    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at OfficeMax.

    Interview

    It was a panel interview. One person would ask questions while the other person wrote down the answers and then they switched and the other person asked questions and the other one wrote down your answers. Then they said they would get back to you after the interview was over. Very professional in all aspects. Even had to role play a little on how to get a sale.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at OfficeMax (Austin, TX) in November 2015.

    Interview

    It was simple and average, the manager at the time was odd though and all around didn't know what he was doing. He was later fired by corporate for groping customers and staff alike.

    Print Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Kansas City, MO

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at OfficeMax (Kansas City, MO) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Interview was rather standard. Initially interviewed to work as a sales associate but they actually offered me a position for the Print department since there was a huge need there. Talked with the store manager as well as the print supervisor. Rather easy interview. Felt like they were in a position where they would offer the job to anyone to fill store needs. Hired on the spot.

    Interview Questions

    • Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
      How did you handle a difficult customer?
      Sell to me (a random item) in the store.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at OfficeMax (Jackson, MI) in September 2015.

    Interview

    It was just a quick interview with standard questions. My manager made it pretty casual. He had a list of questions he was supposed to ask, but kind of just picked ones he wanted to ask. I felt comfortable, and it made the interview easy.

    Online application, got a phone call a couple days later to schedule an interview. Quick interview, received offer afterwards (based on prior work experience and education level...they have a sheet they look at to determine pay offer).

    Interview Questions

    • They asked if I'd be a long term or short term employee. Didn't really ask too much, just kind of read through my resume and application with me.   Answer Question

    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
