before for a job fair, but could not find the paperwork I had submitted. When I came this time, he had the paperwork on top of the manager's desk.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me three questions on how I felt the company (and store) should be run, about profit and loss statements, and what I could bring to the team.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Office Depot in April 2016.

    Interview

    I called to see if they were hiring and one of the workers who answered the phone, and told me they were and to go complete an application, so i did. I called a couple days later and spoke with the hiring manager, and he set me up for an interview the next day. I consented to a background check, and called a couple days later. Everything came back fine and I was then told to come in the next day and meet with the store manager. Basically, he explained the days I'd work and when I could start.

    Logistics Specialist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Office Depot (Waco, TX) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Asked as few questions on how I would handle customers. What my availability was and what shifts I would like to work. It's straight forward and not hard.The part that took a few days was the background check. But after that everything else went smoothly. I mainly worked morning shifts and we only had two to three people working. That wasn't so bad but there were a few days when we had a ton of customers come in and only a few people able to assist.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Office Depot (Denver, CO) in April 2016.

    Interview

    At my store, a person can walk in dressed decently, fill out the application on the computers in the store and speak directly with the store manager regarding any open positions. It seems to me that they will hire anybody that passes the background check. There is also no drug test required at store level.
