    Impress Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Marietta, GA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at OfficeMax (Marietta, GA).

    Interview

    Basic interview. I talked to the store manager and department manager on the same day, so don't expect multiple interviews. The process was not intimidating and if you land an interview while the store is actively hiring then you are pretty much guaranteed a job.

    Interview Questions

    • I can't remember specific questions, but expect to be asked about sales and customer service.   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at OfficeMax (Atlanta, GA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    The Customer Sales Manager called me in two days after I applied online. Very informal, due to the fact that most prospects are under 20. Personally, I wore a suit, but most applicants could get away with khakis and a dress shirt. We had a 30 Minute conversation about the position and my qualifications pertaining to that position. He then gave me a formal offer at the end.

    Interview Questions

    • If a customer comes in to the store wanting to return a product they had bought thirty-one days prior, and our company policy on returns is thirty days, how would you handle that situation?   1 Answer

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at OfficeMax (Atlanta, GA) in November 2013.

    Interview

    Very short and straight to the point. I don't like interview that takes about too long. Most companies you have to do background checked and drug test. They usually give you back a called or email to let you know if you got the job or not.

    Sales Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Marietta, GA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at OfficeMax (Marietta, GA) in February 2013.

    Interview

    Filled out an application online after viewing the position on indeed.com. Submitted an excellent cover letter that attracted the hiring managers attention. About a week later I received a phone call and was asked a few questions such as my previous employment and why I want to work for officemax. They were very simple questions. Next I scheduled an interview that week and did a one on one sit down with the manager she asked about 20 questions nothing hard. Sell me something in the room? Tell me about a time you had to trust an employee? The interview process was fast and fairly simple. She said she had to interview some more ppl and she would get back to me. About two weeks later I was offered a position and asked to come in and do a drug test and background check. I was a little confused because usually a job will do all of that before offering you a position. But everything checked out and I got the job. Seriously study up on technology and specs because you will need this knowledge for this job. Be yourself and professionalism is a must.

    Traditional hiring process. Interviewing has changed some based on the position. About 4 interviews for the Store Manager position including a group interview. It is a long process and there doesn't seem to be any sense of urgency.

    B2B Outside Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at OfficeMax (Atlanta, GA) in February 2010.

    Interview

    The position I applied for consisted of 3 telephone interviews. (recruiter, HR Rep, Hiring Manager). I was then asked to attend a company paid interview in Chicago. First with the Hiring Manager and then with the Division VP of Sales. I was very confident after the 3 telephone interviews that I was the ideal candidate. I was even more confident after interviewing with the hiring manager. The Division VP interview seemed to go well, but felt that there was a bias issue that stood between us. After the Interview process, the Hiring Manager, came back in the room with a completely dejected look on his face and sound in his voice to let me know that I would hear back from them within a week. It was obvious that the hiring manager had been shot down but couldn't respond. The next week, I heard back from HR that I had decided to take a different direction.
