Copy and Print Associate Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Staples (College Point, NY) in January 2014.

Interview

So I applied just on a whim, I needed a job immediately and any part time job would do. Within a week I got a call back and scheduled my interview for the following week. When I got to the interview, it was a little busy in the store so I had to wait on the Manager. He brought me into the office apologized and then it began. I was asked the generic questions, you know like what would do scenarios, what have you done in certain situations and of course why do I want to be a Staples copy & print tech. It wasn't bad at all nor intimidating. At the end he let me know they will call me within the week if they will do a 2nd interview or not. Of course I got the 2nd interview.
Now the 2nd interview is a breeze. You basically have the job and the manager just wants to showcase you to the other managers and the Copy and Print Supervisor. I was asked one or 2 questions. Same type scenarios based question and why Staples copy and print tech. That was basically it. They proceeded to tell me more about the company and the Interview over. The next day I came to fill in the paper work and the following day after that I started working. Very quick process. The staff was all very friendly and un-intimidating. The whole environment is welcoming.

    I didn't even finish the application process. I was hired around the Back To School time. Thats when the most of the hiring gets done. Back to School is the perfect time to get a job at staples. Its a wonderful environment. Wonderful people to help train me, and guide me though the steps for me to become a better copy and print Associate.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Staples.

    Interview

    Process was that I was first called to do a brief interview at the store. Call was made soon and was made within 2 weeks of applying online. Online application includes a survey and basic history. Questions were basic and average about experience, availability, and scenarios. Follow-up interview is required if you pass that first interview. Average experience in applying.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Staples (Orem, UT).

    Interview

    Never got one, applied online, called for a follow up, received a no thank you email 2 minutes later of phone call? Not even enough time to read my application, never meet anyone in person! Do you not want to know who you are hiring anymore? Or is it just the person reviewing mood when you call! She obviously did not look at anything.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Staples.

    Interview

    Filled out application online. I hadn't heard back from them within two weeks, so I walked into store and asked for a manager. When they directed me to apply online, I stated that I did. Once they confirmed that I actually did send in the application, we established an interview for the next day. Interviewed two with two different managers. Each time was really basic questions (it was my first job and they knew that) and focused on my ability to learn and remain open minded. I was hired during the second interview.

    Interview

    I applied online and the process was about 1 week. I was called for an interview with the assistant store manager then a few days later I had an interview with the store manager. I received a call that same week with a job offer for the position and I accepted.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were fairly easy. I was asked about sales experience and my education background. As long as you have examples from previous employers you should do okay. I was also shown some examples of print work and I was asked to point out some mistakes that may have been made during production.   Answer Question

    I applied online and was called in for an interview a few days later. I interviewed with two different people on the same day. They both asked the same basic questions about previous work experience, school, etc. They gave a couple of scenario based questions but they were straight forward. No tough questions, nothing out of the ordinary.
