I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Staples.

Interview

Filled out application online. Got an email a couple hours laater for a phone interview. I scheduled the phone interview for the next day. Interviewer had no personality. She seemed like she was reading from a script. Her response was always "great", so I thought it went well. She said a store manager would call me. I never got a call.
