Called me about a week after I applied asking basic personality type questions. During the same phone call asked me to come in the next week for an in-person interview. The on-site interview was mostly behavioral and running through the resume.

    Interview

    Very simple behavioral questions. The interview was very casual and not a lot of questions were asked. Come into the store in person, prepared and with a resume and cover letter.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Office Depot.

    Interview

    Basic interview. Seemed they were just hiring for seasonal employees. Seemed like manager was just bothered about the whole process and that it was taking up time he needed to complete his own work. Very easy, not too many questions. Just basic and going through basic steps.

    Interview

    I walked in and said I wanted a job, filled out a form online and I was hired. There was no drug test or back ground check. This is just extra stuff I need to write to be able to submit this review.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Office Depot (Fayetteville, GA) in November 2016.

    Once you complete the online application (there's a test) they invite you in for an interview that's relatively easy and you'll pretty much know before the interview is over whether or not you have the job.

    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.
