Very relaxed interview process, very simple predictable questions, and everyone who has gotten an interview has gotten the job at my store, as long as you do some research on basic questions and you prepare your answers you shouldn't be caught off guard.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at OfficeMax (Maple Grove, MN) in July 2015.

    Interview

    This interview must've been a joke because it was pretty funny. Arrived to interview on time, wasn't interviews until 10 minutes later. Interview was in furniture section of the store- that is so weird. Interviewer was coloring little symbols on paper when I answered questions, not sure what they meant. I was told I'd get a call for interview #2. To be honest I walked out of the store thinking I hope they don't call me. The people that worked there are weird and the environment is dark and dreary. I had bad feelings from the moment I walked in. Low and behold I was never called again for a second interview as I was told. The pay isn't good either. Hours were limited.

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at OfficeMax in April 2015.

    Interview

    You first apply online, then you get a call for interview. Either the sales manager of the operations manager will interview you. Then, believe it or not, you interview in the office furniture area. You literally grab a seat and sit behind one of the desks.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at OfficeMax (San Francisco, CA) in October 2013.

    Interview

    Short. They left me a voice message on my phone. I called back and the # I called back is actually the store number. We did a quick informal interview over the phone and set up a in-person interview. I got hired on the spot and also I was required to take a drug test. I believe drug testing is required anymore though.

    Negotiation

    There wasn't one. Pay was never discussed or negotiated throughout the entire hiring process. I was a minor and it was my first real job and they took advantage of it. LAter on in my employment I felt taken advantage of due to my childhood ignorance and being rushed to complete my hiring paper work within minutes
