    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at OfficeMax (East Peoria, IL) in May 2018.

    Interview

    Interview with Asst. Manager went well, was basically promised the job but then the Store Manager interview was a terrible experience. I ended up not getting the position due to one of my answers that the Store Manager thought meant I couldn't do the job but was exactly what the assistant manager needed for the store.

    I initially applied and submitted my resume online for this position and was contacted by the HR department a couple of days later for an initial phone screening.
