    Great! The manger was amiable and welcoming; she made me feel comfortable and at ease. The interview felt conversation instead of being talked at or interrogated. After having a friendly conversation, she offered me the position!

    Third Key Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bridgeport, CT
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Papyrus (Bridgeport, CT).

    Interview

    The interview process is literally "be a friend of someone who works there." That's it. Don't bother applying otherwise. No interview. Hired sight unseen. Worked out for them. I was young and dumb and now I stay because I get paid to read sometimes.

    Part Time Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Ypsilanti, MI

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Papyrus (Ypsilanti, MI) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Applied to the position online by sending in my resume to the email address they had on the mall site. A couple of hours later, I received a call from the manager and she asked when I would be available for an interview. So the response time was VERY FAST, which was awesome. I went in the next day ( I didn't bring my resume because I knew she had a copy already) for my interview and the manager was really nice. I knew I had the job because she told me she absolutely loved my resume and loved how I formatted it. We sat outside of the store (in the mall) and she asked a few basic questions. Most of the interview was spent by her explaining the history of papyrus, which was cool, even though I already researched the site. She offered me the position and I accepted. She then told me that I would receive a call from her district manager the next day so that she could get to know me too.
    I did receive a call the next day by the district manger. She seemed nice but sort of distracted. I understood that she had a busy morning, though. She asked me more basic interview questions then offered the position once again, and I accepted.

    Selling Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Westlake, OH
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Papyrus (Westlake, OH) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I went to a 2 part interview. First with a store manager and then with the district manager. The first interview was very relaxed. Just asked my past experience and how I would apply that to a current position. If I had handled cash, worked independently, etc. Really a lot of it was telling me what my role would be. The second interview was quite similar but more about my customer service experience. Really making sure I knew the ropes in terms of a higher quality experience that was associated with a more expensive store. I was hired on the spot after my second interview but I'm not sure that's common for them (got the vibe that it wasn't). Make sure to research the company's values before!

    Assistant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Typical interview questions. Interviewer seemed annoyed to have to take time out of her day to talk to me.

    This was my 3rd interview (2nd in person interview). It's been two weeks and no one has called, emailed, or written to offer/decline to offer me a job. Very unprofessional.

    Horrible. The woman didn't even look me in my face or greet me, no hand shake. When I told her my name she was just kind of (like yea ok whatever just sit down.) Not to mention I had to wait for her to be ready to interview me.
