    Seasonal Sales Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Inverness, FL
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at OfficeMax (Inverness, FL).

    Interview

    I applied for a seasonal sales position online and was contacted a couple of days later about an interview. The interview process itself was pretty painless; I researched the position on Glassdoor, and it went nearly the same for me as it had for others who applied for the same position. I thought the interview went well. It was explained to me that the seasonal position was actually a probationary period; if hired and if things went well, I would likely be asked if I was interested in long-term employment. Most of the questions pertained to the type of work conditions I felt comfortable with, and my feelings about taking a full-time position if it was offered after the season. I was not contacted about the job opening after the interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at OfficeMax (Los Angeles, CA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online which took only a few minutes (less than 10) plus screening questions. I was contacted by the store manager a few days after I submitted an application and an interview was scheduled. I came into the store about 15 minutes before my interview time. The interview lasted about 40-45 minutes. He told me he was going to recommend me for a second interview with the district manager and that was conducted 30 minutes because the district manager was coming into the store anyway. After about a week I was offered the position and happily accepted.
