    Logistics Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Encino, CA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Office Depot (Encino, CA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    The Interview wasn't what i had gone through before. It was more of a informal rather than an actual 1 on 1 which wasn't bad, though it felt more like the manager was trying to tell me about the store than who i am.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Office Depot (Manhattan Beach, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Saw a flyer on my college campus and applied online. Finished most of the application and decided to do the questionnaire later, but within and hour they called and asked me to finish so they could schedule an interview. I finished, but two weeks later I got an email saying the position was filled. One month later i got a call form the manager saying she enjoyed my application and would like to interview me because they're hiring again. Scheduled the interview for the day after she called. It went well, she was really sweet and made me feel comfortable. It lasted about 30 mins. After it was over she said i did really well, especially since it was my first interview ever. She called about 2 hrs after I left and said I got the job.

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • How can you sell me this pencil (or any object they choose in the room)?   Answer Question
